GARY ANDERSONS BROTHER HAS DIED

Postby BOBBLACKBERRY » Fri Sep 09, 2011 4:11 pm

DARTS ace Gary Anderson has been hiding a secret torment — the death of his brother.

The 40-year-old star was told tragic Stuart had passed away suddenly — then overcame his agony to produce the performance of his career days later.


Dad-of-two Stuart, 35, who had battled a heroin addiction, died in hospital after suffering a heart attack.


But while awaiting his funeral, Eyemouth ace Gary — known as The Flying Scotsman — trounced former world finalist Mark Dudbridge 6-0 in their Pro Tour clash, scoring the highest three-dart average in Professional Darts Corporation history.




Passed away ... Stuart, with partner Karen
Mark Craig Last night, talking about Stuart's death for the first time, Gary said: "It's been a very emotional time for the whole family. We are all very sorry for his loss."


Tragic Stuart, who lived in Musselburgh, East Lothian, with partner Karen Cosgrove and their two kids Sinead and Kyle, died at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary two weeks ago.




Stuart is named in his obituary as Gary's "dear brother" and uncle to Gary's sons Ryan, 16, and Joel, 12 — who live with his ex-wife Rosemary in Berwick.


His funeral was held on Tuesday at Edinburgh's Warriston Crematorium — three days after Gary beat Dudbridge in Derby with the record three-dart average of 123.5.


Gary went on to lose to John Part in the quarter-final before beating Peter Wright in the final of the second Derby Pro event on Sunday. He then drove straight up to Scotland to be at his mum Marilyn's side.


In 2009 Gary said he hoped Stuart would be able to "sort his life out". The star now lives in Rooksbridge, Somerset, where he runs the Wellington Arms with partner Rachel Ford. He was runner-up in the PDC World Championships in January and won the PDC Premier League in May.

Heroin is such an awful awful drug. A good friend of mine in high school, his older brother, had multiple degrees from different universities and was a law student at Stanford when he overdosed on heroin. It takes the sense out of smart people. Best of luck to Gary and his family - especially Stuart's sons - dealing with this loss.

Sad indeed. ...and such tragic circumstances.

I hope Gary can always keep his brother in his mind and in his heart and will fill a big void for his nephews.
