A Beautiful Tribute

A young man has dedicated a song in a loving tribute to his best friend, Ollie Naismith, who tragically lost his life late last year.

James Shead has written and performed this heart felt song, If I Could (Ollie’s Song).

Ollie, a budding guitarist and surfing fanatic, had ambitions to become a RAF pilot and was enjoying a year out.

The popular 19 year old, described as a ‘friend magnet’, was driving when his car crashed in Saltash on December 6. He was pronounced dead at the scene and no other cars were involved.

Songwriter James Stead

Since his death over 2000 people have joined a Facebook memorial group dedicated to him and hundreds of people attended his funeral, where James débuted his song.

Another friend, Joe White is recording the song played at Ollie's funeral and Sam powell from Truro will soon be recording an album.

5th June a memorial concert will be held at Truro College with monies raised going to the Looe Lifeboat fund.

There are plans to name the new lifeboat for the coastal town after Ollie.
