On Saturday morning I received the devastating news that Edward Barnshaw, one of my closest friends and business partner had sadly passed away.
Anyone who ever spent even a little time with Ed knows what a kind and generous person he was. For him, giving wasn’t an act, but a way of life. Over the years, I think he’s taken half of Birmingham for dinner and he’s probably kept a number of florists in business with the steady stream of flowers, sometimes given to random strangers just to make them smile. I remember one time he bought umbrellas and we stood in the rain outside New Street train station so he could give them to people in need when they exited. His ‘luxury’ in life wasn’t material items, but the enjoyment on others faces when he helped them.
It was always important to Ed that he could offer his support to those less fortunate or in need, and I’ve heard some beautiful stories this weekend where he has helped people literally turn their lives around. I truly believe he saved others lives in doing this. Ed was only here for 44 years, but in that time, his kindness and generosity changed the world for the better, enough for a thousand lifetimes.
It upsets me deeply to think I’ll never get another rib-cracking ‘Barnshaw hug’, or hear that infectious laugh. I’ll miss the random WhatsApp memes at 2am and the support he’s given when I’ve needed it the most. Ed has been a brother for 22 years and although I feel numb at his loss, I remain so happy and grateful we spent so much time together. Ed leaves behind an amazing fiancée who has been incredibly strong and one of the most caring families I’ve had the pleasure of knowing.
Until we meet again brother
I heard the terrible news last night but it did not sink in. It still has not but I realise Edward Barnshaw u r here no more.

I still remember like it was yesterday when you entered class rushing in with u briefcase and announcing you are Edward Barnshaw! We still kept in touch all these years even up to recently on your birthday. I miss u already….RIP u are gone 2 soon. My condolences to the Barnshaw family…..
To say I’m shocked is the wrong word! Speechless more like!
Edward Barnshaw you were quite simply one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, from out clubbing with you, at parties with you, laughing together watching your brother Gamboling down the garden, admiring your “Croc” collection to doing business with you.
I know there are people on here who you have touched more deeply than me but I know we all have one thing in common, we all thought you were the best!
The great always die too soon
RIP Ed. You always be in my thoughts pal
I am truly devastated that I would ever in a million years need to write this.
Edward Barnshaw you were an inspiration to me in business and a true true friend ( Part of the family as you would say)
The world today lost one of the true greats who put everyone before himself and bought happiness where ever he went.
Thank you for the lessons and showing all of us how being a kind and truly lovely person is done!
I will miss you Ed, and things will never be the same without your energy!
I am so happy we got one last catchup on Wednesday and all your memories will forever be with me
RIP Ed, we will love and miss you always !!
