Football fans were shocked after hearing the news from the Football Association of Wales that Welsh national manager Gary Speed died at the age of just 42 on November 27, 2011. Gary Speed was found hanged at his £1.5million mansion in Huntington, on the outskirts of Cheshire where he lived with his wife and his two sons by his 40-year-old wife Louise, who has supported him throughout his career. According to the police, Gary Speed’s mystery death took place just after 7am and could be a suicide because there “were no suspicious circumstances.”

Hours later, the funeral tributes to Gary Speed poured in from players, former stars, friends and fans.
