Sad news of Chris's passing.


Hi All, sad to say, Chris passed away 20th May 5am, peacefully, at home, with his Mum, sisters, neice and I with him. It's what he wanted and was ready to leave his worn out body.

Thank you all for being there for him over many years. As weak as he was he was still joking. Just 12hrs before he passed he told his sisters in their late 50's, and his neice to take the 2 mobility scooters round the block. They had a Brilliant time playing round the block and in the garden!

He was a wonderful husband and only ever wanted the best for me. He made sure I was settled in a lovely bungalow, and from his bed, via his iPad and Ebay got it comfortable for mine and our families future. Our boys and their families love it.

Love and God bless,

From Chris's, everloving wife, Lilian.

Thank you all. Yes, we have had great adventures making everlasting memories that we were able to reminisce about over, this last year, and still making memories. My sons, eldest grandson and I collected Chris's ashes yesterday. Back at the bungalow we partied, with the grandchildren playing air guitars to Chris's favourite music and watching his favourite hymns on TV's YouTube like How Great Thou Art, and Amazing Grace. Brilliant man, loved family and fun. Xxx

Dear Lillian, I am so sorry to hear this news of Chris. Thank you so much for letting us all know. I always enjoyed reading his tales of the canal boat and life in Portugal. He was such an entertaining writer and will be missed here. The party you had for him sounds a brilliant tribute to his memory, and I've no doubt he would have approved and enjoyed every moment.

My sincerest condolences to you and your family and friends. With love, Annie x
