As a family we would like to thank everyone who came to Chris' funeral and wake.
We didn't realise how many hearts he had touched over the years. He was a most kind, generous, selfless person. We miss him so much but memories of him will live in our hearts forever.

We wish to thank everyone who helped us to nurse Chris in his last few days at home as he wished. He looked very peaceful in the end.

As a family we are grieving for our loss. He enriched our lives in so many ways.
His memory will live in our hearts forever. Love Carol and family xxxx

Chris was a lovely man who was taken too early. I have fond memories over the 33 years we knew each other, but for some reason, discussing Blind Faith on a freezing winter's morning on the platform at Staplehurst station sticks out. Please keep using the jukebox.

Chris was far more to me than my big brother, he was the great, generous and genuine guy I always looked up to and who so often looked out to help me as he did for others too.

We're supposed to say Rest in Peace but I'd wish somehow Chris could be in a classic V8 muscle car playing West Coast music with the volume on 11

Words are hard to find. So many lovely family days with the children, and, more recently great conversation during our walks followed by coffee, cake and/or a pub lunch! A privilege and a pleasure to have Chris as a friend and inspiration over many years. Our thoughts are with Carol and her family at this difficult time.

Brenda and I enjoyed visiting National Trust and English Heritage places with Chris & Carol. I took this picture of Chris at Petworth in 2013. I think it's a striking image, set against a wonderful landscape, that conveys his strength of character.

It was hard to choose a photo but this picture really sums up some of the best memories...the many Christmas evenings with Dad in charge of the Escalado horse races. As the picture shows, a family man bringing joy to those around him. Love Joanne xxx
