In loving memory of Chris Leaton who sadly passed away on Thursday 16th September 2021.

Chris Leaton was a beloved son to Pip and Joy, brother to Nicholas, David and Peter, husband to Caroline, father to Rowan, Lucinda and Harriet and friend to all.

Chris had a great fondness for rugby and was an avid player in his prime where he played for clubs Old Beccahamiens and Fordingbridge. In more recent years Chris became immersed in coaching at Rugby Club Luxembourg and was the chairman at Wimborne Rugby Club.

Chris had many friends from JP Morgan across the Bournemouth and Luxembourg branches.

Chris was hugely admired and loved and will be deeply missed.

You were one of the good ones, it’s tragic to have been taken in your prime. It’s been an honour and privilege to have known you. I’m going try to live my life and be a bit more Chris.

Chris, I can’t believe you’ve gone. You were one of the most pleasant, funny and upbeat person I knew. So willing to share, shape and influence those around you. Over the years we had together you taught me how to be a gentlemen, I thank you and miss you. My thoughts are with you and your family who I know were very special to you. Gob bless

Still such sad news. Such an inspiration and example of how to behave and deal with people and the most stressful situations. Kind, calm, funny, caring. Nothing was ever too much trouble.Always ensured everyone was included.
