Oy my! Thats the saddest news. I'm shocked, he was the sweetest man. I only met him once back in 2005/6(?) at Beaulieu? (my memory is shocking) for the first MINI meet I went on and I had the priviledge of parking next to his yellow beauty. He was so charming and friendly and I intantly liked him straight away we chatted most of the day and from then on on the forums. He doted on his daughters and my thoughts are with the whole family at this very sad time.

Rest in peace Chris (Phoenix) x

he was a true gent and a great friend - I will miss him greatly.

He loved his MINI and we spent many a time chatting about this and that as he often popped up to the studio if he was passing just to see if any MINIs were here.

A great loss to the MINI community and to all his friends.

I'm so shocked and saddened to have heard this news. I met Phoenix several times at various shows and I always thought how he seemed to be such a friendly, helpful guy.

My thoughts are with his family at this time.

Rest In Peace Chris, you'll sure be missed.

RIP Phoenix

I was shocked and saddened to hear of this news last night. My heart goes out to Linzi and Karina during this difficult time.

I have very fond memories but in particular of MITP 2006 where Chris was supplying everyone with coffee from the boot of his car! Typical of Chris who was so thoughtful, generous and a charming person.

You'll be missed... x

Oh dear, another tragic loss.

Very sorry to hear this news. Condolences to Chris's family.

Chris had one of the community's most distinctive MINIs, even visible on Google Earth if I remember correctly.

Very sad indeed.

Unfortunately, I never met him. It's sad to see the passing of someone in the community.

Rest in peace and condolences to his family.

Sincerely,
Andrew.

I too echo the words already posted Chris was a true Gent and friend, always willing to give advice and help in any way he could and even hand out tea and coffee at MINI events.

The MINI community has lost a special person, my condolences to his family at this time.
