Really sad news. Although I didn't know Chris, I have chatted to him a few times at events and he was a really friendly and decent guy. Condolences to his family and friends.

A truely tragic loss, we have all lost a great friend
Those of you who got the oppertunity to meet Chris will know what a great guy he was. Always smiling, always willing to help and always with coffee on hand

I hope that Chris is driving his mini every day up there! Rest in peace mate!

He was a nice old guy!

He talked lots, he enthused about Mini and he was a genuine salt of the earth type guy.

This thread should not be sullen, but should pay respect and celebrate a man named Chris.

Take it easy mate, I'll miss you chewing my ear off about your bleedin roof graffic!

There goes another Mini2 legend. A thoroughly nice bloke who I am pleased to have made acquaintances with. Like many others here I met him back in the early days of the Cotswolds and have had some lovely banter and chats with over the years.

Although I'm not an active member of Mini2 any more I thought it appropriate to post my respects here.

My sincere condolences go out to his family and close friends.

I'm sorry to hear about this, well remember Chris from the early MINI2 club stand days, he was usually one of the first to sign up for a spot. Always a pleasant man to speak to, the first time he came to a show we talked about how to fit a Cooper S filler cap to his Mini as i'd just done mine . All in all a very nice man, missed by all who knew him, Bye Chris

Terrible news, I only had the pleasure of briefly meeting Chris a handful of times, but a very genuine man who had a passion for MINI's and always a coffee! Condolences to all his family.
