Thanks for having me, I thought it was a terrific service, it was great to hear all the stories and discover more of who Chris was as a father and partner. From my limited time spent with him he appeared although quiet, a very proud father and grandfather and someone who had a lot of love for his family. My deepest condolences to all family and all touched by his passing. Rest in peace Chris. Cheers!

Chris W,

Even though we only worked together for only a short time, I will miss our chats and your knowledge. You became such a valued member of the team so quickly. My thoughts and wishes are with your family and I'm sure you will be missed by family, friends and colleagues alike.
Rest in Peace.

Dear Kali, Christopher, Andrew and Stephen
I was fortunate to have met Chris whilst he worked with us over the past 6 months. Always willing to share his wisdom and always greeted you with a smile and his unique brand of humour. His gentle, calm and sincere approach will be missed.

Dear Kali, Christopher, Andrew and Stephen

I am so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of Chris. Although I had only worked with Chris for the past 6 months, he was a joy to be around - so kind, knowledgeable and at times very witty! He was also very supportive of his work colleagues and this is such a true reflection of his kind and caring nature, nothing was ever too much trouble for him. He will be fondly remembered.

Jon Foley-Donoghue on 18 September, 2020 at 3:04pm

Whitaker family, I knew Chris for a short time - but he left a big, calm, peaceful and solid impression. I recently lost my brother in far away land of the world - so I feel your loss and difficult grieving process at hart.
