We are shocked and saddened by the news of Chris’s passing earlier this month. Chris and Estelle had been loyal and staunch supporters of our club through the year’s and assisted our efforts in many ways and regularly sponsored some of our events and dinners. They also contributed to several of our fundraising campaigns for conservation projects.
Chris put up such a brave fight over several year – even during the time of Estelle’s terrible illness. He continued with his participation in club activities after Estelle’s passing by attending meetings (both virtual and in person) and outings. During the latter he even blossomed into an excellent photographer.
Our thoughts are with their family members and the many close friends in our club. They will be fondly remembered.
(We include a small selection of images taken over the years).
