- Heaven is 10000 lumens brighter now. RIP Troutie
It’s been difficult but at the same time so nice to read about how Troutie touched your lives in one way or another. He really was an inspiration to so many people.
The Gewmans are aware of the sad news
I will also copy this link to his daughter Jem so she can see how much he meant to everyone in the STWPosted 8 months agoMacgyverMember
Bollocks. I never met him in person but he was incredibly trusting and generous to me about 10 years ago. I was doing adventure racing with work and posted in here about what was best bang for buck lights as we needed some more for a night biking stage. Chris just offered the use of his early liberator light prototypes as long as I reviewed them for him. He must have sent a complete stranger a couple of hundred quids worth of kit in the post! Ended up with a liberator a couple of years later as present from my wife, she said he was ace to deal with. RIP Troutie. Our thoughts are with your family.Posted 8 months agomboyMember
Oh christ! Another!!! So sad to hear this, Chris made some awesome lights (of which I still own a couple), but regularly remember his pearls of wisdom on here. Never met him but did speak to him a few times on the phone, and a more helpful chap you could not have wished for!
