Shit news, stand down Marsdenman..
Oh bollx. That was faster than I thought. I hope the quality was good for as long as possible, and that when time was up Chris and family didn’t have a long wait.
I thought it was a very brave and honourable decision at the time, best wishes to all his family and friends.Posted 4 years agomintimperialSubscriber
Yep, he’s gone. I’ve only just heard from Sharon, and I didn’t want to post anything before I did. He’d only just got back from hospital after a bit of a blip, and I was chatting to him via text just yesterday. He sounded ok, completely with it, and we talked about meeting up and stuff. Can’t believe that’s it.
Ride on, Chris. I’m going to miss you.Posted 4 years agoBen_mwSubscriber
I’m glad he made it home first. Must have been quite an effort.
One of life’s genuinely nice and decent folk as well as being braver than most when he needed to be. Met him through a ride he organised on here and then plenty of other rides with some locals. Had some great riding weekends away with Chris and the others.
Mine and Hazel’s thoughts are with you Sharon.
RIP Chris.Posted 4 years agonbtMember

My gorgeous husband Chris died today and let’s be honest, it’s just plain shit. But, and please take comfort in this, he got home from hospital yesterday and we had a lovely day and a chilled out evening with Team Turner all being back together.
I don’t think anyone quite realised how much energy Chris had put into keeping going recently and getting himself home and this morning I think he decided he didn’t have the energy to go on and stayed asleep. He was very peaceful, not in any pain and most importantly where he wanted to be.
It’s way too early for his life to have ended but it ended well and he didn’t suffer.
At first he couldn’t understand why so many people were so bothered about him and so desperate to help but eventually I got it through to him that so many people loved him …. because he was him and he deserved it.
Thank you for all the messages of support – I’m just going to have a bit of quiet time but I promise to call and ask if I need anything x x
I’ve been in bits since I heard, Chris was one of the good guys and meeting him had a positive impact on our lives. It’s typical of his behaviour that despite his condition, he remained upbeat – on Saturday afternoon we had a text from him wishing me good luck for my gig on Saturday night.

I think the shock of it is how short a time the whole thing has taken , from Graham and I seeing Chris at the Brownbacks races last August and thinking that he wasn’t his usual affable self and looked somewhat pre-occupied- to finding out about the cancer .Then him taking the brave decision to go for the quality of life rather than undergoing shite chemo too late , to the shock of seeing him on the electric scooter and now in less than a year he’s dead .What can you say really , a thoroughly nice and unassuming man who didn’t seem to have any edge to him or a bad word for anyone , and a family left behind .Enjoy each day kids cos you just never know the next card you’ll get dealt …….Posted 4 years ago
