    Tragic. Never replied to his posts, couldn’t think of anything to say. Bit like now.

    RIP.

    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.

    Looking at his Facebook page, it looks like the Clock beat Chris..
    I only “knew” him on here, and only ridden with him a couple of times, but he seemed a really decent bloke..
    Thoughts to his wife and all those who knew himat this time..

    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.

    Stumbled on his thread late last night and opened it to see if he replied about the comment I made about it being a bitch to inflate the tyres on the mobility scooter.. but found nothing. It made me think that something might be up. Now I know. RIP. :O(

    Very sad.

    But what courage and honour. I hope when my time comes I can show a fraction of that.

    Best wishes to his wife and family.

    Ride fast, ride free.

    Never met him in real life, but his courage online in the face of his illness was both humbling and inspiring – RIP πŸ™

    Terrible and sad news.
    I’d read the post and followed it as my OH is going throughthe same. My thoughts for his family now. πŸ™

    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.

    Missed this sticky πŸ™

    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.

    RIP.

    RIP Marsdenman

    Never met you but will be thinking of you, your family and friends when that organised bike ride comes through Huddersfield on Sunday.

    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 …….

    Although I never had the pleasure of meeting you Chris – I know people on here who thought a lot about you & I heard from them what a top bloke you were.

    So very, very sad… :-(. Sincere Condolences. Ride in peace…
