Chris Philips RIP

#1
Only just seen this in the latest Crafty.

Sad news that Chris lost his fight with cancer at the age of 36.

I served with Chris in Lemgo on our first posting and we had some good times together.

He then spent then majority of his career in NI.

For those that never met Chris, he was a great character, a very talented footballer and the best sparky I have served with...



What can I say, what a sad sad loss and my thoughts are with his family.

RIP my friend

Why do the good always die young..............

I also knew chris from our SMC and on a tour of NI. A really nice fella and one who whilst on our SMC would be the last man standing in the NAAFI and still pick up the stretcher as though he'd had a 2 day rest.

RIP Fella

I too had the honour of knowing Chris, at 2 CS Wksp in Gutersloh in 94/95. An unrivalled sparky, talanted footballer, but most importantly, a top bloke and a real morale fuelling character.

Deepest sympathy and condolences to his family.
