His wife, Jo Kilkenny, wanted to remember him like this on social media:
“This is the hardest message I’ve ever written. Yesterday, Chris suddenly left us. He was the most lovable, kind and modest man in the world, always ready to lend a hand to others. He was inspiring for everyone. I apologize to those who have not been informed personally, but there were many people who loved him. Leave time to me and his family and friends to absorb this pain and cry “.
