Today we said our final farewells to our leader Cllr Chris Black. A 100 strong turnout for Chris’ funeral was a true reflection of what kind of person Chris was. Kind, Generous, Intelligent, Caring, Popular….. and Cool! A lovely service, attended from all corners of the community it was truly a very moving experience.
Chris will be missed by many – so long ‘young Chris’
Yes, we thought the service did Chris proud , his old school chum gave us an
insight to his formative years and Steve Tellis summarised his adult career dedicated to local matters as a Councillor.
Tunes from Human League & Billy Joel gave yet another take on an otherwise
‘staid pillar of the community’ – rest in peace Chris , farewell from Jim&Pat.
A thoroughly decent man who did his very best for the community of Rayleigh. Chris will be much missed. Linda Kendall
thank you Linda, he is very much missed
