I just saw this page and I'm in a bit of a shock. I didn't know him, but it still touches me.
I don't really know how to express myself in English so I'll just stick to rest in peace.

My goodness. I never visited this 'Announcements' section so have totally missed this piece of devastating news. I have personally met up with Monkey quite a few times. Had a few good hits with him. Yes, he is a very good player. More importantly, ever so helpful with all the useful information to help us improve our game. And as Rok said above, we had a meal together at Bondi when Rok was visiting. I am at least very glad to have actually met, played and dined with Monkey. His passing is so very sad to hear. My deepest condolences to his family.

Oh so sorry Choi. I thought someone would have told you up there. So sad for you to find out this way only now ;(

I just received the email from Choi.

I'm speechless.

Absolutely gobsmacked.

Chris was one of the nicest guys I've ever known. He showed me the TT scene in Sydney, even had a hit with me several times though my standards weren't anywhere close to his at the beginning. He introduced me to LP and chopping in November/December 2008. He'd SMS me once in a while to see how I was doing. I regret that I wasn't in contact with him as often in the past 2 years, and I'm immensely sorry not to have spoken to him before his passing.

Chris, your memory lives on for many of us. I will always remember my humble beginnings as a chopper and the day I practised chopping using LP with you for the very first time at Kensington back in late 2008. Rest in peace my friend.

I totally agree with fattchoi, I remember when he came to visit us at Maroubra Seals Club, I recall how enjoyable it was just to watch his faultless technique, very sad to hear of his passing, especially at such a young age, condolences to his family..

Yes I loved his experimentation and learning ability, RIP.
I just noticed the "in memory of" on the top right of this forum, thanks Haggisv and the mods
