Chippy Ray

Thought was time to post it on here

Ray has not been very well and unfortunately when he went for a scan to further investigate suspected gall stones in December he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer which had spread to other organs

He has spent a few months at home putting a very brave face on whenever I came to visit

Unfortunately this week things got worse and he has been admitted to a hospital for paliative care
I went to see him and he's being looked after very well but the doctors have suggested weeks rather than months

I will pass on regards/best wishes to Ray and his wife Yvonne

Will keep you all updated

Regards
Rob

Please pass on best wishes to Chippy and his wife. There is nothing any of us can say to make the situation better, but I am sure that knowing we are thinking of them both will be comforting.

Please pass best wishes and positive thoughts when you see him.

Very sad news - one of the stalwarts and one of those Locostbuilders who you just expected to see passing on their knowledge gained through actual experience.

My best wishes to all who know him well.

Please wish Chippy and his family all the very best.

Really sad news. Known for a while from an off LB mutual friend of Ray's and been very sad about it.

Let us know if anything we can do!

Cheers,
James

Really Sad news. Ray is a top bloke and a top rate builder. Met him several times at the shows and his advice was invaluable in my build. Please tell him that he's in our thoughts this end.

Sorry to hear the illness has progressed further so quickly, now feeling sad myself for not making the effort to get down to see Ray and Yvonne before.

Thankyou Rob for posting this up, i would have trouble finding the right words as Ray is definitely one of top guys in our little group and a clever and talented one to boot.

My thoughts are with Ray Yvonne and the family.

Top bloke, I just hope he knows how much he is in all our thoughts. Best wishes to Yvonne, family and friends.
He will need good people to stay with him and I am sure he will not want for friends at this time!

Best regards
Jon.

Thats terrible news, ive never met Ray but i remember him replying to a post a while back basically saying he built every part of his car himself pretty much apart from the sierra donor bits, even moulding the fibreglass body panels.
What a talented guy & an inspiration to anyone building a car.
Our thoughts are with him, his family & friends.
