Announcement - Chris Monk

It is with sadness that the RNRU reports the news of the sudden death of former RNRU player, Chris Monk.  Chris was out enjoying an evening run along the cycle path between Lympstone and Exmouth last Tuesday 31 May when he collapsed and, despite receiving first aid, could not be revived. 

Serving for 17 years as an Instructor Officer and Engineering Training Manager, Chris was capped twice for the RN in 1998, playing scrum-half in both Inter Service matches against the RAF and the Army.

His funeral will take place at 1.45pm on Friday 24 June at East Devon crematorium and will be followed by a celebration of Chris's life to be held at the Redwing pub in Lympstone from 4pm.  Friends who would like to contribute are asked to make a donation to the Mountain Way in lieu of flowers.  Funeral Directors R. Gegg 01395 222444 can assist with donations. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Lynn, daughter Emily and all Chris's family and friends at this time.
