In Loving Memory of
Chris was a model professional and colleague, passionate about his role at Northrop Grumman and also a great friend to so many of us. He was also a dedicated family man and our thoughts are with them at this tragic time.
Some of you may have been aware of Chris’s career before Security. He served as an Officer in the Paratroop Regiment for 24 years serving in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Iraq and most notably in the Falklands campaign, where as a 19 year old lieutenant, just out of Sandhurst, he led his troop in a series of very notable engagements. Chris was recently interviewed by the BBC for a very powerful documentary on the Falklands War, detailing his experiences of the conflict. His heroism, dedication and the regard he had for the men he led and served alongside are palpable.
Chris lived life to the full. His passion for flying saw him compete in aerobatics competitions and displays across the UK. If we can take any solace from this tragedy it is that he died doing what he loved.
It was a privilege to know Chris and we will miss him deeply.
