Christopher Frank Skinner
Chris Skinner died on 14 February on his 59th birthday at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, close to his home in Hethersett.
Chris had been in hospital since late December suffering from Guillain Barré syndrome and his sudden death was as a result of complications.
Chris moved to Norwich as a child with his parents, brother and sister and thereafter made Norfolk his home. He went to school in Norwich where he studied mathematics, physics and chemistry A levels before attending Nottingham University to read law. Following professional examinations Chris became a trainee solicitor at Norwich City Council. Chris had already taken up his great loves of swimming, cycling and running and his training contract was extended because of his insistence in running again too soon after suffering a broken ankle, not once, but twice.
