James Chandler, son of John and Mary-Rose, husband to Shelly, father of Bella and Christian, brother of Marcus, Sophie and Hugo, and brother in law and friend to many, sadly passed away peacefully on Wednesday 30 December after and short but brave fight against cancer.
James and his family lived in St Francis for the last 8 years, where James ran an electrical contractor business.
He loved his family and friends dearly, and was always full of fun and laughter, especially with all the kids that loved and adored him.
His faith carried him and his family through the last trying months and days of his life. He will be terribly missed by his family and friends, but we wish that all will celebrate his life abundantly.
James’ funeral is on Wednesday 6 January at Walmer Methodist church in Main Rd Walmer, at 11:00.
An open celebratory service will be held on Saturday 9 January at 07:00 at Granny’s Pool / Huletts where James’ ashes will be taken and scattered into the surf.
All are welcome, just bring surfboards, boogie boards or anything that floats.
Many thanks to everyone that loved, cared and supported Shelly, James, Bella and Christian and the entire family so wonderfully through this difficult time.
The family requested that donations be made to Hospice in lieu of sending flowers.
