Chris Butler FICME

Monday, 29 January 2018

It is with sad regret that we announce the passing of Mr Chris Butler.

Chris passed away last Thursday, following a recurrence of his illness. Chris was a well-known character in the castings industry and was National President of ICME in 2000.

The funeral will be held at 1.30pm on Friday, February 16th, at;
Streetly Crematorium (West Chapel)
Little Hardwick Road

Following this there will be a wake in a pub, at Chris’s request:
The Whittington Arms,
Tamworth Road
Lichfield, WS14 9PS.

Chris asked that people do not wear black - “no black and no blarting" (crying in Black Country speak) - he wanted a ‘celebration, and for people to enjoy themselves’. Also, no flowers: anyone wishing to make a donation is invited to do so to St Giles Hospice or Cancer Research:

Chris’s son, Jeremy, has asked that if you are planning on attending, to please contact him direct by email so that the family will have some idea of the numbers of people they might expect. He can be contacted at jeremy@onewigwam.com
