He was predeceased by his father Brian Cornwall of Salt Spring Island on August 18, 1998, his mother Eunice Of Toronto in 1982. Survived by his dear friend Ken McCreath of Vancouver, sister Gillian of Victoria, brothers Bruce of Nanaimo, Philip (Chantal) and his nephews Ben and Eric all of Prince Rupert. Also a stepsister Sheryl Miles Ross (Michael) of London, Ont., stepbrothers Mike Miles and Steve Miles and stepmother Louise Nye, all of Salt Spring Island.

Chris was born in England on August 31,1949, moving with his family to Canada as a young boy. He lived in Toronto, then Vancouver, where before retirement, he worked as secretary to Bob Bentall and was manager of the Vancouver Film School.

For over twenty years, Chris spent many happy times visiting the Island, attending family get-togethers at their underground house in Maracaibo near Nose Point and hiking the nearby trails.

A celebration of life took place on August 21 on the beach that overlooked Chris’s Vancouver apartment.

Donations in his memory to A Loving Spoonful or Qmunity, both in Vancouver, would be greatly appreciated.
