Subject: RE: 2015 Obit: Jasper King (The Chipolatas)
I first met Jasper at Brathay Hall near Ambleside when he volunteered to work with youth groups there as a 17 year old in the late 1980's. I was struck then by his maturity and sense of fun. He was a real asset to the courses he helped with and the groups loved him. Later i saw him perform with the Fairly Famous Family and the chipolatas. What a superb engaging performer he was. My kids thought he was great and he always made the whole family laugh. At one performance he spotted me in the crowd and dragged my son out to join in with the act. We all still remember that to this day.
My whole family feel deeply saddend to hear of his death and its a tragic loss to everyone. My family's thoughts and good wishes go to Jasper and all his family and friends. He will live on in our memories and I'm sure there are many who feel the same way even if they don't comment on it.
