Chris Johnson, the renowned dance caller, singer musician and morris man from Stafford UK is seriously ill in Stafford Hospital.
Though Chris has been poorly for some time, he still managed to get along to the odd session or two and has been delighting us with his singing and wonderful personality.

Please join me in wishing him a speedy recovery.

Just heard the very sad news that our Dear Friend Chris Johnson died last night. Chris had been quite ill for some time, but despite this, up till a couple of months ago, he was still singing and calling Dances. He was a big man in many ways and will be sorley missed by all who knew him in Stafford and the Midlands.

Details to follow.

Subject: Chris Johnson Funeral Details
From: GUEST,Silas

Hi Everyone.

The details for Chris' funeral arrangements have now been made and are as follows;

Tuesday 23rd February.

There will be a private family cremation, followed, at 12.30, by a Church service at Berkswich Methodist Church in commemoration and celebration of Chris's life.

We are all invited to the Church Service and Marg has asked if anyone has any memories or anecdotes regarding Chris and would like to relate them, they would be welcome to do so (Please bear in mind though that it is a church!) This will be followed by a reception at Walton Village Hall – musicians are welcome to bring instruments if they wish, I think it would be a nice way of sending Chris off on his Great Adventure with a little song and music.

No flowers, but donations are welcome to either St Katherine's House or to Berkswich Methodist Church.


Berkswich Church is located at the bottom of 'The Rise' at Walton on the Hill. Heading from Stafford on the Lichfield Road, it is on the right just before the Vauxhall Car Dealership. Post code for Sat Nav is ST17 0LH.

Walton Village Hall is located on Green Gore Lane which is about one third of a mile on the left as you head toward Lichfield from the Church (Look out for the Red Phone Box)
