Chris Belcher

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Chris Belcher on January 16, 2019, at Grand River Hospital. Our condolences go out to wife Mary and the family. Chris and Mary have been members of the club for a very long time. First he sailed a Laser II, then more recently a smaller boat, a Feva. He was kind enough to lend the Laser II to a junior who needed to take a boat to an advanced sailing course at Geneva Park. He sailed mainly alone and didn't race. Al Morgan remember that he was often capsizing in his Laser. Al left his watch safely ashore when Chris once asked him to sail with him. Just as well - they capsized!!
Family and friends may visit at Westmount Memorial Celebration Centre, 1001 Ottawa St. Kitchener on Friday, January 25 from 1-2 pm with a memorial service at 2 pm. Donations may be made to the Grand River Hospital Cancer Centre. To leave an online message of condolence, please visit
