There is also a heartfelt farewell on this link : http://jaimecrandle.com. An excerpt is below, but please do click on the link as the family are asking for stories and pictures for Ruby.
Chris loved his rugby–playing, coaching, watching, and especially teaching Ruby. They often went to the pub together to watch games and he coached her on Sunday mornings. They had sooooo much fun together. I hope that his legacy lives on through Ruby. In rugby and in work, Chris was adored and respected and admired immensely. Everyone that played with him, was coached by him, worked with or for him always expressed that they are better people for having known Chris Venn. He was dedicated and disciplined and hyper-focused on doing the best–not to be the best, but to leave people, places, and things better than he found them.
