Oh No! that's so very sad! Chris was one of the nicest, most genuine blokes to ever walk into CFB.
Rest easy big fella..


Such very sad news, a genuine gentleman, sincere condolences to Chris' family.


Always smiling.
Always stopping and saying hello how are you.
Always doing his best.
Always deadlifting heavy.
Always with us in spirit.
Goodbye Chris.
Love u

What a complete shock. My deepest condolences to the Twaddell Family. If there are any details that can be passed on to all at CFB it would be greatly appreciated - I would like to send flowers to the girls as I'm sure alot of people would.

Rest in peace Chris. You were such a genuine and lovely man. Sympathy and condolences to Annette, Sarah and the rest of the family.

Miss Me But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun has set for me;
I want no rites in a gloom filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little but not for too long,
And not with your head bowed low;
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me - but let me go.
For this journey is a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone;
It's all part of the Master plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart,
Go to the friends we know.
And busy your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me - but let me go.


One of the finest has just left us
what a great guy always a smile and gidday and positive presence
will miss him greatly he was a rock at CFB
Rest in Peace my friend
My deepest Sympathies to Annette and her family


With sadness I absorb the news. With love I extend wishes to his family.


this is truly sad news and my deepest sympathy goes to Annette, Sarah and their family. Chris will forever be cherished as one of the great givers and servers of the community. A true representative of the Old Dog spirit he brought an attitude that benefits every gym - never say never and find out a way to make it work. Vale.

Chris 'the Bobcat' Twaddell. A mans man. Kindness is what I'll remember from our short lived friendship (Chris looked out for me and helped me find work when I was made redundant last year). It was a pleasure training along side you mate. I hold close to me the dead lifting sessions, the post training coffees, the work we did together and your fatherly advice from a life lived well. Maximum respect to the man who wrestled bobcats. You'll be sorely missed old bloke.

Michelle E

So sad all the way from Perth. He was such a gentle giant and so genuine. Loved his smiles and just watching him in awe pushing his hardest during WODs. Lovely to have met such an amazing person.

Tim Harris

Chris big fella you'll be missed by all. Loved your company and can't imagine the loss you will be to your family.

Terry Taylor

I have just heard the terribly sad news of Chris's passing. Chris was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word. His honesty and integrity could never be questioned and in business he was always as good as his word. Rare in the world. He will not only be missed by his loving and always supportive wife Annette and his children but also by all of us who had the great privilege and pleasure of knowing him and doing business with him.
