In Memorial – Mike Bailey

It is with a heavy heart that we need to add one more to our Fallen Rebel page. Mike “ukchewbacca” Bailey of Elstree Base, passed away this past weekend. Michael joined Elstree in 2010 with his Chewbacca costume and I had the pleasure of meeting him at Legoland 2011. He was a lovely, friendly man with no airs and graces and a pleasure to troop with. He was certainly a hit with the crowds who flocked to see him in his Chewie.  He was a well-liked and respected member of the costuming community in the UK and he will be sorely missed. – Suzi Stelling (suzijedi), Base Commanding Officer We only got to know you for a short while You made us all laugh with your true wookiee style Trooping with you has been a great pleasure with moments & memories we shall always treasure forever. With each wookiee grunt & each wookiee roar a huge hit with the kids who would come back for more. Be it large event or small, you gave it hundred percent you gave it your all. So rest in peace our good friend one thing is for sure you will be missed at Rebel Legion by one & all. – Chantal Freeman (adi gallia), Elstree Base Membership Officer “My friends love Chewie, my family love Chewie, and because he “makes the difference” to so many people lives through raising money for charity, the guy has a big place in my heart too.” – Mike Bailey I think this sums up Mike. A true gent and great trooper. RIP Mike. Sleep well ukchewbacca. – Beth Gourlay (sumbe foret), Elstree Base PR Officer Mike “ukchewbacca” Bailey Elstree Base 1975-2012 Report Content Issue: * Blank Page Invalid Contents Broken Links Other Your Name: * Details: * Submit...

In Memorial – Ryan Jones

Ryan “JediAgent” Jones passed away October 19, 2011 after suffering a cardiac arrest. Ryan was an active member in both the Rebel and 501st Legions. His heart always focused on charity, even when tough times affected his own life. He was a brilliantly talented fiddler, as well as Doctor Who costumer. Ryan not only physically resembled the Tenth Doctor, but his heart and soul mimicked the time traveler’s own. Like the Doctor, Ryan touched the lives of hundreds, if only even for a second. He leaves behind a community who will always feel the absence of the bright spark with which he lived his life. Donations can be made in Ryan’s honor to several charities, including the ASPCA and Make-A-Wish Foundation. “He will always be remembered as someone who could spontaneously make a room fill with happiness.” – RL member George Starkey Report Content Issue: * Blank Page Invalid Contents Broken Links Other Your Name: * Details: * Submit...
