    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...

    Christian T. Richards “Chris_Agony” – Echo Base Oct. 11, 1978 – July 19, 2011 “Chris was a tremendously giving person – to his family, friends, and to the Legions (both 501st and Rebel respectfully). In July 2011, Chris passed quite suddenly. I never met him personally nor trooped with him, but his humor and exploits in Western PA are legendary. All of Garrison Carida and Echo Base mourn his passing.

    In Memorial – Nick Ring

    Nick Ring May 9 1986 – July 5 2008 Nick’s death came unexpectedly following an unforeseen complication after elective surgery. He was a very active member of the 501st and a huge Star Wars fan. He had boundless energy when it came to trooping and was always willing to go to any event he could attend. His skill at Star Wars Trivial Pursuit was legendary. In addition to his love of Star Wars he was a huge fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which easily reflected his own sense of humor. He also loved music, especially Pink Floyd, but his musical tastes covered the whole range from classic rock to modern electronica.

    In Memorial – Joe Price

    Joe “vampyregodz” Price – Ra Kura Base Joe “vampyregodz” Price, beloved husband of Sheila “Mara Pricestar” Price, passed away March 6, 2008. Joe was loved dearly by members of Ra Kura Base and the Florida Garrison of the 501st. He was loved so very much by everyone. Joe had been having several health issues for some time but was a true fighter and go getter. He always arranged and done many charity events despite his own health. He exemplified the true meaning of a trooper. At times he had to attend events by means of his powered scooter, just to do whatever it took to participate at events. In 2007, he even participated in SWW by means of his scooter. The man was truly admirable. Report Content Issue: * Blank Page Invalid Contents Broken Links Other Your Name: * Details: * Submit...
