In Loving Memory of Christopher Wray (1958 – 2023)

Christopher Wray, a beloved husband, father, and adventurer, passed away on 15th June 2023. Born in 1958, Christopher lived a life full of love, passion, and a deep appreciation for the rugged beauty of the Scottish Highlands.

Christopher grew up in Edinburgh, where his fascination with the natural world began. As a young boy, he was captivated by the towering peaks and sweeping vistas of the Highlands. This love for the mountains stayed with him throughout his life, inspiring countless adventures and shaping his outlook on life.

In his twenties, Christopher met his soulmate, Anne, and they married in 1983. Their partnership was built on mutual love, respect, and shared passions. Together, they raised two wonderful children, Matthew and Sophie, instilling in them the values of exploration, resilience, and a deep appreciation for nature.

Christopher was not only a devoted family man but also a passionate mountaineer. His weekends and holidays were often spent traversing the majestic peaks of the Highlands, breathing in the crisp mountain air and marvelling at the breathtaking landscapes. He found solace and inspiration in the mountains, and his adventurous spirit led him to conquer some of Scotland’s most challenging climbs.

His love for mountaineering was more than just a personal passion; it was a way of life that he joyfully shared with his family and friends. Christopher often organized trips to the Highlands, guiding loved ones through the rugged terrain and sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm. His stories of adventure and his deep connection to the mountains inspired many to appreciate the beauty and challenges of the natural world.

Christopher’s professional life was marked by dedication and integrity. He worked as an environmental consultant, a career that perfectly aligned with his love for nature and his commitment to preserving it for future generations. His work was highly respected, and his contributions made a lasting impact on environmental conservation efforts in Scotland.

An interesting fact about Christopher was his role in the local mountaineering community. He was an active member of the Scottish Mountaineering Club, where he shared his expertise and passion with fellow enthusiasts. His contributions to the club and the broader mountaineering community were significant, and he was well-regarded for his knowledge, kindness, and adventurous spirit.

Christopher’s legacy is one of love, adventure, and a profound connection to the natural world. He touched the lives of many with his generous heart, his boundless enthusiasm for mountaineering, and his unwavering love for his family. His passing leaves a void that can never be filled, but his memory will continue to inspire those who knew him.

Christopher Wray is survived by his loving wife Anne, his children Matthew and Sophie, and his extended family. As we say goodbye, we remember the joy he brought into our lives, the adventures we shared, and the love he spread so freely.

Rest in peace, dear Christopher. Your love for the Scottish Highlands, and the spirit of adventure you embodied, will always be remembered.
