Goodbye Lawrence Jupp

I heard some tragically sad news today. A friend from my last place of work was killed on his motorcycle.

Lawrence Jupp was a truly nice bloke in every sense. I know this is a cliche but he was one of those rare individuals who didn?t have a bad word for anyone, for that alone he was well liked and respected by all.

He was trustworthy & friendly, with an adventurous and active streak that always put his pasty-faced IT friends to shame. I have fond memories of spending sunny evenings flying sports kites with him.

He had just returned from a round the world trip with his lovely girlfriend
Claire. I remember him enthusing to me about his travel plans just before he left - I was REALLY jealous of course, not because of where he was going but because he had the guts to just pull up his roots and GO. He had a real sense of adventure which was quite admirable. I was expecting him to pop up on messenger and tell me all about his trip around now. It is wrenching to think that he is gone. My thoughts are with his close friends and family.

Here's to Lawrence, a really nice guy!

Here are is the link to Lawrence's round the world trip photo album (some really professional shots in there, it seems he was a talented photographer too!)

Here is the link to his travel blog

Hi, We never met but this turned up in a google search for Lawrence.

As it happens I've just posted something myself so I won't repeat all that.

I agree - he was one of those uniquely friendly and happy people. I'll miss him a lot.

Hi Chris,

I also did a search and came up with the following. I feel it is a lovely tribute to Lawrence, who was a wonderful person.

I have lost a very good friend, but will always cherish the time we spent travelling together.

A few days before he was tragically taken from us, I emailed him to say how wonderful the pictures were on the blog. I went back and looked at every one. You are right he was a talented photographer.

Claire x
