Chris Covins was an individual
- unique in his commitment to the needs of others, in
his perspective on life and in his extraordinary gift
for both the written and illustrative arts.
A respected doctor,
who spent many years working in different fields of the
medical profession, he enriched the lives of countless
patients and was admired by all those who were
privileged to be close to him.
Above all he was a
much loved son, brother and father, who offered
unstinting inspiration, friendship and love to his
family and two sons, for whom he wrote Coconia.
Sadly he never saw
his stories published, but it would have been totally in
keeping with his open and generous nature to share them
freely with others.
