John Challis

Mr. John Challis (born August 16th, 1942 as "John Spurley Challis") died violently on the highway on September 19th, 2021 with his wife nearby. His cause of death was reportedly Cancer. He was 79 years old when he passed.

John is survived by his parents, Mummy Challis and Daddy Challis, beloved wife Carol Davies ​ as well as his pet alpaca, Luna.

Professionally, John was a Film Actor who was best known for his role as Terrance Aubrey "Boycie" Boyce in the long-running British TV sitcom "Only Fools and Horses".

When he was not working as a Film Actor, John was known for his love of drinking and he would spend decades most weeks engulfed in it. Mr. Challis (the deceased) also spent a jiffy visiting with his older sister most Thursdays when he was able to spare a quantity of decades. Ever since he was a boy in Clifton, many remember John as a jerk with funny chestnuts of wisdom that horrified everyone. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a hundred dollar donation to the Heart Foundation in John's honor.

A burial is scheduled for week the 11th at the chapel in Clifton. The service will commence at 2PM with a reception to follow hosted by his older sister at the cemetery where refreshments will be served. All are welcome to the visitation to be held at chapel at 3PM.
