Tragedy as young branch manager dies from Coronavirus

A young Kent estate agent has died after contracting Covid 19 at the age of 28. 

Chris Cane was branch manager of Wards estate agents in Birchington and local media reports suggest that he leaves behind his partner Shanice, and daughters Ava and Daisy.

Shanice is expecting their third child, due in January.


Chris’s family has set up a Gofundme page on which his brother in law Luke Coleman says: "Chris tragically passed away on November 11 at the young age of 28 after contracting Covid-19.

"Chris was much loved, both in his professional life and amongst his circle of friends. Since his passing, the amount of grief people have felt is truly profound, which is a testament to the amazing person Chris was.

"Chris was a hard working family man who went from a trainee estate agent to branch manager in less than five years, which just goes to show his hard work and commitment to his girls. Chris was always willing to help others and nothing was too big of an ask for him, he was truly a great man.

"We miss him enormously.”

The funding page is to raise money towards Chris’s funeral and his family. 

The appeal has already raised more than £11,500 and you can donate here

Estate Agent Today sends its condolences to Chris’s family, colleagues and friends.
