I had the honor of knowing and occasionally working with Chris. He was humorous and hard wording. Above all he was dedicated to the Lord. May your memories of Chris help you through this difficult time. God Bless.

Growing up in the same North Hill neighborhood, I remember playing games and riding bikes with about 15 others around the neighborhood. Chris was a fun guy to be around and he had many friends. He was one of the first kids in the neighborhood with a banana seat on his bike. Rest In Peace.
