Chris was a generous, kind and considerate person -- always willing to go the extra mile to help someone in need. He lived life fully, making many friends along the way.

The one thing we miss most is the love Chris had for his family. He was a devoted daddy to his children, Shelly, Andrew and Anthony. A loving son to his mom, Pat; a caring brother to his sister, Misty; and a special nephew to his uncle, Earl and (Brendo) and to all his friends he was lovingly known as (Burger).

To those of who loved him so dearly, he leaves behind an emptiness in our hearts that can never be filled. But the joy he brought to each of us will always be one of the greatest blessings we will ever know.
