My sincerest condolences go out to all of Chris's family and friends. Words cannot express how saddened I am to learn of his passing. He will never be forgotten and will live on within our cherished memories.

Chris became one of my closest friends after we met 6 years ago. I will forever be thankful that I got the chance to meet him. He never failed to make me laugh and was always there to cheer me up when I was feeling down. One of my favorite memories I have of him is when one day were joking around and he referred to me as "McRacecarTyre."

I met Chris during my freshman year in high school. Sitting at the same table during lunch for 4 years and traveling to various locations such as the Washington DC and Boston trips brought us really close as friends. Through Chris, I truly learned the values of kindness, acceptance, and sincerity. His infectious smile and positive attitude always brightened my mood and he would always challenge me to do and be better every day.

Chris always strived to make the lives of the people surrounding him more engaging and joyful. To this day, I follow his method of properly eating a Nature Valley crunchy granola bar without having to make a mess (break the bars first into four smaller pieces and then open the wrapper for no spilled crumbs). Some of my favorite moments with him was trying seaweed for the first time during International night and harmonizing to Bruno Mars songs during science lab and on the bus. His passion for origami and learning about different cultures was extremely admirable and amusing to watch. Also, Chris singing Bollywood songs and pronouncing most of the words in Hindi fluently made me realize how accepting and loving he was.

To the Loring family, please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of a beautiful son and loving brother. My heart breaks for you. I pray for your strength and hope you find comfort in knowing how many lives Chris has touched and made better. I will never forget him.

My deepest condolences to Chris’s family. Chris was one of my closest friends in high school and we stayed in touch at UCONN. We shared the struggles of our engineering classes and shared the great memories we made in high school. Chris knew how to cheer me up, when something was wrong or when I just needed someone to be there for me. He taught me how to eat Goldfish properly and brightened the room with his contagious laughs, illuminating smiles and his warm kindness. He will forever be remembered, lots of love and Rest In Peace my friend.

Der Family and Friends- I send you my deepest condolences. No doubt nothing anyone can say can touch your loss and your grief, but I still wanted to let you know that as his Professor in two sociology classes this past semester at UCONN I enjoyed working with Chris and found him to be very a intelligent, thoughtful and reflective young man. I hope your memories bring you some comfort in this terrible time and that one day there will be some healing in some capacity for you all.

My deepest condolences to all of Chris' family and friends. He touched so many people, always without any expectations of a return.

I distinctly remember the first time I met Chris on the fifth floor of our college freshman dorm. Coincidentally running into each other by the elevators, we realized we were in the same chemistry class, and quickly shared a laugh about the course. He then asked me if I wanted to attend lecture together and be lab partners.

Little did he know, his simple invite meant a lot to me. I knew few people at the time, and his friendly, inclusive attitude taught me that just a couple words separate friends from strangers. It demonstrated the essence of how the little things can go a long way, and the uplifting impact extending a hand can have on others.

Through the rest of our interactions in college, he never strayed from this demeanor. That's just who he was. Moments with Chris were happy, exciting, caring, and always shared, never exclusive. I am so heartwarmed to have made new, recent memories this year.

I will always remember our car ride back from Boston bumping Juice Wrld's most recent album. Legends Never Die.

I met Chris at camp Woodstock a few years ago at a time in my life where I did not have much direction, and being thrown into a new environment i did not have many friends. Chris was one of the first people to stick a hand out to me and make an effort to bring me into a community that i had no idea about. Chris always had a bright smile on his face and was never negative. He took each day as a blessing and faced the world with one big smile.
