Nancy, Bob, and Kerry.......I am so sorry about Chris. Way too young and too soon. I remember when we'd go up to your house on Christmas Eve when we were kids and I'd go up to Chris's room with him and listen to him talk to random truckers on his CB radio! I thought it was so cool and funny how he just pretended like he was one of them. He had his own handle and everything that they all knew him by! This makes me wish that our family was closer again we saw each other more like we did when we were young. We are thinking of you. Love you guys.

I’m so sorry to hear of this sad news. I have not seen Chris since he was a young boy, probably at his Aunt Bonnie’s home. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and sincere wishes for healing with time.

My brother was always the outgoing one when we were kids. I was super shy but he would talk to anyone. A lot of my good memories and friends I made are due to him. I loved taking him with me when I had my license cuz it was so easy for him to just walk up to people and become friends instantly. I had some of my best nights with him. I sure will miss those times so much. He was a good brother to me. Always would do what he could to help. I love ❤️ you so much and will miss you. Hope you are happy where you are my brother. I always just wanted to see you smile and be happy.

Chris was always quiet and shy. He had a warm smile and kind eyes. He always seemed to enjoy playing with the younger kids. He was a bit of a trickster! I wish I had gotten to know him better! He will surely be missed by his loving family❤️
