From a Westlake/Eanes Family in Lost Creek: I believe Chris sometimes stepped in to patrol our neighborhood. We so deeply appreciate the service of all Travis County Sheriff's Deputies, and Chris, a Westlake grad, was even more one of our own. He will be deeply missed. Our profound condolences to his family and to his Travis County Sheriff's Deputy family as well. I spoke to one of his colleagues about the sorrow and loss they are feeling, and he will be remembered always. In these times of trouble especially, we appreciate your sacrifices and lean on your strength; please lean on our community now.

Chris was one of my good friends in childhood. We were in Boy Scouts together and often went Trick-or-Treating on Halloween. We lost touch in adulthood, but I will also remember him as a kind and funny person, and a good friend. So sorry to hear of his loss, he will be greatly missed.

Korzilius played a huge part in who I am as a deputy today. He was a great trainer and even better human being. God bless you and your family.

I just want to say my prayers are with the family. I didn't know Christopher, but I have a 32 yr old son. I can't imagine the loss. May Jesus bring you comfort.
