I will always remember looking out from the stage at 18th st pier and seeing Chris and Pam rocking along with me when my bands played. He was at every show I did there without fail. When I’d get off stage we’d always share a beer and he’d show me pictures of his drum kit as we talked about music. He had such a passion for it. I will always cherish those conversations and am thankful for the time I got to spend with him.
You’ll be missed Chris really will.

Hey Ol man...... I've called and left voicemails, I know they won't be returned. I haven't much to say outside of I love you. I will share all I know with anyone who asks. I felt you in your chair, Damian and Aaron looks just like you and I look like your dad, a trait that wouldn't have been passed down without you. I will see you again, and we will laugh and share a drink together, you coors light and me a revelstoke. Until then, see you later and I love you.

7 short years I’ve known you Shaw but they were 7 years full of good memories. I’ve spent half my safety career under your wing learning the ropes and there was always a sense of security in your words of advice. But the talks about family life were the most memorable. I’m going to miss getting a phone call at Christmas and New Years to make sure the family and I are ok. You will be missed my friend.

I will always remember saying good morning to Shawbert.
"Good Mornin', Chris."
Shaw: "What's so damn good about it?"
Always ornery but a heart of gold. Miss you already, brother. RIP.

So many memories, too many for this page. Since you came into my life when I was 3 you have been my dad. You gave me guidance, kindness, and a great taste in music. I miss you bunches. You will always be my dad and I will always love you.

I’ve known Chris for 9 years and what started off as short conversations of me venting about moron drivers, transitioned into happier talks about hard rock music and college basketball and eventually into meaningful talks about life and love. He wasn’t just a coworker or colleague, he was my good friend and knowing him led me to another treasured friend, his beloved Pam. I’m grateful for the time we had together and for the memories that will forever make me smile.

Will miss you Chris. I was only able to get you out the garage a couple of times, but the fun we had together in your garage I will always cherish. Jamming out, listening to new an old music, talking about our issues in life. Now your up there meeting all the rock legends. Wish we could have had more memories together....

Known you for 8 years Shaw. You were a hard man....fair, caring, funny and full of piss and vinegar. Say it like it is kinda guy. I will truly miss working with you and our conversations on work and mostly life. That's the side of Shaw I know and will miss very much.

Catching him smiling for the camera was difficult. So happy I have this one to share with the world. We were waiting for Houston Open Air to start but they ended up cancelling the concert. We still had a great time. I love this old man!
