My condolences to the family.
I had a couple of classes w/Chris at Milby. He could carry on a conversation about any subject. Very informed at 17/18 yrs. old.
He took pictures of High School activities,dances,our yearbook, things like that. In that, he rubbed elbows w/popular students,clics,etc., but never let "it" effect him. He always spoke,never high-browed, all the way to graduation.
To me it was obvious he just wanted to shoot pictures and that was where he could get lots of practice.
I hope your passing was quick and painless.
Anyway, I'll be seein ya.

Michael Hooper,
Class of 74
