Thanks for always letting me tag along with you and Aimee. You always made me feel welcomed, and supported. Those were some of the best times of my life. I looked forward to Friday and Saturday nights and the time flew by so fast. I thought you were so cool in that Bronco. Especially when you would peel it in our dirt driveway. I remember you being so funny too, and always up for a laugh. And your taste in music - we were eye-to-eye on that. I’ll miss you Chris. Your legacy won’t die.

Ahh Woody, I sit here and look at this photo of you and reflect on so many memories and good times together. You were one of the first friends I met when I moved to Castle Rock from Aurora in 1985. Our instant connection through music is what sealed the deal on our friendship. I remember we wanted to start a band, I had a guitar and somehow you and Dave both for some reason thought I was of a Eddie Van Halen caliber guitarist. Dave was nervous to get together, but when we finally did you both found out I didn’t know how to play very well at all. We in fact did make that band a reality (ButtScum) and drank beer and had many good times together. I am saddened to hear of your passing my friend! I wish we could have had that last laugh and cold beer together. You are forever in my mind Chris, and I Thank You for being that friend. Until we meet again.

Man Chris. You made such an impression on me.

So many bands you introduced me to....Black Crowes, White Stripes, Tesla, Queensryche, Dangerous Toys, Warlock Pinchers, Van Halen, AC/DC...I remember you and the thousands of concerts we went to.

You had amazing taste in music.

And the Bronco....that thing was a beast! Quite the Jeep Eater ;)

The time you rolled it on I-25 and walked away... the time at the jumpsite when the police let us go if we could make it over the hill, the many times you stranded the Bronco in the mud, playing so many games of Spades with Kim and Rick, the time you were stabbed while waiting in line for Scorpions tickets...and survived again.

Too many memories - you were a great sport - and you lived a lot.

More than everything, I remember your sarcastic wit and how you made people laugh at the world. You will be missed by many Chris - thanks for making those times so memorable.

Christopher, Every Fall when I head back from Montana, I look forward to seeing you, Dave and Joe, pulling out the guitars, hanging out and catching up on life. This time I didn’t make that effort and figured there would be a “next time” Life is to short to wait for “next time”. I will miss you, however when we meet again, have your drums ready because I’m bringing the bass with me. Haha...

Chris, it’s been so long since we last spoke or anything. You were always a brother, you took all friendships a little closer than anyone else, everyone was special to you. I’m so sorry to hear that we lost you, at least I have all those crazy memories I can crack up and giggle to! Peace out my brother, I’ll see you on the other side of the clearing at the end of the path.

No matter where we were at it was always fun with you Chris. Your laugh I can just hear right now. Never a dull moment with you for sure. There was always a funny going on. Especially at Khakis. There's not enough paper in the world to write the books about the khakis days. ~If the walls could Talk~ lol!!! Always had fun with you Brother Chris. I love your Family, I just Send my love and healing to all of your family and friends. And I am going to live your legacy of just having fun. That's what its really supposed to be about for sure.

Dave, Kathy & Family
You have my deepest heartfelt sympathy.
This is the only picture I have of Woody and he was part of some very wonderful memories at Khakis when we were all kids going into the work world and learning what this life was all about!
I will always remember Chris’s smile and his kindness.
