Chris will be truly missed. We were so saddened by his passing. He was great friend and we thought of him as part of our family. He helped us build our last 2 houses - we will cherish those times, which were filled with many good times and fun. One special memory is: one day at lunch, Ben and Chris were sitting, having pizza up high on top of the lift on the side of the house, sitting under a bright colorful beach umbrella - it was quite a site to see coming down the street , it caused quite a few cars to slow down and stare. Our little dog (Kadie) will also be missing him - he always made a point to stop in to see her and she looked forward to Uncle Chris (as we called him to her) stopping in to pet her and give her treats.

My dad was a very special man. He taught me the love of animals and to appreciate the simple things in life. Dad, you will be missed by many and until we meet again, keep a close watch on the Wise Guys. Love always, your daughter. ♥️
