As one of Chris' former teachers, I just want to express my sincerest condolences to his family. I remember Chris with fondness, as he was always such a polite and respectful young man. He was a good student, and it seemed he always had such a pleasant and friendly way about him. He was kind to others and seemed to always have a smile! Again, my sincerest condolences for your loss. Holding you close in thought and prayer, Tara Madden (Miss Henry)

I graduated with Chris. We were class of 2015 at IUE! We were a small group that grew pretty close. Although we had lost touch over the years, I am saddened by the news of his passing. He was extremely intelligent, funny and was always there for me when school and work overwhelmed me. He will be missed dearly! Sending prayers for comfort and strength to the family.

I was a classmate of Chris'. I was blessed to reconnect with him as our daughters were in the same class; I think almost all of elementary. I would watch him come to every parent function, and he always attended with Madison's mom, and her new man. I always knew Chris was an extraordinary man, but watching him and the way he handled a situation like that; just affirmed what a man of integrity he was!! I am so sorry for this family's great loss! I pray that God give you a comfort, and a peace which surpasses all understanding!!! May The Lord bless and keep each one of you!!!

When I first moved to Connersville and started my sophomore year at CHS, Chris was the first person to say hi to me and become my friend. Since high school Chris and I have been best friends and brothers. Whenever I needed a friend he was there, and I for him. We grew apart over the years and I deeply regret that now. I'm so sorry for your loss, he was a one in a million guy. If there is anything I can do for Chris's family please don't hesitate to let me know. Chris would do the same for me.

Chris was always like another big brother to me. He was always hanging out at our house, I remember us making breakfast at 2 a.m. and watching movies all night. I told him he HAD to teach me to play piano but we never got around to it. He was incredibly talented. His laugh and talent will be missed.
