Always smiling. Always uplifting. Always positive. Always caring about others. I had the privilege of knowing Chris through work for the past 15 years and he was just the nicest guy - someone you'd be proud to have as a friend. I will miss our short chats about our work experiences. When Chris told me about his treatments and how glad he was to be back to work, it helped.me realize that anything is possible when you have determination and don't give up. Chris will live on in our hearts and memories. My sincere condolences to Chris's family and friends.

Although we didn't directly work together, I remember the interactions I had with Chris regarding work and life in general, simply as colleagues who sat near each other. When he returned to work a few months ago, he greeted people smilingly as always, although he was honest and dignified about what he was going through, and optimistic about getting past it . His presence will be greatly missed. My deepest condolences to Chris' family and friends.

I got the privilege to work with Chris for only a year, but in that time I found Chris to be very loyal, open and friendly, always looking for solutions to problems, and unafraid to take on the most difficult challenges.

He fought his illness with great courage and dignity, and always saw the glass as half-full, planning for the day when he would put it all behind him and return to work.

I remember sitting in his Chris' back yard sharing 'war' stories and listening to detailed description of his treatment, he had gained an encyclopedic knowledge of procedures and medication. Despite the daunting and stark options, Chris made difficult decisions when most would have given up, he put his faith in the hands of his medical team and bravely faced down his illness.

I was delighted when he told me on 4th July that he had just returned to work, he was very proud of his achievement. I was so looking forward to meeting with Chris on my next visit to LA, it is with great sadness that I will not get that opportunity

To Chris' family and friends I extend my heartfelt condolences, we have lost a great father, son, siblling, colleague and friend. May he rest in eternal peace.
