Chris was a wonderful young man. Always ready with a smile and full of fun. He took the time to entertain is younger cousins when they visited and was very open and friendly with everyone. He was a pleasure to be around whenever we were with him. He will be remembered, always, with warmth and love. Aunt Pat and Uncle Dennis

Chris had such a charming and sincere smile that just made me feel good.
His sense of humor (many times with a little wink) was one of a kind. There weren't a lot, but the times I was around Chris I knew he loved his family and friends and he did his best to make everybody feel special and always thanked those helping him along the way. His love of God was in his smile and eyes and he is where he belongs, with God's arms wrapped around him.
The service for him today was very touching and I'm glad we were able to be there.

Chris was an outstanding student in my Introduction to Business Class at WSU. He was a delight with his sense of humor, his interest in improving and his personality. I will miss him.

Dear Tom and Family,
I am sorry about your loss.
While I didn't know Chris very well, I remember him as a personable and friendly guy who didn't quit, having already gone through some serious challenges in his life.
My prayers are with your family.
