My sincere sympathies to Jeanette, Beth, Peter and the Burger family. Chris was a great guy and will definitely be missed at our family gatherings. His sense of humor with that twist of sarcasm was always enjoyed. Godspeed on your final Journey Chris!

I shall miss my friend Chris. Good motorcycle rides, good coffee, good camping, good food, good dogs, and a good friend...

Jeanette & family and Beth, Peter & family: I would like to express my sincere condolences with Chris's passing. I really enjoyed our get together these past few years for birthdays, parties, etc. I enjoyed his sarcastic personally which I'm sure he inherited from the Wenzel side of the family. Prayers to your families for continued healing during this difficult time. Love, your cousin, Suzie
