Chris was a very sweet man. I’ve know him most of my life. We reconnected through his sister Kim some years ago and he has been my go to man for about 6 years, helping to fix almost anything in a moments notice. As my toilet is probably on the fritz, I need him once again. My heart breaks for his family. Sending love and prayers to all his siblings and his parents. What a gentle soul!

He was my Nieghbor growing up. We would play wiffle ball in our back yard, hitting home runs off the house. Later he became a friend and we would go bird watching. He became family as he would stop by my house to check on us while he was on his way to check on his mom. We hired him to do alot of work on our house and often, he wouldn’t except money so we would pay him with cookies, coca.cola and conversation. He would never “commit” to helping us build the sets for youth theater but he would be there every night and then he would slip away without drawing any attention to himself. Christopher was always shy, quite and gentle. I always chuckled because he would never call my dad, Pete, it was always Mr. Wlochowski but he felt that would be disrespectful to call him anything else. Christopher you may have been quiet and shy but the impact you’ve had on our family was anything but. I wish you were here right now because there’s one more thing we need you to fix, our broken hearts. Find peace my friend.

Chris, it is with a heavy heart that I write this. It was you and Steve Lynch that carried me through my adolescence, the toughest and most confused part of my life. I wish so much that I had another chance to spend time with you, all these years later. But I will at least rest easy knowing that you are at peace. For all of his closest friends and family today, my heart goes out to you. He was one in a million.

Till we meet again.

I am so sorry to hear this very sad news. Chris was such a good friend to my little brother Steve. He became more than just a friend, he became a part of our family. Steve, Chris, Peter, Juliet, and a few others. Always together, always laughing, always singing, and always goofing around. My heart was broken the day we said good bye to my little brother Steve, and now it aches again for Chris. To his family, I'm truly sorry for your loss. I will always remember him dancing around singing along with the stereo, shaking his head with his hair going in every direction as they all played their air guitars. So many good times and great memories! Chris, you will truly be missed, And now your with Steve. I know he will help you and show you your way.
Rest in peace!

It’s been a long time Chris my old friend ❤️. I never thought I would hear that your gone and left us for a better place🙏🏼. You will be missed dearly. I can not believe it.....
I remember that year when we were all inseparable. They were great times.
Whenever I hear the song “Angel Eyes” by Jeff Healey Band, I always think of you and remember you singing it. I hear “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen I see all of us headbanging in the car. We drove everywhere and anywhere listening to music or in Stephen’s basement.
And of course your favorite song back then “No Rain” by Blind Melon.
You were a part of a happy time in my life.
I will always remember the good times, your smile, good heart, and you singing “Angel Eyes”.

I will never forget. Rest In Peace. Sending you hugs up there. Wished I could have seen your smile again.

Love,

Juliet Paxi ❤️

Chris was like my oldest son. We were together for over 25 years. We became more than just friends. When I heard the news today, it hit me "like a ton of brick". I will miss him very much.

My deepest sympathy to his mom, sister, brother-in-law, nephews, nieces, Aunts, and Uncles.

Rest In Peace,

Love,

Brian and Family
