Our deepest condolences go out to chrises' family and friends.
We have been chrises neighbor (2 doors down) and had a great relationship with him! Neighbors for 9 years.
Chris was always so friendly whether chatting over the fence, or chatting on our front porch or on his front porch!
He took so much pride in his front lawn!
He was always out there fixing up little dead spots! Always kept his place up so well!
He used to talk with me when he was getting ready to go boating with his friends, or quadding with his friends, and was always so excited for these outings! Also expressed his excitement when taking vacations!
This guy loved his dog dutchess so much! Never a doubt!
I sincerely hope that dutchess is in a great place right now, and being cared for the way Chris cared for her.
Rip Chris......
You were a great neighbor, and will be missed!

Being surrounded by a team of boys wasn't always awesome! Chris made it easier. He was kind when others weren't, cracked jokes instead of insults, and often lagged behind his teammates to make sure I was ok. He was a gentleman before we even knew what the word meant. I took it for granted at the time, but looking back, it must have taken a great deal of courage at that age, not to follow the crowd, to do the right thing.
I will never forget his kindness, humour, and sweet smile.
Debbie and Marty, I am so saddened for your loss. You guys really made a good one!

My sincerest condolences,
Justine (Jasmine ;-)

Chris was a great friend to my husband Brad Kelly, they started at Pepsi at the same time and continued a friendship throughout their career. Even shared the same birthday :-)
Chris would come for dinner some weekends and spend time with our kids as he was such a loving and caring person and treated you like family, as we were new to Alberta.
Chris will be missed very much, the last few days for Brad have been very hard as for most I am sure.
Brad will make sure he lives on at Pepsi and never forgotten
Much love to your family and prayers that you all will get through this difficult time.
Kelly Family.
