To the most inspirational person I have met thus far in this lifetime. We already miss you so much but it eases my mind to know... you are up there playing plenty of tennis!!! You will never know how many lives you have touched. Much, much love from all of the DuPrees...

There is nothing I can state here that will change anyone's opinion of Chris; we all know he was... awesome. Just plain awesome. Another mutual friend of ours always called him "a good dude," and that simple accolade is the best way to say it. I've had the pleasure of knowing Chris for over 15 years, and for the past 5 made continued treks to Atlanta just to hang out with him. Sadly, our Christmas plans never happened, and I will forever miss having that one more eclectic meal with him (seriously, the man ALWAYS knew the best places to eat and drink anywhere in the world). The last time I saw him, despite everything life had tossed at him, he was all smiles and laughs.... the last time we talked on the phone, just a few weeks ago, he was all jokes. Chris always skipped over his ailments and wanted to see how YOU were doing. If we all had half the strength, caring, and courage of Cadogan, the world would be a better place. I miss you, Wild Man.

Chris and I have known each other for over 20 years. There are too many memories and stories to put into words. But what most stand out when I think about Chris is what an incredible human being he always was. No matter what, he was incredible. You are already missed and heaven has just been blessed with a beautiful soul.

We've known each other professionally and personally over the last 7 years. I remember we spent a night celebrating a good year and seeing a famous DJ in Buckhead! He's a fun, jovial person to be around with. He will be missed. May you rest in peace. -Brian

Wow. What a fighter. He never quit fighting. Chris’ story is a true American success story. He worked harder than anyone I have ever known, he loved his family and he was an unbelievable friend.

Chris never met a stranger I will cherish his friendship and fully believe he is working on a deal for a souped up SUV for St Peter

I met Chris in 1991 at a Car Show here in Atlanta and we have been great friends since. He helped me with the lease on my first car. We played tennis on occasion and he had quite the blistering forehand. I met some great people because of Chris include the Great Hank Aaron. Chris was one of a kind. He was always upbeat even when he was facing the lowest points in his life. I had the opportunity to celebrate my 50th birthday just a year ago which was a great evening. I last spoke with him around Thanksgiving and wished I could have heard his voice one last time. I will so dearly miss Chris. Thank you Chris and until we meet again!
