Even though I did not know Chris very long. Working with him here in Enid as our "go to guy" for I.T. issues, he was always upbeat, and willing to do whatever we asked. He and I shared good conversations about our faith, music, cars and motorcycles! His smile was a winner, and he always encouraged those he worked with a positive attitude and his sense of humor that made me smile even at the most ridiculous work place drama! He will be missed, by those of us that got to know him as a co-worker and friend.

I'm sorry not to be there in person with you. I'm sorry for all of our loss. Although my recent memories of Chris came mostly over a screen, I was always happy to see him smiling and doing well, and in particular to see him so often in the company of people he clearly loved, who also clearly love him in return. My thoughts are with all of you, sharing your grief, and hopefully some happy memories of my cousin, whom we have lost far, far too soon.
