I'm so sorry to read of Chris' passing. Chris and I were classmates first in elementary school at Herbert Gray. We played many pickup basketball games and football games with Ron Bubar and Mark Guay joining in either at a small lot on Veazie Street or at the high school fields. Chris was quite a quarterback and we had a lot of fun in those days. I last saw Chris about 15 years ago and we shared many old memories like it was yesterday. Time goes by quickly and takes many before their time. Rest in peace my friend.

We grew up right next door to Chris. Although he was younger, I have many fond memories of conversations on the lawn and playing various sports: basketball, bad mitton and pass with a baseball in the street, softball and T ball in our back yard, etc. Watched him grow up from a cute little boy to a man and a great father. So sorry to hear of his passing. Love and prayers to his family
