I met Kris in school. He was always so full of life and was always so happy. Had the most amazing smile that would light up any room he was in. I had a rough time in school and he always made it his mission to cheer me up any chance he could. He was never part of any “click” or group in school. He loved everybody and everybody loved him.
A few years after graduation he called me out of the blue one day to catch up and see how I was doing. We talked for hours. About life. About how he was doing and what’s he’s been up to since school. I told him I was pregnant and how I was sad I was going to be a single parent and he had nothing but positive and supportive things to say. He told me he wanted to be successful and wanted to do big things in his life. Wanted to change the world.
I think he did. I know he had a positive impact on everybody whose ever had the pleasure of meeting him. Kris was a one of a kind soul. And we definitely lost an angel. And Heaven is lucky to have such an incredible soul up there. I miss you so much Kris.

I met kris in middle school and we were friends through high school. He had a smile that would light up a room. I remember his car in high school had t-tops and he would get so excited to show off his sweet ride. A truly amazing guy, he will be missed. My condolences to his family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sad to hear an old buddy passing. All them memories that I have of us when your grandma was working right next to my moms office there at Hanks running around the school while being the only kids there jumping off the bleachers onto the gymnastics big pads. May God bless your soul, and bring peace to your families hearts! Semper Fortis
