Stephany and all of Chris’ loved ones: Please accept my sincere condolences. I know how hard Chris was fighting to stay with you.
I have fond memories of times spent in the Braido basement and at the cottage in Goulais. Chris was always so fun, kind and generous, an all around great guy! My prayers are with you at this difficult time. Rest in peace, Chris.

My sincere condolences to the entire Braido family. Most recently, I regularly ran into Chris at Metro or Dollarama in the Churchill plaza. LOL He was always quick to smile, say hello and ask about my Mom.
May Chris rest peacefully and guide you from above. Cherish every memory and keep his spirit alive through pictures, stories and all that you do. Keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.
With sympathy, Jamie-Lynn O'Neill

Braido family,
Chris was one of a kind; his loss will be felt by many. He was a warm individual who always had a kind word and a smile. We will never forget how hard he worked for the girl's soccer team and the parents as well. A truly kind and loving man. A wonderful legacy to leave his family.
Love, Rhonda and Kate

To Chris' family: Please accept our condolences on the loss of a great guy. His death will leave a void in the lives of many, we are sure. We used to golf and socialize with Chris back in the day at Soo Michigan Golf Club and always enjoyed his company.
Sincerely, Lee Campbell & Gary Burns
