It was a privilege to have worked with and for Chris. As executive assistant to the CEO, I have seen my fair share of office politics and executive posturing. Chris rises above and has always been steady in his course of humility and grace. Always smiling and pleasant and never arrogant. I have always appreciated his down to earth demeanor and will miss him dearly.

Chris was a remarkable person. Having worked with him for a few years at Panasonic I got to see what an outstanding individual he was. I was fortunate to have him as a boss and was part of the Product Planning team. He always took the time to share with me the knowledge he had about the industry and he showed interest in my future goals and family life. We talked sports a lot too. Chris was always the brightest in the room not only in knowledge but in his outgoing spirit as well. It was clear to me that family came first to him and that is a lesson I have learned to follow. He will be missed greatly by so many people that he has come in contact with. I know that every time I came away from spending time with him, I was not only smarter but also happier. He had that kind of affect on me and on many others. Memories I have of him will live on forever with me.

My deepest condolences to the Lundquist family in this difficult time. Chris was a great person, genuine leader, and a friend. I will never forget the time when he had me and my children fly out to spend time with him at a Panthers Seahawks game. It was the first trip to the West coast for my children, we had an unforgettable weekend, and he was such a gracious host. We enjoyed returning the favor and spending time with him in Charlotte when the Seahawks came to town. He was a force for positive change in the aviation industry, someone whose opinion I deeply respected, and he will be greatly missed.
