I am deeply saddened to hear this news Chuma had such great energy and we shared an incredible summer as neighbors that I will never forgot. He constantly made everyone laugh and forget about their problems. He made everything more fun. We spent the summer grilling, hanging out by the pool and playing shuffle board while he was in Chicago. There was never a dull moment with Chuma around. I am thankful for the great times and memories that we shared. To Chuma’s family- May the good memories you have carry you through this difficult time. I am so sorry for your loss.

Chuma was a good friend of ours. We knew him during his stay in the Coachella Valley. Our deepest condolences go out to his family.
We hope for an opportunity to speak with his family, if possible.

Chuma and I went to law school together and though we lost touch over the past tem years, I have never forgotten him or our friendship. Chuma was like a brother to me; we fought like crazy but there was never a mean-spirited word said between us. I'm grateful to have known him and called him my friend.

My deepest condolences to Chuma's lovely family and all of his friends. I'm truly sorry.

Two weeks since I heard the news about my "little bro" and still can’t believe it. I remember the day you were born, watching you crawl and walk, and, although separated by a few years, eventually running and riding bikes around the neighborhood together. Your move to Chicago and time here kept us close as adults and gave Tina and my kids a chance to spend quality time with Uncle Chuma, whether swimming at your pool, hanging out at our condo, or visiting and watching football up here in the burbs.
Memories of you just like that (see the cover photo with Spunky the dog) reflect who you were -- always gentle, cheerful, kind-hearted and absolutely one of a kind -- and will truly be a blessing.

Chums,
You are my best friend and brother. I will never get over losing you. I feel like your soul however is at peace which gives me comfort. I am praying for your Mom and brothers that they will have the strength to get through losing you. I have so many wonderful memories of you its hard to pick just one. I guess it would have to be being singing karaoke duets with you. You hated singing but you did it for me and you sang in the voice of Robert Gullet as played by Will Farrell. You are irreplaceable to me. Love you.
