Chris was a hard worker since his teen years. He was a fast learner and became a very skilled carpenter at an early age and he and his father worked hard side-by-side for many years.
He was always full of life. Being with his family and many friends is who he enjoyed being around and he knew his quick wit would always put a smile on their faces and that’s what he was all about. Very funny, outgoing, caring, loving, kind and understanding made him the man he was. Chris always lived life first.
The memory that he leaves us with is his bright smile, sensitive eyes, and his humorous personality.
