    We say a temporary goodbye to a good man, evidenced by the many people who call him friend and a family who loved him so very much and he dearly loved. His children and grandchildren are his legacy he can be most proud of. For Chris his family was first and foremost followed by anyone he called friend. I can’t recall Chris ever knowing a stranger. Once he met someone saw any goodness you became a friend. That was virtually everyone because he tried to see the good in all. If you needed help or something he had he gladly offered it, Chris truly had a heart of gold. Looking at photos taken these last couple weeks you see a man who loved his family and friends with all his heart. of his children and beautiful little grandchildren I’m proud to call you friend Chris though it’s painful parting I know you knew The Lord and we will in God’s time say hello again.

    Great memories that will stick like yesterday. You, Mike, & Drew set up in your front yard across from the high school having a jam session. An instant party followed!
    The high school talent show with the 3 of you, smoke towers & smashing your guitar on a cinder block will always be remembered by anyone who saw it. Teachers freaked-students loved & cheered it! Rock on Brother, you’ll be missed.
