    So many great memories with Chris and frankly all of you guys growing up in our teenage years and into our 20s and continuing on. Chris was a great friend always thought of Him and Shaun as brothers to me. Chris was good at just about any sport, he picked up. Played lots of softball and basketball and football with him and many others. He was an all-around great guy and I will miss him greatly! My deepest, heartfelt condolences and prayers are with all of his family and friends.
