Chris was a talented artist with a creative mind, a skillful soccer player, lover of animals, and an expert floor layer but above all he was a devoted husband and father. Chris had a diverse love for music, was adventurous, had a great sense of humor, loved to make others laugh and could make the best gooey butter cake. He was extremely proud of his family and loved them with his whole heart.
It truly would be an understatement to say he will be greatly missed. He will forever be in our hearts.
