    Chris will be missed by so many. He impacted those he met face-to-face and those he just spoke to over the phone one time. He always believed the good in someone before the bad. I am so happy my sister found him all those years ago and married him. He was hard to get close to at first, but once you learned what he was really all about you knew that you would always want him around, even when he was being an ASS!!! He knew how to be one of those too! But you loved that Chris too. RIP and I take comfort knowing you left this earth in the place you loved the most and that you are soaring high in heaven with your brothers and the rest of your family that you loved so dearly. Please remember to hug my Dad and don’t give my Mom to hard of a time, I don’t think she had as much patience for you as the rest of us did!!

    I remember the first time I met Chris. We were at a Rockies game, he looked at me and asked me if I drove a truck, rode a horse and went dancing? I’m from Texas, I told him I don’t do horses but yes I dance and drove a truck. 😂. I was only around him a couple of times but I loved his quiet humor. I’m heartbroken to here of his passing. Prayers to Barb, Aiden and the whole family who loved him deeply and dearly. Hugs from your Texas family. We love you.

    Barb, my heart goes out to you and your family. I have very fond memories of hanging out with you and Chris in the 90's. I am so glad I got to reconnect with both of you these last two years. My sincere condolences, Annie
