    I will miss Chris the rest of my life. A dad could not ask for a better son-in-law. He worked his way up to project manager from a very meager start. May God hold him in the palm of his hand and give him peace.

    Morgan, Reagan and family. You are in our thoughts and prayers. God bought us together during sad times before this but I will forever be grateful to have met Chris and you and Catie! You are so special! Prayers for his peace and grace and strength in the days ahead for you all🙏

    Morgan, Reagan, and Catie: Words can’t express the heartache and sadness. When Chris began dating Morgan years ago I knew that he was a very special part of her world. From engagement, then marriage, and then the birth of Reagan I saw a little family grow with love. Chris put his heart into everything he did. He lit up each time Reagan said “Daddy”! He will always have a special place in my heart for loving and caring for both my daughter and granddaughter. Love you always and forever…

    I was so very sorry to hear about Chris. I worked with him for years. One of my favorite things to do was to sneak up on him in the morning and give him a hug, he would always laugh and tell me to get the heck off of him, but we both knew he loved it. Well…maybe I just did. My deepest condolences to his family, he will be greatly missed!
