To say that Chris was loved by all would be stating the obvious; and to say that Chris loved his family would be an understatement. There was nothing he held closer to his heart than the ones he loved, especially his 3 children. Chris will remain in our memories, just as he lived; young, wild and free. Your loved ones will forever miss you.
No memorial has been scheduled at this time. A Celebration of Life will be planned at a later date back in his home state of North Carolina.
