I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I went to MidContinent University with Chris. He was always Smiling and a positive influence. He enjoyed the outdoors. We have lost a dear friend and a wonderful and honest person. My prayers are with you.

My family knew Chris from the ice cream shop in Bellaire. We celebrated my son’s birthday there which included his grandparents. Chris was always cheerful and added to the joy of our visits to his store. God Bless.

I am saddened to hear that Chris has passed. I was Chris’s supervisor at ACRT for two years. It only took about two minutes to see the quality it in Chris. He was a great employee but an even better friend. I will miss our conversations. May God bless you all and bring you peace!

To Chris’s family , I was sorry to learn of the passing of Chris. Bud and Nancy were lifelong friends of ours and I can remember when Chris was a kid hanging around the insurance office in Bellaire. Nancy worked in my office until she retired in her later years and that was the last time I spoke with your father but I followed him on Facebook and saw the pictures of all of you and the grandkids. I hope all those fond memories you have of your Dad will help ease the pain of your loss. He was a very nice person, may God hold you and he in the palm of his hand

Chris was my best friend for many years in high school and college. I remember meeting him at his ice cream shop in Bellaire and all the fun times we had.
My heart is crushed and my prayers are with Sarah and Abigail. Your daddy was a true man!

My memories of Chris were when he was a kid. His Uncle Bucky lived next door and he used to visit pretty often. I just wanted to give the family my sympathy.
