  7. To my beautiful Christopher…I have had the gift of having you as a friend & colleague ❤️ You are an example to all of us how to live life. Your humor, selflessness, heartfelt kindness to everyone sets you apart from the rest. I will never forget the silliness at work when you pushed me on the back of the chair with my feet dangling. You brought us endless laughs. You are with Jesus now who I know you loved. There is no doubt you heard, “Job well done “

  8. I met you and Bea in 1995 at The Place. You both took me under your wing and gave me a new look on life. You protected me, taught me, and befriended me. I’m so glad we reconnected this past year and I got to see you and talk to you again. Love you my friend. There will be no other like you. Kind, gentle,tough,loving and caring. May you rest in peace

  9. The “light” that Chris brought into our lives at work will be missed, including his insightful competance, generous assistance, as well as his exuberant and playful personality.

  10. My heart,my soul hurts real bad. Knowing that when I come to visit my mom you will not be here.I will not hear your laughter ,your funny and sarcastic sense of humor. I will hold on to our memories that you have made. You had a love to live life and you did. Your love for your animal was beautiful. Will miss you tremendously my friend my brother. We will see each other again. Love you always mi Gordito.

  11. candleLeft the Wake, and he looked so peaceful, RIP
    What came to mind is most of us aspire to be helpful to our children and family, but this person has a legacy of helping so many and outside of family, without wanting anything in return and that makes him exceptional.
    And of course being funny and goofy makes Chris even more memorable. Very rare I have met someone so genuine and righteous.

  12. Chris you will be missed but never forgotten
    Having you as a friend, was like having an angel on Earth with me love you always🙏🇺🇸
