Chris was a very active person golfing, skiing, fishing, motorcycle riding, and walking. The thing he loved the most was spending time with the loves of his life, his niece Hattie and nephew Hayes. He was a kind man with a big smile and loved by all who knew him. No matter the situation he would say “it’s fine”.
