Chris was my neighbor when our families were just starting out. We traded fatherhood experiences as young Dad’s. Chis was a quiet hero to his kids and mine. Of late, he gave my kids encouragement in their new career and study successes. I am thankful for our time with Chris. May you rest and peace, Chris. My sincere sympathy goes out to Patti, Justin, and Brittany. Steven

I met Chris back in the late 70’s driving cab in fort mac, the games we played on each other, the pranks, the racing around with the cars, there was a ice track down on the snye that we took the cabs and raced around the track at 3am in the morning then along came Patti and her mom driving cab, well it wasn long until there was a marriage in 1982 and the rest I guess is history. I will miss you terribly my condolences go out to Patti and the rest of the family, GOD SPEED MY DEAR FRIEND!!!

I met Chris and Patti years ago when they so graciously offered to babysit my two girls while I worked. Chris was like a dad to my girls and they loved both him and Patti so much and still do. Chris was a very good friend, always helping others, always had a smile for everyone no matter if he knew you or not. He will be missed by my family and I know by so many more. RIP my friend – will always remember and love you!!!!

Chris was one of the nicest, most unassuming people I have ever met. He was a very devoted husband and father. It saddens me beyond words that you have to carry on without him, but thank God that you had him in your lives for so many years. My heart and my prayers go out to you Patti, Justin and Brittany.
