Although Chris found considerable professional success, his legacy will always be his family and the relationships he took the time to nurture with the people he knew. He was selfless and lived life with integrity, making the most of every opportunity he was given. Chris had a strong belief in himself and had a gift for bringing out the best in others. He was a loving and compassionate husband and father, loyal friend, superb cook, a master at home improvement projects, and was the type of person who made things happen. Chris loved to tell stories and added a sparkle to the lives of those who knew him. His passions included history, classic American and British tv/film, nostalgic British cars, and all things James Bond. He will be missed immensely and never forgotten by those who knew and loved him.
