Loved by everyone he met, Chris had a beautiful soul. Respectful, polite, and a true gentleman, he was the epitome of what a man is supposed to be. He was a devoted father who adored his 3 girls and instilled in them the same respect he was raised with. Chris was determined and wanted the best out of everything in life. He was destined to be great.
