    Chris was very skilled in a lot of different trades and was always the neighboring helping hand. Chris had a heart of gold and always put others first. He was so easy to get along with and loved his family. Chris spent a lot of time with his granddaughter, Mia and they always alternated painting each other’s fingers and toes. Chris was the rock of his family.
