Chris was one of the best men I have ever worked with. A man of the highest integrity and one who I could count on to complete commitments on time. Always pleasant to be around. I had so much respect for Chris. Only the good die young. CHARLIE UHL, October 4, 2019 Forever in my Heart.

Another amazing man of my life earns his wings. May he watch over his family members from above. It was a pleasure to know this man and grow up knowing how much he loved life and his family. Nancy Koenig, May 6, 2019 Just like your two brothers, you were taken too soon. You will be greatly missed. We all have a lot of great memories from years past. Rest now with Gordon & Frank. You are together again. Leslie Adams, May 6, 2019
