Chris was a lovely, kind person with a beautiful family whom he deeply loved. G Chandler Vaughan, January 27, 2019 I was very sorry and surprised to hear about Chris. Chris and I worked at BC/BS for 10+ years on the same project. Chris was a great friend and person. He will certainly be missed by many people. Chris's family will be in my thoughts and prayer. Jerry Wilson , January 26, 2019 I was shocked and saddened to hear that Chris passed away. He was always a pleasant coworker at HCSC and also a fun tennis teammate. He was dedicated to his family especially to his two daughters. My thoughts are with his family. I am sorry that I can not attend the service. I will miss Chris.
