CR was a friend and life coach to everyone that met him. I only directly worked with him for about 5 years, but it made a lifelong friendship. I remember of some conversations with him considering the latest Dilbert’ish situations that normally arise in the workplace, followed by a logical solution. His final assessment was often “but that is not how people think,” followed by chuckle or laughter. That always put the situation in perspective. He will be missed by all that knew him. I hope the best for his family. Paul McFarland , June 10, 2021 It was an absolute honor and privilege to know and love your dad. He was such a huge part of my childhood, and this news was so sad to hear. I will be thinking of all of you in the days and weeks to come. Prayers for peace and gratefulness for a life well lived. XO, Mallory Mallory McCord Batio, June 10, 2021 CR was and is a wonderful friend. Although he is absent from his earthly body, he is present with the Lord which is promised in 2nd Corinthians 5, 8 for those who know the Lord. We know that one day CR will be there to great us and reunite our friendship and this gives us comfort. He loved the Lord, his family and friends and lived life to the fullest. He will be missed by us and all of his friends. Dan & Diana Weddle, June 10, 2021 So sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with CR for 16 years on the Harpoon and Tomahawk program. He was a very positive and great guy to work with. I really enjoyed attending the weekly lunches that he kept arranging. Mark Dorak, June 10, 2021
