I met Detroit when I was a teenager, at one of his notorious Memorial Day Run parties, right about the time he got his beautiful Connie. He was always such a happy & funny guy! I was privileged to know him, we all were! Aloha 'oe, Chris <3

To my old friend Detroit. Remembering the days when you, Stewart,Whellner and me all lived at Elliotsville (late 70's early 80's) always makes me smile. Those were good old days. Party on Brother.

When I first met Chris he was working in the mines all night long and sleeping in the day, and I was just a kid. Even at that age I understood that he was a hard worker but that didn't impress me so much as his long long beard, which now at 48 years old, I still couldn't pull off myself. When I was growing up, some of my best memories were just laying out on towels at Dow Lake with Connie, Toni Kristen, Chris, and myself all in cut-off jeans after an unplanned dip. As the years rolled on Chris became a foreman and I grew to admire his natural leadership because he really cared about his crew. He was fighting for his guys when he needed to, and watching their backs both in the mines and with the management. During that time, despite logging so many hours underground, he managed to fix up one house and then another. Sadly and luckily the mines eventually came to an end, but by that point Chris was a man who set his own rules and lived by them. There were Harleys, pool tables, The Smiling Skull, and even some land. Over the years lots of things changed: more kids, new friends, grandkids, and few motorcycle trips. But Chris was always authentic, hard working, and put friends and family before any of the many noisy distractions of life. He was just as happy to have a picnic lakeside as most are to travel the world. So whenever I'm out on my hill watching a big old patch of lichen sway gently with a warm breeze, I'll be thinking of that big beard on Chris and smile with him at the sunshine.

Much love,
