I am the aunt of Chris' longtime friend, Scott Ital. My husband and I, along with most of my family met Chris on two occasions. One was when he and Scott went canoeing with us about two years ago. Another time he went with our entire family to eat at Middendorf's. There was another time I spoke to him when he was working at a computer company. I am sorry I was not able to know Chris better. He was a very nice, warm individual that had a great sense of humor. I know that Scott thought the world of him and because of that I know he must have been 'one of the good guys'. I am truly sorry for your loss.
