I'm not 100% sure this is the right person, but I took two anthropology classes from someone with this name who was a visiting professor or postdoc at Caltech about 10 years ago. I specifically chose that second class on Latin America because I'd enjoyed the first one he taught. I was surprised and saddened to find this memorial when I looked him up tonight. I'm very sorry for your loss. I remember that he was an engaging professor, and I am glad to hear that he lived a very kind and generous life.

Chris and I studied together at UCLA. We didn't keep in touch after college, but I would often see his name come in the academic world. I was just catching up with some friends and we wondered what he was up to. I'm very sad to learn of his death. Chris was brilliant, warm, funny. I'm glad I got to know him.

I never got the privilege to meet Christopher. But knowing his father Michael and hearing about his son's accomplishments i know my loss is great as the remainder of the world who has not that opportunity to know Chris either. I am sure Heaven has re united father and Son now that Michael has since passed as well.I love the entire O Leary clan a good Irish Family. Love Dee

Chris was a big part of my life when I attended UCLA. I've been digesting this tragedy since reading the LA times article last week, and all the memories of who he was--so bright, funny, good natured, always achieving-- have flooded back.

I am thankful to know he reached many of his goals, remained the same upbeat happy person, had a close harmonious family and a joyous marriage. My heart goes out to his wife, mother, family and friends. I am so very sorry for your great loss of Chris O'leary--he was an exceptional person.

If there are any organizations / charities set up in his honor please let me know.

I knew Chris back in first and second grade when he attended Thomas Kelly Elementary School in Carmichael. We were neighbors and I remember playing Star Wars together and were good friends. I use to go over to Mike and Regina's house all the time and remember Mike taking us to baseball games.

I have not seen him since they moved away and just decided to look him up today and am saddened to know that he passed away. I wish his family and loved ones well.

I was just informed of Chris' passing from a past co-worker. To say I am shocked is an understatement. I had the pleasure of working with Chris on a few health projects at UCLA. He was always full of life, full of ideas and never at a loss for intelligent conversation. I can also distinctly remember his sometimes-quirky sense of humor. He was truly an original, one-of-kind person.

To his wife, parents and loved ones, I offer my deepest sympathy, sincere thoughts and heartfelt prayers. He will truly be missed.

I will be thinking of you all as this anniversary passes. I hope that every day your memories of Chris are accompanied by less pain. I will not forget him.
