It was always a pleasure to see Chris, our neighbor, on some project in the backyard with Quinn or saying hello to Jane or Dudley. We'll miss him.

What a lovely tribute to such a good and decent man. My condolences to Quinn and Emma in the loss of their Dad and to Roberta in the loss of Chris as her partner and friend in life and career.Condolences to his other children, Jon and Tamara whom I did not have the pleasure of meeting
Chris was truly a gifted teacher in every sense of the word. Softspoken, always with a smile and his really good mind was so applied to the creative and the thoughtful view of the world as well as his projects and classes. A life well lived brought to close prematurely. Love to all of the family, Suzanne

Simply put, I would not be where I am today, an active scholar and university professor, were it not for Chris's unflagging support, careful mentoring, and inspiring instruction. He was a model for me of what it means to be a contributing member of academia. And though I will never meet up to his high standards of excellent, his work as a teacher and thinker remain standards to which I continually aspire. To the members of his family, and especially Roberta, our time with Chris at Cornell was magical. Please accept my most heartfelt condolences.

I am shocked. This was the man who more than anyone else taught me how to teach, and this is the one thing that I am sure I can do. I thought I would enjoy a good conversation with him again sometime soon. He will be missed. I am thinking of you Roberta, Emma, and Quinn.

It's my lucky to take Chris' class in the past year. His spirit, kindness, and attitude toward his career will not never decay.
