"Good One" was just a nickname. "Best One" described the man and his life. Thanks for including me in that life, brother, if only for a short time. Peace, my friend.

Saved by Zero!

Chris, among the most upbeat, can do people I've ever known, from the good old days at Fairfield Uni to following your adventures on Facebook. Always put a smile on my face. Miss you mate. RIP.

I've been on a lot of adventures all over the world with Chris over the past 20 years --cruises to the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea, and Tahiti as well as trips to Australia and Italy and New Year's Eves several times in West Virginia. Chris made every trip more exciting, fun, and zany. He was always ready for a good game of cards or Mexican train or a good time socializing in a bar. Chris was a joy to have along and his exuberance was contagious. For example,.....even though I'm not much of a drinker, he managed to persuade me to come to the Carlos & Charlie's bar in Aruba for "just a little while" before going to the beach, which was my ultimate plan for our one day in port. I ended up staying all day, getting "happy" with a few beverages he suggested....that tasted really good! He eventually had me up on a chair doing the YMCA dance and having the time of my life. Every day with Chris was better and brighter and we'll continue to keep him with us in our hearts wherever in the world we are.

Chris was one of the friendliest, nicest, funniest guys at Fairfield U! I was ALWAYS laughing when I was with him! He reconnected with me on FB and made me instantly remember how much I loved being with him in college and missed seeing him. We continued our friendship thru FB and for that I am grateful. My thoughts and prayers go out to his beloved family and many friends. Know that he is watching down over everyone with his great big smile on his face (and maybe he is trying to lick a face or two up in Heaven!) Chris was a wonderful man and will be missed by many. Love you Chris! Kneesy

The sadness and tears of your loss will be replaced by the memories of your beautiful smile and laughter that we have had the pleasure of experiencing for the past 20 years. Going through all of the pictures of our fun times together, it was evident that we all felt joy and happiness in your presence.

When I start thinking about Chris, it begins with nicknames. Chris gave Ellen hers – “Bagels” – and he coined another one for Andrea – “Kneesy.” “Digger” called Chris “Good” and there were variations like “Good Eatins” and “The Good One.” Chris truly was a good one and a true friend, but it did not start out that way.

Chris moved on to Regis 2 in sophomore year while I had lived there freshman year too. The group of us who had lived there previously were close and did a lot of things together. Chris, Bill, Pete and Sean brought this to our attention and said they wanted to join the clique. We had not realized that we were excluding them, so we included them from then on. Chris led this effort to bring us together and made sure that there were no hard feelings.

Chris' passing took us all by surprise and it made me reflect on a few lost opportunities. Ellen was able to dine with Chris three times in the past year – twice in DC and once in Orlando. I was traveling when Chris was in Orlando that time, so I just thought that I would catch up with him the next time. I did not send him a note saying this and Chris likely thought the same thing – see you next time.

There are many things that will always remind me of Chris: the Stag-Her; rum and Tab; Pat Benatar; a Fairfield or Stag license plate; “Let's Go Hoyas” cheers (I am still curious why he started these at Fairfield games); concerts at Wolftrap, USAir Arena, MCI Center; racquetball at GW. I may miss Chris the most in March as he hosted a lively March Madness tournament pool.

Chris truly is one of the finest Stags ever!

Your light will forever shine through all of the lives you touched. I will forever miss you my "Cajun" brother. Keep that Second Line going and save a place for me -You are now truly Marching with the Saints!
