To his family and friends, Chris was loyal, generous and the source of much joy and laughter. Chris had an infectious smile and a warm embrace for each and every person that he met. When you met Chris you made a new friend. His enthusiasm for life and his love for those people, places and things that mattered most were unwavering. An avid sports fan, Chris was a die-hard loyalist to the Georgia Bulldogs. His was passionate about those things that he enjoyed - traveling abroad, running, snow skiing, cooking, lobster fishing in the Florida Keys, and midnight rafting down the Chattahoochee. There was never a mountain too high or a slope to steep for Chris. He was committed to everything that he ventured and was joyful in the attempt. Chris's greatest passion was reserved for his wife Kristin and their two children, Llewellyn and Phillip. He was a devoted husband who loved nothing more than making his wife smile. And, Kristin smiled a lot when she was with Chris. As a father, Chris gave endlessly and was absolute in his love. For Llewellyn and Phillip, he was the shoulder to cry on, the playmate rolling around on the floor and the steady and constant hand letting them know that everything would be OK. Chris graduated from The Lovett School in 1993 and from the University of Georgia, Terry College Business in 1999 earning a bachelor's degree in business administration and marketing. Chris went on to earn a certificate of golf course management from the Universidad Europa de Madrid, a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Tech College of Management and, in 2012, a certificate of hotel revenue management from Cornell University.
