It's been almost 2 years since Chris passed but it seems like yesterday. I miss "my boy" so much. But he was with me through my ordeal last year, reminding me to "suck it up Auntie". A magnificent person even when he's not here.

I am now just learning of this very sad news through an email from URO and am feeling stunned. Chris and I shared many commonalities and became easy friends after first meeting sitting in our wheelchairs.. We both had small town-farm roots, loved horses,rodeos, meeting people & finding fun & adventure before and after we started life wheeling. We have lost a great & kind man who will always be treasured. I extend my sincere condolences to all who love him.

Chris was a true leader and inspiration to so many. I have many fond memories of Chris throughout the years, from days at Kenosee, his smile, his dancing moves, his contagious laughter, the way everyone gathered to hear his stories are just a few. May you find comfort in your memories, and be proud in knowing that Chris lived his life on purpose and made a difference to everyone he knew. He will be deeply missed.

Dear Maryanne, Michelle and family.

Chris was one of the strongest people that I know. He never seemed to let his disability get him down. Truly a role-model. I will miss his awesome smile. I guess its true that the good die young. May it be of comfort to know that he is now spending Christmas in heaven with all his family members who have gone on before him. RIP Chris, I considered it an honor to know you.

With sincere sympathy,

My name is Christine Gauthier, I am a paddler from the original team of paracanoe. I am so truely sadden with this news and I wish to express to his family and Michelle my sincere condoleances. I am sorry I can't be there in person being in Florida now and residing in Quebec. We recently e-mailed back and forth as he just found out he also was sponsering the sledge hockey woman's National Team that I was on, something else he was involved with ! I have great and very fond memories of Chris, i will paddle on for you at the Rio Games Chris. For sure Chris will definitely be missed, a person with such charisma does not go without leaving a huge void. I'll think of you my friend !X0X

I met Cowboy last year at the USA National Disabled Water Ski Championship. One of those guys you feel like is an old friend even though you just met.
Bless you my friend. When next we meet we will shred a few one handed turns around the slalom bouys ... only this time we won't be sitting down.
In my thoughts and prayers.

So saddened to see this obituary. I spoke with Chris in October while visiting with another friend/coworker from the Credit Union and was saddened to hear of his battle. I had no idea it could progress that fast. My deepest sympathies to his significant other and his family. Chris was always a guy I admired....always upbeat and genuine. I am blessed to have worked with him and known him. Please know that I thought so much of this young man and he's left a legacy.
