I was a childhood friend of Chris, even though we have not seen each other for over 25 - 30 years , he is not forgotten! I remember walking around town with him and talking alot when we were in junior high, listening to the debut album of Loverboy, inviting me up to stay at his families cabin, singing in our band for awhile, his love for Led Zepplin! He comes up in our conversations of the past with my friends quit often! I remember his smile, and his very cool demeanor, you will be missed my friend! Hope you are at peace! Condolences to your family! Very sad news! Love ya, my man! Your friend Stephen Doerr
