Chris was always very kind and helpful. Rain or shine, he would be there and help with a smile. He loved to mow the garden and felt good when he had done a good job, which was always! My condolences to his family. Chris will always be missed in lawyer's row. He made our lives better, with a sunny smile. Hope he is happy and healthy , Up There.

Chris took good care of us with mowing and yard work on a regular basis. He was a kind and respectful man and we enjoyed his company. He will be missed by myself, Julie and Jocelyn. I am grateful that he is now with God and is healed and happy.

A friend of mine for over 39 years, he was very helpful to me in the "early days". May your family be comforted by the higher power in their lives. Rest Chris.....
