This is very sad news. Chris was always upbeat and pleasant to work with at school events. He wore many hats as a volunteer when we served on the PTA together. We even argued about the proper pronunciation of the Beryl Heights Elementary. He insisted it was Beryl as in Pearl. I argued it was Beryl as in Merrill. That always made us laugh. He was a kind soul. My condolences to his entire family.

I am so saddened to hear this news. Candace went to school with my sons and that is how we met. He was a generous and kind man. He loved his daughter more than the world. I will miss seeing him around town.
