Sandy, Chris was a long time friend to our family. We spent may a day at Captain Chris's. My children grew up there running around and swimming in the motel pool. Chris was a sweet honorable person and will be missed by those lives he touched on Tybee. Rest easy friend. Our thoughts, prayers and love are with the family.

What a giant-hearted man! Mr. Chris will forever be in our hearts and prayers. His love of his faith and his passion to mentor our children were truly inspirational. My father called him a dear friend. We love all of the Simons and will continue to pray for you. May His Memory Be Eternal!
