Every once in a while someone bigger than life comes along. Chris was the third such person I have known.
He was full of life. He never wasted a minute. He hardly slept; it was as if he knew he only had 27 years.
He was an avid skier in the winter and scuba diver in the summer. He played hard and he also worked hard.
He was a natural leader. He was in the process of taking over the leadership of our family. I was happy to have him do it. He was very protective of his family and friends. The proof of his character is the love of his friends. They all still visit and comfort us as they know Chris would want them to.
Chris had a strong Catholic education. He went to St. Charles Elementary School‚ Monsignor Farrell High School and St. John’s University. He will be forever loved and missed.
