  2. Chris, Was a nice guy. Back in 1996, I was going to the 61st Police precinct to join the Auxiliary Police program. My appointment was for 4:30 but the person in charge never showed up. I waited until approximately 11:00 pm. Chris, was such a gentleman. He was stationed in the PCT. that particular day and, was worried how I was going to get home at that time. He said if I waited a little longer he’d make sure I got home safe. I assured him I’d be ok taking the bus home. He walked me to the bus and apologize for the person not showing up. After I became a Auxiliary P.O. I occasion would see him around the PCT. always polite and respectful. I didn’t learn that he became a Firefighter until I learned of his tragic demise. I pray his family is at peace. God, bless them. May Chris, rest in peace for all eternity.

  3. Chris- we knew each other before the NYPD, when you worked at the bagel store on Flatlands Ave. Then, we were in Sister Companies at the Police Academy, and worked at the 61 in FRU together. We were called at the same time for the FDNY, and you accepted while I declined and stayed on with the NYPD.
    I miss you brother. Your smile was infectious and you always lifted people up. Rest easy my friend. God Bless.

  4. Saw your name In Memoriam in the Daily News today. Wondered why someone would die so young. Was so sad to read you died fighting a fire.
    Rest in Eternal Peace, brave firefighter. 😢😢😢
