We wish to extend our thoughts and prayers to Cora & family, & Sylvia and Bill, and family. Bob and I remember Chris from his young days as a ball player and hockey player with our son Ryan. He was always a quiet teammate, but you needed a calm Chris when some of the other young boys were getting fired up. He was a steady influence and will continue to guide you through with the support of each other and your family and friends. God bless..

So very sorry to hear of Chris' passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. Take comfort in knowing that Chris will live on in all of you as well as in those of us that did not know him as well, but knew him and knew the people he loved most. "Death is a challenge. It tells us not to waste time… It tells us to tell each other right now that we love each other." Leo Buscaglia
