I knew Chris from childhood on.  We hung out with Chris a fair amount at the arcade when we were in junior high.  My family moved away from Salida for a while, but I usually saw him around when going back to visit for Fibark and stuff.  He was always a really nice guy, very funny and sweet.  My condolences to his family, especially his girls, and to the rest of his loved ones.  RIP Chris 😢

I went to elementary school with Chris and graduated from high school with him in the class of '85. He was a wonderfully warm, kind, funny guy and it breaks my heart that he's no longer in the world with us. Condolences to all who knew and loved him. He will be missed.

My Beloved Nephew we will miss you so much. I know Grandma & Grandpa are waiting with the little lady bugs, and rolly polly bugs you treasured as a child..  The memories of you will be in our hearts always.  You are our angel in heaven.
