Chris was loved by all who knew him. He loved kids and working with kids. He was an accomplished chef the duration of his working career. He worked for Duck City Bistro, Abbey Hotel, and Arrowhead Ranch to name a few. He loved the outdoors to include camping, fishing, hunting, nurturing his garden and running his beloved dog, Liberty. Chris’ life and career was afflicted by the onset of multiple sclerosis for the last decade of his life. He was never a complainer and asked for nothing; very gracious and humble.
