We had a fun evening at Darcy's camp years ago with Chris. He played guitar, we sang songs that we made up ourselves and laughed all night. He was very entertaining and kind. Could not ask for a better fire side buddy at Perry Pond.
He was ready to leave but we begged him to stay and keep playing and singing....and he did. So sorry for you loss.

Lana and family: Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your son. No parent should ever have to go through this as we are supposed to go before them. I pray to God that he will give you the strength to get through this through the help of your faith, family and friends.

I consider myself very lucky to have met Chris. I will always remember how, when I was new to Portland, he made me feel welcome and part of his crew. His infectious laughter and his ability to hold a room's attention will always be remembered. I will never forget Chris and I wish I had more time with him. My sincerest condolences to his friends and family. You are loved.

All I can say is shock, unbelievable. I am so sorry and please accept my sincere sympathy. I am in Fl. this week, so can't be there for services.

I'm so sorry to hear about Chris, I knew him from UMO. He was so funny and kind! Some of my best memories from college include Chris singling songs that he made up on the spot...always making people laugh, he was a joy to be around. Thoughts and prayers to his family and close friends, I'm so sorry for your loss.
