Condolences

Condolence From: Richard Wright
Condolence: Chris and I met back in 1982 at Mather AFB, CA, where we worked together. We became good friends. When I left about 3 years later, we lost touch for nearly 25 years until Chris found me on fb and reached out. We talked or texted nearly every week from that point on. I'm so glad he reached out and I will miss him tremendously. A very funny guy, extremely generous heart, and one of my dearest friends. He leaves a void and I feel like my world is less without him. We will see each other again Chris, I am convinced of that! Until then, know I will be thinking of you often. Blessings to Marilyn and the family...may God ease the pain of separation you feel and watch over you.

Condolence From: Sandy Moffitt Carpenter
Condolence: Marilyn, it doesn't feel as though it's been 45 years since I convinced Chris that you would go out with him if only he would ask! His sharp wit and wicked sense of humor will be missed for sure. You and your family have our deepest sympathy.

Condolence From: MICHAEL A. JONES
Condolence: I'VE KNOWN CHRIS SINCE BEGINNING HIGH-SCHOOL. AFTER GRADUATION, HE WENT INTO AIR FORCE, AND I WENT INTO OFF-SHORE OIL DRILLING. I KEPT IN TOUCH WITH HIM UNTIL HE AND MARILYN MOVED TO THE MAINLAND. HE WAS A FUNNY GUY, ALMOST GUITAR HERO, LOVING FATHER AND HUSBAND. HE HAD A WAY OF MAKING THE BEST, OUT OF A STORM. CHRIS, BROTHER, HOLD ME A SPOT IN HEAVEN. MARILYN, STAY STRONG AND KEEP UP THE GOOD YOU ARE BRINGING TO THE WORLD. GOD BLESS US ALL, AND THOSE IN HEAVEN.
