CandleI remember when I turned 11 and he came to get Jaxyn and wished me a Happy Birthday.

Sarah & Mike,

I had visited with Chris several times over the past summer. The last time we visited Chris told me he was now going full time in his business. He was genuinely excited and ready to go. Chris was kind, polite, worked very hard and had many good things going for him. I will miss visiting with Chris. I am so sorry for your loss. My sincere condolences to you and your family.

Very Respectfully & Sincerely, John & Jana Finley.

Living next door to Chris I can say he always had a smile and a wave. My prayers to his family and friends and especially his son. May God wrap his arms around all of you and give you strength.

Jana (Mrs. Long) on Feb 5, 2020

I only met Chris a few times as Jaxyn's Kindergarten teacher but the smile on Jaxyn's face below says it all. He loved his dad and talked about him often. He was proud his dad "worked in trees" as he stated several times. I am very sorry to everyone who is effected by this unexpected loss.

CandleWords can’t describe the pain in my heart. I didn’t know Chris for even a year, but a huge impact he had on me. We rode so much. Got ice cream. Beers and food. You outbid me at our poker run on that damn gun concealed box! God I wanted that! I’m gonna miss you my dude! Much love!!! And dearest Mysti. I can’t even imagine what pain you’re going through. I’ll always be here if you need anything at all!

Chris was the arborist at our company. He was a friendly and kind person. Enjoyed working with him.
