Dear Shelly and family, Chris will be missed dearly. I was worried about him when Jeff passed away Jan 13. They were so close. I cannot believe they are both gone. These are hard times for us. Rest in peace Dear Chris! I will cherish all the good memories!

I'm so sorry for your loss. Chris grew up down the road from me and I remember him coming to play in our yard- climb to the tree house or swing on the rope swing. My condolences.

Shell, I still can't believe he's gone. I will miss his simple ways, his humor and his kind heart. I was talking with Judy about him the other day and reminiscing. We had some pretty good chuckles thinking of the times he went to Canada with us and some of the bus rides spent laughing and enjoying his humor when we were younger. I'm so glad I got to talk to him and tell him he was family to me. My heart is with you guys even though I can't be. Love you all!

Shelley Chris and I are so sorry for your loss. I remember you kids growing up. Mom and I met in the 6th grade and were friends since. Your Dad knew Donnie from before we even met. Keep the good memories in your heart and know he is with Mom and Dad now

Shelly, I was very sorry to hear of Chris' passing. I hadn't seen him since just before he moved out to In. to be near you and your folks. He was his usual bubbly self, big grin and all. I really miss your entire family as we were all so close all of our lives, your Dad and I from 3rd grade on and your Mom since she was a teenage candystriper.
You are in my thoughts.

Chris was good friends with my Uncle Norbert. I remember going to visit him on State Street. We went to a fun concert in Syracuse years ago. He was hilarious, and we always had fun. My thoughts are with Chris and his family and friends. May he rest in peace.
