To all of Christopher’s family I send my thoughts and prayers. I was so deeply saddened to hear about his passing. In my experience Christopher had a good heart and cared about others more than himself. He called , and helped me at one of the lowest times in my life. I will never forget that. I Pray that you all can find some peace in your hearts.


My heart aches because you have lost a son. He was such a cute and loving young man. He was always willing to help out where he was needed. He will be missed by all who knew him. Our family will be here if you need us.

Love you guys


Ed and Sandy I am so so sorry to hear about Chris passing. No parent should have to get this news of their child and endure the pain. I did meet him briefly when I visited Vermont but reading this about him helped me get to know him more and I see he will be greatly missed by family and friends. Donnie and I are thinking about you and love you both.
