Thank you mom and Anna for holding down the fort so I could spend all my time with Chris.
Chris loved his wife, family, dog and motorcycle, not always in that order. When Chris lost his hearing, he put away the motorcycle and found new joy in camping around our beautiful lakes (Thanks kids). After retirement, much to Chris’ delight he was never bored, as his wife always had just one more little “Reno-job” for him to do.
As Chris was a private man, only those closest to him witnessed his goofy sense of humour and his gentle nature. He had a strong love for his family and tried his best to stay with them as long as he could. After a long struggle with cancer, Chris being true to his nature, slipped away quietly, in his own bed.
He had requested no flowers or service. Instead, if it pleases
you, share a kindness with a stranger….just because.
