During his time in the Air Force he received his associates degree and received numerous awards and medals. After retirement from the AF, he worked as a manager doing licensure contracts.

Chris loved to joke and had a wonderful sense of humor with a smile that couldnt be beat. He enjoyed spending time with his family. He also enjoyed going on family vacations, even with extended family, and heading out on road trips to find fun places to visit along the way, letting his wife stop to take thousands of photos without too much grumbling. He loved to run and participated in numerous and full marathons with his children. Additionally, he spent time volunteering with Honor Flight, and helping with Eagle Scout projects.

As a boy scout leader for Troop 911, for 6 years, he guided at least 15 scouts through attainment of their Eagle Scout awards and taught them to be independent and how to be effective leaders. He enjoyed camping, hiking, biking, and being outdoors with the scouts and with his family. He would take his troop to Arlington National Cemetery to do Wreaths Across America each Dec.

Chris was a Chevy truck enthusiast. He enjoyed going to car shows and showing his 52 Chevy truck, which he rode in with his dad when he was a young boy. He enjoyed his time out in his garage working on restoring his classic carsyou always knew where to find him.

Chris was always active and helped others whenever he could, whether it would be helping neighbors and friends, stopping to help pull people out of snow banks on his way home from work or giving someone a ride home. He loved working with his hands and did a lot of work renovating his entire home. He was a wonderful person and all who met him loved him. He kept his sense of humor even through the most difficult times during his hospitalization.
