The family requests in lieu of flowers, that if you wish to help you make a donation to help defray Chris’ final expenses. All donations above final expenses will be forwarded to Chris’ daughter, Lilyana.




A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.
The father was kind of scared so
he asked his little daughter,
‘Sweetheart, please hold my hand
so that you don’t fall into the river.’
The little girl said, ‘No, Dad. You hold my hand.’
‘What’s the difference?’ Asked the puzzled father.
‘There’s a big difference,’ replied the little girl.

‘If I hold your hand and something happens to me,
chances are that I may let your hand go.
But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that
no matter what happens,
you will never let my hand go.’


Authenticity is the alignment of head, mouth, heart, and feet – thinking, saying, feeling, and doing the same thing – consistently. This builds trust, and followers love leaders they can trust.

—Lance Secretan (leadership coach)


Do you value life? Then waste not time, for that is the stuff of which life is made.

— Benjamin Franklin



Talent is God-given, be humble. Fame is man-given, be thankful. Conceit is self-given, be careful.
