His laughter and goofiness. Also his dealings with Aunt Jemima (inside joke with a few friends)

This breaks my heart. Chris was always a nice person no matter what. He was a kind and gentle soul. He always made my bus ride to golf practice so much more fun! He will be greatly missed. Prayers and love to his family. :broken_heart:

I remember when I first meet him he was so nice to me and he was awesome but now to know that he is gone and is with God. It's sad i'm in NC and he was in Minnesota I wish i could see him again before he passed. I love you Chris. I will be sure to pray for everyone and just know that he is watching over us.
