Chris was deeply committed to his family and was a friend to all. He enjoyed watching his beloved Detroit Tigers, Cleveland Browns and Ohio State Buckeyes. He was a proud member of the Fremont Elks where he served as Exalted Ruler and later, Esquire for ten years. He was kindhearted and generous to many people and organizations throughout the years.
Chris was a devoted son and spent much of the last few years assisting his parents, taking them shopping, out to eat, and anywhere they wanted to go. He liked traveling to Toronto to visit his son and precious grandchildren. He loved eating at Little India, Tony Pacos and Loma Lindas, where you can find his name on the donor wall as you enter. He enjoyed golfing and hanging out with his brother Bernie and their brotherly bickering kept their friends entertained.
