Chris was a loving and caring man who had a big heart and a big smile. I will always remember him and keep him near and dear to my heart. We are both Anita Baker fans and every time I hear or play one her songs, I will think of Chris. Chris is home with our father and someday we all will see each other again. GOD BLESS YOU COLLEEN!!

Andy has known Chris since 1984 during which time he has been an inspiration on many fronts – Andy thinks in his own inimitable way Chris will continue to inspire. Irene’s memories of Chris are that of him always laughing and having something nice and funny to say about everyone. We think Colleen and Chris are a very special couple and complemented each other more than most couples will ever experience – we know Colleen will keep Chris in her heart and continue to live a great life. Don’t lose touch Colleen – we wish you all the best and to Chris – “see you soon”! Love always Andy and Irene

As many others here, I had the pleasure of being a co-worker of Chris’ for many years. He always had the ability to make one smile, and no matter how bad your day was going, that smile and upbeat attitude always made you feel better. I will miss him very much. Colleen–you are such a great inspiration to me with all the strength and support you gave to Chris, as well as allowing many of us into your lives as your journey went on. You have many friends at H-D, please let us know if there’s anything we can do for you in the days ahead.

Ride in peace. You were one hell of an instructor. God Bless You, Bill.

Chris was a good friend and a fantastic instructor that loved art and motorcycles. He introduced me to the HDMC family in 1989 when he “opened HDMC’s door” for me to the sales team of the time.
Collen, we admire you for the strength you had on this very difficult journey. If you need anything, please let us know.

Chris, We all miss you hombre!

I had the honor of being Chris’s hospice nurse. There were many days I wondered who was taking care of whom. Chris and Colleen are remarkable people who inspired me tremendously with their courage, humor, and kindness. They generously shared their life with me in obviously the most difficult of circumstances. My only regret is in not knowing them in happier times. I will always treasure the time I was able to spend with them.

Chris may have left us but the impressions he made will always be with us.

Benny Suggs

Chris was one of the first individuals I meet at HDMC. He was such a big help and always impressed me with his creativity, wit and his “up” attitude! I was so impressed and always will be. He saw goodness in everything and everyone – a rare trait for sure. What a priviledge and honor to have known him! He will be missed but never forgotten.

Working at H-D has been my dream too.
