    i met Chris quite a few times when I worked at the Hoptel at the VA and we coordinated a lot of things with the Volunteer Services department. He was always so nice and pleasant, he truly enjoyed making the veterans feel appreciated. When the Cowboys win the Super Bowl this season, it’ll be for him.

    My condolences and prayers go out to his family. Chris was a “Good Dude”…I work over at the Milwaukee Vet Center and when I would come to the hospital and stop at Volunteer Dept., Chris would be the first person I would see. He was always helpful and pretty much got me whatever I asked for to give to the Veterans. He will truly and surely be missed.

    My time with Chris were always good encounters. This sudden loss to the family and to our Va Vounteers have made my heart cry for he was a very good person to all who spoke to him over the years. I enjoyed his knowledge and his ways of thinking though he was a quiet guy at times with lots on his mind. With deepest condolences for Chris and his family I am truly sorry for your loss. May he rest in Peace as he now sits at the right hand of our creator. In his name, Amen Slow Hand Salute

    Great guy! I called down one day to get some things for a veteran, we chatted about how crazy the day had been and I mentioned I really needed coffee. Told him I would grab the items when I got my coffee. Ended up getting too busy on the floor, so that afternoon I called and told him I was sending down our aide to get it, he asked if I ever got my coffee and I said no! So we joked a bit about that. When the aide came back to the floor with the items, Chris had sent a K-cup for me with a not saying he hoped it helped my day get better! It put the biggest smile on my face, so unexpected. He was always so friendly and helpful. He will be missed!!!! I was heartbroken to see this, prayers to all his family and friends. RIP Chris.
