Chris dedicated most of his life as a Semi-Truck driver and was very passionate about traveling to different states. He enjoyed being able to take his family on the road, adventuring new places and making many good memories. We all remember Chris as a great loving husband, father and grandpa very family oriented, spending every minute possible with his family creating fun memories. Always looking for an opportunity to make breakfast for his wife and kids, not to mention a plate lickin' omelette at your custom request or a cookout in the late evening outside their home.
He won the heart and laughter of us all that crossed paths with him. His very unique and bold personality had no filter where his hobby was talking sh*t not caring what others thought or said. Always thinking and caring of his family and friends, with no hesitation he always pulled through and was there. We all knew he was the go-to for advice and a shoulder to lean on. His great knowledge on many different unique topics always amazed us when he would share them with us. We all have great fond memories with Chris, he was and always will be the life of the party.
"KEEP ON TRUCKIN' IN PARADISE"
