A truly good man is remembered... for being humble, compassionate, sensitive, genuinely caring about others and not asking anything in return. It's the smile and the "thank you" that makes everything he does worthwhile. He is a giver through and through. A man who is loved because of the love he shows others. He is the man who will be sorely missed... And remembered with nothing less than a loving smile, a warm feeling in the heart, and a thankfulness that God put such an amazing man on this earth, even if for a short time.

Kristen, Andrew - So sorry to hear the tragic news about your Dad! He was a force of nature all rolled into one man - great father, awesome grandfather - he truly embraced life. I lost my dad suddenly when I was your age and nothing before or after was as difficult as that. My thoughts and prayers are with you both xo Aunt Kathy

I am so sorry to learn of the passing of Chris who I came to know thru delivering my Heating Oil.
He was extreamly kind and compassionate and always had a smile no matter the time of day or how tired he must have been from a hard days work. He also seemed to understand other people's struggles and would bend the rules a bit to make sure people stayed warm!

I will miss him!
