Chris had such a big heart. It hurt him to see others in any kind of pain. His last wish was to be an organ donor and he did, so even in death he could help others.

He loved God and knew that God loved him and that someday he would be with his dad in heaven. He always enjoyed working on cars and electronics. He loved fishing, camping and doing fun activities with his family and friends.
