Christopher was my cousin, and although I had not seen him in years, our memory as kids will always be in my heart. I am saddened for his family, including my Aunt Mary. My the lord bless you all during this time of pain and sadness. Rest in peace cousin.

My heart is broken, I will always remember Chris's younger days when you all lived across the street from us on Carriage Lane. Chris spent so much time at the house with Michael, I thought he was one of mine own children My thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends.

My heart is broken for you (Mandy) and the boys! No one should ever have to go through this kind of heartache. Chris was such a great guy and a great father. I didn't know him very well but the time I did get to spend with you guys has always been full of laughter! My prayers and positive vibes will be with you at this time of you cuz so much, always keep your head held high <3

Truly sorry. This breaks my heart. Chris was such a stud and always had a knack at making ya laugh. His energy was so positive, he lifted spirits around him. He wasn't much of a cornhole player, but the boys picked up his slack. ;) I love you all, stay strong cuz! You'll all be in my prayers. Rest in absolute peace my friend...

I am saddened at the loss of Chris. I first met him at my motorcycle shop in Layton (DJ's Cycleworks) and later reconnected with him at the Radio Shack in Roy Utah. He was always upbeat and SO fun to talk to. He will be missed. Godspeed Chris. Hope to see you on the other side.
