  • Josh, Heather and family. I’m so sorry for your loss. Sending prayers to all.

  • Sorry to hear of Chris’s passing. He was a good man and always had new joke or story to share. What a life he had and memories to share of his many motorcycle trips that he had taken over the years. I was fortunate enough to make my one and only trips (so far) to the Sturgis Motorcycle rally the year that the picture was taken above. I will never forget one of our rides while out when we went ripping down through a Wyoming mountain valley at about 90mph with a roadside deck full of bikers cheering us on and looking in my rear view mirror to see Chris with his hat on backwards and right on my tail. I clearly remember thinking, “I hope I am enjoying life like Chris when I am his age.” We will miss you buddy. Rest in peace my friend.
    Mark C. and family
