We are truly sorry for your loss and being a close cousin makes it worse. Due to covid-19 we are at a high risk factor and advised not to take part in large gatherings, so we will not attend the service. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all

Chris was a larger than life, big spirited and kind man to myself and all of his N&M customers. As the Account Manager for most of Chris's territory I can attest to how beloved he was by everyone with whom he came in contact. I would consistently receive positive comments about him and how much people looked forward to his arrival, bringing his raucous laugh and huge heart and smile along with him. He was a great partner to myself and all of his customers, always willing to go the extra mile to help anyone. I often heard happy stories of time spent with his family, especially his grandchildren, children and of course, Heidi. I offer my sincerest condolences and pray you will find some peace in knowing how much he truly loved you all, and was loved by so many. Although he still will live on in our hearts, he will be dearly missed here on earth.

Chris was a warm and caring next-door neighbor, welcoming our family 24 years ago. His love for life and family was forever glowing and evident, out playing loudly and vividly every day as if he was having more fun than the kids. The positive vibes, cheerfulness, and contagious laugh emanated for miles. His energy and pride were also obvious as he worked endlessly in the yard with his straw hat, no shirt, tanning away. I’m so sorry for the pain of his tragic loss. Know that we are all praying and here for anything needed in these difficult times.
