  1. Chris was one of my most favorite people have ever met and I feel so fortunate to have had in my life. We had so many good laughs in the Air Sea Department. My heart is broken that this has happened to him. God Bless you my friend. May you and your Mom be safe in the loving light of God!

  2. Kathy Van Gundy

    I didn’t know Chris well; he was the Lufthansa representative for our travel agency in Des Moines, Iowa. For the brief time I knew him, I enjoyed his visits, his sense of humor, his professionalism and most importantly, the unfailing support he gave our agency and travelers. His compassion was always what I admired most. My sympathy to the family of both Chris and Dolores. May God’s strength sustain you in the days and years ahead.

    My condolences to his family on their loss of Chris and Dolores.

  7. Chris was a great friend with a wicked sense of humor. The care he gave his mom went above and beyond and he should be remembered for his loyalty and devotion. Chris was fun and hardworking. It’s so sad that he died so suddenly, way too young with so much still ahead of him. Rest in peace Chris, you will be missed. Hope heaven had a cold one waiting for you!!

    I worked with Chris in Sales at Swiss International Airlines. He was an outstanding employee who was admired, respected, and liked by both his clients and colleagues. He was also as kind and generous a man as I have ever known, and his love and devotion to his mother was simply remarkable. It was my good fortune to know Chris for this brief time, and he will be missed. I wish you and your mom the greatest peace my friend. Rest in Peace.

    I met Chris as part of my work many moons ago. He was a fine colleague. His kindness and gentle way was always so appreciated. We had many laughs, and often we just smiled at things we knew that could not be changed. I am glad that I knew him and will cherish his memory.
    My deepest sympathy to the family for your loss.

  20. I met “auntie” Dottie through my mom Jenn when I was an infant and stayed with her when I was about 13, she always made us lion pancakes and treated my brother and I like grandchildren.
    I met Chris when I visited her last. He helped me through difficult times, even if he was telling me to be myself, the encouragement he gave me lives on to this day. He encouraged me to travel and live life. I deeply cherish the brief time I got to know him.
    I am so sorry to everyone in the family. My thoughts are with all of you with this sudden loss.
    Laura & Steven W
