He graduated from Falmouth High School in 1982 and later attended Northeastern University and the

different locations, serving many different roles, including training fellow soldiers during Desert Storm.

with him, touching hundreds of lives, from Maine to Kentucky, Georgia to Florida, and in every location
he was stationed in between. As a drummer, Chris spent time with various bands, while his well-known
love for music was most recently shared through evenings of karaoke with friends and with his church,
Abundant Life Worship Center.

Chris lived life to his own beat and on his own terms, always treating others with polite respect. With
his outgoing personality, he was blessed with numerous strong, lifetime friendships that he always
considered his extended family. Wherever life brought him, through whatever challenge he faced,
Chris always carried with him the greatest love for God, his family, and his country.
