Chris was an adventurer.He had many opportunities to take the conventional highway of life, but turned off it many times in favor of a backroad less travelled. He lived the life many people dream about living...some day. He made some day TODAY and did what his heart was telling him, and worked hard to make it happen. He never chose the easy route, either personally or professionally, but sought the most meaningful and adventurous path.

He LIVED. And he shared that life with us. That is his legacy.
