  3. While I do work for the same company that Chris worked for, I did not know him well. He was always cheerful and friendly on those occassions when I would cross paths with him at work or in a few training classes that we both attended. He seemed like a genuinely good guy and was clearly modest about his health as I never knew that he was experiencing any problems. If there is a heaven I am certain that Chris is there. Sincerely, Sheryl Gross

  4. Shared the same birthday – this Thursday. Chris, you always taught me something about myself through faith talks, through standing your ground when someone challenged you, yet being an example of peace in Christ’s name. I will miss you and seeing you at 5:30 Cathedral mass. I will miss your closet ski bum ways too – how we’d talk about the snow, the powder, what it was like in Breck that weekend. Always a conversationalist, you will be so missed.

  5. Thinking of you in your time of loss. Chris will be sadly missed by all who knew and worked with him. May you find comfort in memories shared of his gentle spirit and helpful nature.

  6. What a wonderful man he was! I’m so sorry that we — and you — lost him so soon. Please know that I’m praying for him and for all of you.

  7. I am so sorry.
    I’ll always remember Chris’ help and smiling face at the CLAY registration table.
    May Chris rest in peace and the Lord’s perpetual light shine upon him, his family, and friends.
    You are in our hearts and prayers.

  8. My deepest sypathies go out to the family. Chris was a great friend at church, and it was nice having him around at all the spiritual/social events with our group of friends. I moved away from Denver so I haven’t seen Chris as much in the past few years, but he definitely will be missed.

  9. Rest in Peace Chris.
    Chris’ Family, I pray that you may feel the consolation of our Lord Jesus and feel Mary’s arms around you comforting you when you most need it. God bless you and give you many graces at this difficult time and always.

  10. My thoughts and prayers go out to Chris’ family. Even though you don’t know me, I worked next to Chris for several years in downtown Denver. He was always helpful and we talked about travel a lot. So young to be gone already. But I know his strong faith would have sustained him during his suffering. And I know he is happy with the Lord now.

  11. So sorry to hear of the loss of Chris. We worked in the same group and sat near each other for several years. We would often talk about the Broncos, travel, and many other things. He will be missed.

  12. Dear Jan and Sam,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I can’t even imagine how you must be feeling. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Please take care of yourself!
    Jonie Fitz

  13. Dear Jan and Sam,
    We are so saddened to hear of Christopher’s passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Love and sympathy. Liz and Dick

  14. Dear Jan and Sam—-we were sorry to read of Christopher’s passing–our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God bless you.

  15. Chris was a wonderful co-worker and a great friend. His faith has inspired us and will be a model for us to follow. We remember the love for the outdoors that we had in common as well as travel. As a saint in heaven we are happy to have one more person to interceed for us. We will never forget him.

  16. Aunt Jan,
    I love you very much and we are so sad about Christopher. I have fond memories of us kids spending the summers together in Pueblo. That is a time I will never forget.
