Having servant's heart for the Lord he enjoyed volunteering at his church, Bridge Life Church, as well as Muskegon's annual Unity Festival.

Chris loved fishing and the outdoors, some of our happiest memories of him were the days and times spent fishing out on one of the lakes and spending time together as a family and sharing his passion for the outdoors, especially fishing, with his with his grandchildren. He was respected by many and loved by all who met him; and will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.

We were blessed getting to know your folks at Bridge Bible Church, going on some of the ETCH travels, and having them in our small group. As it became harder for them to get around, they invited our group to meet in their home! Praying for all y'all...
