Chris was a great person to work with and for. When we lost Don Stitcher, he took on the job of Guard production manager like he was born to it. He was very compassionate, never showed anger, was very upbeat, just a super, super person. He was very passionate about his family, his firefighting, and the Guard and always kept the press running. My prayer is for peace for Chris and his family and friends.
Michelle, I am so sorry for your loss. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Michelle, thinking about you and Blair and praying for comfort. Chris was a sweetheart and will be missed. So sorry about your loss. Love you both.
So so sorry to hear about Chris. A great loss. He made coming into the Guard to pick up my papers interesting. If he was smiling, the press was behaving. If he wasn’t I tried to highlight his day by doing or saying something stupid so he would have to laugh or at least smile. We often talked about Michelle and Blair. He loved his family but HATED FB. 😊
