Chris you had a heart of gold. I remember you from your sisters wedding dressed in a blue tux. You always came running to me to play games with you when I was at your home. You worked on our shed walking on the beams like a monkey. You always helped when it was needed.
You will be greatly missed by all. But mostly your loving children, and your family, whom you loved with all your heart.
Rest in Peace my friend.
Dear Amanda and Family so sorry for your loss I did not know your Dad but he must have been a wonderful man to have such a lovely family. My deepest sympathy.
