Chris was always young at heart. Among his many interests he loved movies, ranging from horror to Disney. He also enjoyed listening to music, ranging from pop to hardcore punk. His favorite holiday was Halloween. He loved to decorate and hand out candy to the trick or treaters. He enjoyed reading comic books and planting his vegetable garden every summer. He had many collections including Incredible Hulk figurines, horror movie collectibles, sunglasses, and baseball hats. He loved going out to eat and trying new restaurants. He always looked forward to vacations with his wife in Ogunquit, ME and various towns on Cape Cod. He was an avid animal lover; his favorites being dogs, pigs, and turtles. He also loved going to Southwick’s Zoo and observing the animals there. Above all Chris was a kind and compassionate person, who always wanted to make those he cared for smile and laugh. He held a deep love for his friends and family and, even in his final days, selflessly placed the concerns of others before his own.
