Chris leaves behind family members in California and Hawaii; Chris leaves his many friends and family members behind who loved him.
Chris was a very vibrant, “care free, happy go lucky” person from the time he was a young boy. Chris was soft spoken and gentle he didn’t like confrontation. He always had a light air around him. He had a big heart and beautiful kind smile that was infectious. He was a ray of sunshine even when he was sick. Chris was a fighter, he had open heart surgery at the ages of 8, 12 and then again in 2016. Chris took ill and got very sick fast and passed within a week. He fought to the end. He is a Superhero.
Chris loved Superheroes, as a child he had all the action figures. He went to all the movies, and he had all the shirts, hoodies, blankets, hats, and pj’s. Anything superhero!
Chris even had his own Superhero name “C-Man” which his brothers called him by. We love you Chris, and you are forever my brother, forever my friend.
The family would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers through this very difficult time. There will be a private service with family and friends for Chris at Boston Cremation in Malden.
Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
