He graduated from Grand Junction High School in 1998. Chris lost a dear friend to a hate crime and was always passionate about fighting racial hate. He met the love of his life, Starlyn Tate and together they welcomed their son on April 22, 2007. Chris was a devoted father. He was an artist, a poet, an athlete, a lover of books and novels. He had a heart for God and a deep calling to discover and connect to the Divine. He was friendly, loyal, compassionate and had a soaring intellect. He remained true to his artistic talents and created art throughout his life.
