I worked with Chris at the Salt Lake Surgical Center for many years. Although I was 14 years older then Chris we became close friends. He volunteered to change my air conditioning pads on my very high pitched roof...which was a very difficult thing to do & dangerous. I was so sad when Chris left the SLSC & missed him so much. He was a very kind, gentle young Man, with sparkling blue eyes & a fantastic smile.
