Although Chris's time with us was far too short, we are so grateful for the years we had with an amazing husband, father, grandfather and friend. His greatest legacy is the many amazing relationships he leaves behind, the result of a huge heart and generous spirit. We will always remember Chris for his insatiable curiosity, commitment to his community, and most of all his love for Jesus. His courage and good cheer through long illness is an inspiration to everyone who knows him. His family would like to express gratitude to O'Conner and Westfort Baptist Churches for their support, and to the staff of Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre for their wonderful care. Chris is survived by his mother Cecilia; his wife, Marnie; his son Brad (Julia); his grandchildren, Mitchell and Victoria; and his sisters Jackie and Susan.
