    The obituary didn’t include that he was a singer that played out with a band. And he was a damn good one at that.

    Farewell my friend.

    We’ll always cherish the memories of Chris and weekend visits to the Condellire’s. Always the best cousins. Chris and the boys seemingly played every sport well and knew every band/song/album. They were vinyl early adopters long before it was cool. Love to all of you. You’re in our thoughts, as we share your grief.

    Jeff, Lori, Jess & Katie
