Chris was a graduate of Alvarado High School and attended Tarrant County College.
He spent time as a firefighter and EMT. He also worked for many years as a branch manager for several staffing companies.
Chris’ love was his wife and family. The light of Chris’ life was most definitely his kids and grandchildren. He cherished them and he was a great dad and “POPS”.
To his kids Chris was the best story teller, cook, splinter remover and broad shoulder to lean on. He could untangle any necklace and could make anything with his hands (and he did so with great pride). If you needed to light a birthday candle, he had a blow torch that would do the trick.
Chris followed his dad into the Masonic fraternity. He was a past master of Alvarado Lodge #314.
