While Chris grew up in California, he had a special bond with his cousins, aunt, uncles and grandparents in Minnesota. He often visited Carl and Phyllis Lindberg of North Branch and thoroughly enjoyed time with his father’s siblings and their children.
Chris was an extraordinarily talented young man who excelled in a wide range of interests. During his life he embraced such activities as competitive figure skating, roller hockey, Boy Scouts, rock climbing and mountaineering. He was a formally trained chef who specialized in pastries.
His diverse interests and training included metal fabrication, auto mechanics and his true love, flying. He qualified for a Private pilot license in 2003 at age 19 and nearly achieved an instrument rating. When he talked, people were fascinated at his extensive knowledge of literally any topic.
He was a kind and generous soul who always wanted to teach and assist others.
