Chris was a devoted husband and father he loved nothing more than spending time with them.  When his son was younger, he enjoyed coached him in Little League and Flag Football. He was always a proud dad in the theater watching his daughter dance for every performance.  He enjoyed family camping trips especially roasting marshmallows.  Chris was an avid gamer and really enjoyed playing them, whether it was on his phone or playing Minecraft with his children. He was always up for a card game, especially cribbage.   He had a passion for cooking that he shared with his family, friends, and several restaurants in the Sandpoint Area.  He cooked professionally until his health no longer allowed him too.  He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him.
