It is tragic to lose a loved one before they lived a full life. There are no words at a time like this. The heart is broken forever, the pain never goes away, but in time it does lessen. Chris will live on in the hearts of his family and everyone who knew him.

Words cannot explain how heartbroken I am. You were so full of life, and it is hard to accept that that you are gone. Thank you for giving me the confidence to know that you had my back if I ever needed it. You will always hold a special place in my heart.

Such a sweet & caring soul he was(I’m a little biased- we are cousins). I hate that he was taken so soon in life. I think the summers my aunt Cindy babysat my sister & I, was when he showed us how to shoot pool. Definitely praying in the days ahead for all four of his children.

One of the best things I got from the Navy was watching young men turn into great men. And Chris was one of the first ones that I saw make that transformation. RIP brother.

Chris served with and for me in VAQ-132 onboard CV60 USS SARATOGA during Desert Shield and Desert Storm. He was a dauntless young sailor that met every challenge head on with an untiring dedication to duty. Cheerful and always ready for the toughest assignments - a pleasure to have served with. He will be greatly missed by all of the Desert Storm Scorpions of VAQ (Electronic attack) squadron ONE THREE TWO. LCDR David "Chris" Chirstopherson, USN Ret. Known to Christopher as "Chief Chris".
