Doug EllisonI am sad and shocked to hear of Chris's passing. We met 25 years ago and travelled to Austria to set up a CFPL advertisers trip and for many years after enjoyed his company on the yearly trips.

Eric NixonMore than just a co-worker, I considered Chris a warm and caring friend who was always there to listen and act with compassion whenever his help was needed. He was a unique, honest, humourous and devoted man who left an indelible mark on everyone he met. I will cherish forever the 20 years I had the pleasure of knowing him. Rest in peace, Cleaveria.

Linda MansourI had the immense honor and pleasure to work with Chris when I was first hired at what was the A Channel. We sat next to one another every day, and being new in the business, Chris kindly took me under his wing. Chris was at his core a gentleman, a giver, a proud and loving man. But more than anything, I will always remember our laughs. I attribute so much of my early success to him. His guidance, his encouragement and how he taught me to do business. Always with integrity. I wish more than anything that I could have seen him more these last years, but he has never been far from my heart. You will be missed by so many Chris. Rest in peace my dear friend.
