Chris enjoyed his morning routine of making coffee, picking up his three newspapers and reading them cover-to-cover. He loved his “Boonsboro family” at Boonsboro Country Club where he was an avid member for decades. He enjoyed golf, drinks, and fellowship with all of his good friends. Chris was loved by many for his sharp sense of humor, wit, bright smile, charm, and his genuine love for the people in his life, especially his daughter, Chapel Dee, whom he loved more than anything in the world.
