Chris, Topher, Chriskins (Nickname from his sister Danielle), Blinkie (by Grandpa George) was a sharp-witted, fun-loving and charming person. From youth, he was always searching for adventure, a little trouble, and seeing what he could get away with. This made for some long and intense games of hide and seek/ paintball that sometimes ended in battle wounds. He enjoyed fishing with his grandfather, being outdoors, and working with his hands, which he continued into his adult life. You could always find him working on his cars, trucks, and bikes, driven by the love of creating something out of nothing. He was always there for a hot meal, cooked expertly by his mom Launa, with a big bear hug and loud-booted footsteps. He loved and was loved so much by his older sister Danielle. Chris was the type of person who even when you hadn’t seen him in a while, it would feel like no time had passed at all.
