Chris, also known by many as "Da Bay", was educated in the public school district of Fairfield County. Chris was a jack of many trades, but his love was painting.

Chris was a loveable and kind person who always had room in his heart for forgiveness. He was one that always kept the family entertained. He always shared with the family and friends his famous quote, "We all we got!" and he professed his love in his quote, " I love all the people of the world!" His all-time favorite hobby was fishing and returning home to prep his catch.
