Chris had many passions in life. Family, music and food, were among his favorites, and he took any opportunity he could to combine these passions.
He worked many years in the restaurant business, where he learned most of his culinary skills. He often prepared delicious dinners with his family and shared pictures of his creations and recipes with hundreds of friends and family on social media. Recently, he became a self-made farmer with his vegetable and fruit garden to make sure he and his family always had plenty of fresh ingredients during the pandemic.
Chris had such a love of music. He posted over 800 song recordings, including some original titles, online through multiple sources. He would spend hours singing with his family and teaching them how to play instruments. He could also be found in any local karaoke bar at home or when traveling. Everyone knew him as one of the greatest singers in the crowd.
Chris was owner of his own technology business, The Tech gods.
Being a business owner, and working in the field of electronics, took Chris all over the country. He was able to visit places for work that many people could only wish to see. He shared those experiences with those he loved.
He was devoted to helping people. Chris organized many events that benefited his local community. He became President of the Quartz Hill Chamber of Commerce, helped with friends to collect and contribute clothes and blankets to needy families in the community, and was instrumental in organizing the annual Almond Blossom Festival.
Funeral service will be held at Our Lady of Holy Angels on Monday at 9:30 mass with the Reverend Monsignor Mark Condon officiating. Please meet directly at the church. A private farewell will take place for the immediate family only at Cedar Lawn Chapel.
