Chris was born March 23, 1986. He was baptized in Big Pond, Cape Breton (his home away from home) on July 11, 1986. At 4 years of age the family moved to Quesnel. Chris attended Dragon Lake Elementary School , Shiraoi Junior High School ( Japan ), Maple Drive Junior Secondary School and Quesnel Secondary School . Chris was lost to this earth on November 1, 2004 in a tragic accident when the vehicle he was driving hit a moose.

His friends and teachers were the motivation for this project. Chris was lucky as he had many friends. Chris also deserved his many friends. He had a gentle soul and he genuinely cared about people. His death made it clear that he cared for more than just the "cool kids". He had time for everybody. Chris would have enjoyed your interest in him and his music. Thank you for helping keep his spirit alive.

Our family cheered for Chris as a soccer player, football player, basketball player and volleyball player. We loved cheering him on, and he was a great athlete. But the reality of it was that Chris wasn't really a 'jock' at heart. Deep down inside, at his core, he was a musician.

Chris spent many, many hours listening to music and owned many cds. He loved all those old hard Rock bands like AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and Nirvana. These cds were not downloaded, pirated copies, they were treasured purchases! In addition, Chris had a much softer side. He loved the acoustic sounds of Cat Stevens, Jack Johnson, Harry Chapin and Ben Harper. He had mixed CD's for everything. Titles included, Dishwashing Tunes, Car Driving Tunes #1 -9, Kick Ass Tunes #1 -31 as well as numerous other inventive titles that we will leave to the imagination.

Chris wrote a lot of songs. When he went on a camping trip with his cousins he came back and wrote a song. When he had a romantic interest, he wrote a song. He would always make the entire family go down to his bedroom when he finished a song. Somebody would always ask, "Is this another one of those songs about you hiding out in your bedroom, playing your guitar".

He really just loved to make music. He never wrote a song about becoming a famous musician. He wasn't one bit concerned about learning how to entertain and speak to an audience. For him, it was about the music. He thought that music always spoke for itself. To Chris life was just one sweet melody after another. His set on this earth was much too short.
