Glad to have met you bro. Thanx for the ugly ass lime green velcro. It has a lot more meaning now.

Sad news. I bought his wingsuit from him in January to add to my collection. I will make sure it gets jumped this weekend in his honor.

BSBD Chris, the reserves you packed me saved my life more than once, and I was lucky enough to get to jump with you multiple times when I was still in the sport --- I am very sad hearing this news, and you will be missed.

Blue Skies Chris!

At least you made headlines with that "Shit Eatin' Grin" you loved to sport.

I'm sure there is an endless supply of female tandem students where you are going with "Nice Personalities" as you so eloquently put it...Tongue

Gonna miss you bro....Frown

What a good guy. He made us laugh. Pictured is his amish look along with his first 100 jump pie which I was lucky enough to capture. We hope it makes you smile.
Tricia and I will miss him awful. We mentored him as a student and he became a great friend and highly regarded peer. He worked hard and got almost every rating imaginable.
He was a regular visitor to our home and was like a brother. He couldn't come to the east coast without stopping by for a few days of R&R.
He always had a smile and was always eager to live and play hard. A very down to earth kinda guy who besides skydiving, also taught skiing as snowboarding, as well as base jumped, sailed, surfed and scuba. I didn't know Pat but I know
we lost another couple of the great ones.
Our deepest sympathy to Chris and Pats family and the San Diego and Perris family of skydivers.

I consider myself lucky to have called Chris my true friend. I will cherish the many memories we made together, along with our other friends I consider family. I will always smile when remembering things like doing the "CASA DANCE", our inside joke (with Mark and Captain Mike) "I GOTTA RUSH" exit call and all the great times in freefall, at the DZ, on the slopes, or wherever else we found ourselves. You will truly be missed, but never forgotten. Fly forever free my friend. My heart goes out to all of his family and friends.

A fond memory of Chris.
Andy used to have a dropzone in Holtville, and Chris knew I was going to Glamis to ride dirt bikes in the dunes. Chris organized a jump into Glamis. We were in a Caravan and after everyone got out at Holtville but Chris Stasky, Chris O. and myself, we flew over to Glamis and did a 3 way wingsuit jump into Glamis. (The same suit Chuck Blue just bought.)
Goodbye Chris

For those of you not of facebook:

There will be a memorial ash dive and celebration of Chris' life at Skydive San Diego on Sunday, April 17. I've included some information below that was provided about the day/service.

People should arrive at or before 2pm. The ash dive is scheduled around 4 - 5pm, depending on weather which is why people are asked to come early. There will be a Brazilian style BBQ starting close to sunset and a party to continue throughout the evening. BYOB.

For more information, please reference the memorial page on facebook http://www.facebook.com/...?eid=138092389595597

Sweet send off yesterday. Had close to 100 people in a BFR in the middle of the DZ to watch Chris float off into the bright blue sky. So long friend.

Thanks to Skydive San Diego for hosting the memorial and to Yo-yo for organizing the fitting tribute.

Hey Team mate

You were always a cranky son of a bitch, but you were always real, authentic.

Honored to have shared the skies with you bro. Rest in peace.
