Memories Timeline


  1. CandleImageA broken heart. We met in college became husbands, fathers and grew up together. We shared some pretty tuff times together and had a lot of fun. We always had each other to talk things out. And every time we talked we always had those Wa Ha’s we had when we first met. We were always honest with each other even if it hurt. Will never be able to find a friend like you. You were one of kind. Bigger heart than most people knew because you never took credit for some of the things you did. Strait forward and a style all your own. You were a good friend to all that knew you and you cherished your sons like the proud father you were. I was proud to call you my best friend and I can’t believe you won’t be there for the rest of my journey. I miss you Butch.

  2. CandleImageMy deepest condolence to the de Winter Family and the de Winter sisters, Celia and Sara. Alex and Matthew I know that your Dad loved you guys beyond words. I saw it all the time whether at your home or at Matt’s lake house or whenever there was a get together. Chris was a bigger than life guy and I know you will miss him dearly. Look back on the good times and that’s how I will always remember him. I am praying for Chris and for the family.
