Christopher’s family would like to say a very heartfelt thank you to the Keleher and Brown family for all the care that was given to Chris during these past two and half years. We know that Chris thought dearly of all of you.
Chrissy enjoyed many activities which included snowmobiling, riding motorcycles, slow pitch softball and mowing lawns around the neighborhood. He took pride in keeping the lawns groomed on the family farm even after the farm was sold. As a young man and even later in life he especially enjoyed helping out his mother with her daily chores. He knew how to clean a house perfectly! His mother even told him he cleaned the house better than his sisters!
We will always remember Chrissy for his carefree happy go lucky life. He had a wonderful smile and was always willing and able to help anyone in their time of need. His family will always remember the stories shared at the dinner table on the family farm.
