Chris was a dear friend and colleage to many people in the Connecticut EMS community. He will be missed by all of us. Here are pictures of his memorial service which took place at the Suffield Volunteer Ambulance Association Zak building.

After everyone was gone and the family had taken the flowers they wanted, the crew was preparing our ambulance for the Suffield Firemens Parade. Someone had the terrific idea to decorate the truck with one of the flower sprays. We felt like Chris was attending one last parade! Chris' ashes were spread according to his wishes, in Long Island Sound.
