I knew Chris through my dependence on him professionally. He took care of bracing my weak right leg from 2007 to 2018. He was not only competent, but unfailingly gentle, kind, and reliable. I entrusted him with my patients and friends, when they needed the skills which he possessed, and because I knew that he would always receive them with his fundamental courtesy and decency. When I last saw him, he let me know that he was going through a sad, hard time because of his impending divorce. In the end, he was overwhelmed by it. I wish I had known how to help him. I ache for his children, and I want them to know that he was both respected and loved by the many people that he had helped.
