This was a tough one to take in for everyone who knew Chris. Ever since we were little kids there was never a dull moment with you. As kids, running around trying to see how much we could get away with, to adults coaching or kids together and building what we called our Dynasty. You'll be forever missed Chris, but never forgotten. Love you bro. Tasha, Caleb n Court, Nemitz family is a call away. Love you all.
