Thirty years ago, Chris moved to Florida, had a great life and made many lasting friendships.
Chris loved the beach and his daily bike rides, where he would always see and acknowledge his fellow beach lovers. This was his routine and he treasured these encounters. He loved the people in his community and they loved him. Chris was affectionately known as the “Mayor” of the beach.
Chris always said he loved his job as a waiter/bartender because of the people, but he found his niche as a trivia host and that is where he excelled. He hosted numerous trivia shows at various locations around Jacksonville Beach.
Chris was a simple man who was known for his charm, which he inherited from his dad. For the past 25 years, Chris and his dad travelled to Clearwater for Phillies’ Spring Training.
Christmas was Chris’s favorite time of the year. He always came home to be with his family, wearing his Santa Hat, which he only took off to sleep.
Chris was an avid fan of the Eagles, Phillies, 76ers, and Flyers.
He attended Cardinal O’Hara High School, Penn State University, and Millersville University.
