You were the greatest teacher of our time. May have taken me a good 10 years to realize it ;) But thank you for all you taught me. Life long lessons!

I am so sad to hear of Chris's death. He and my husband, Jim Hanks, were such good buddies, with their interest in British sports cars. I'm sure Jim was glad to welcome him home! I know they are together now, talking MGAs and MGBs and planning a tour around the clouds. My condolences to the family.

I did not know Chris Personally, just from the MGEXP Forum. We traded information a time or two. Always courteous. Sorry for your loss. Joe

I'm terribly sorry and saddened for Chris's loss! He is remembered fondly from afar by many who got to know him through his many MGB Experience posts and equally by many from close to Pendleton through club and show activities. Please take some modicum of comfort in knowing how many miss him and recall with great affection his contributions to all who shared a same affection for automobiles and motorcycles. A true gentleman.
With great sympathies and heartfelt condolences, Jim Macaulay

Being a British car nut as Chris was, I met him many years ago on various car BBS. Never had the opportunity to meet him in person to shake his hand. We kept in touch discussing care woes and life in general, through emails etc. A patient and good person he was.

'Bon courage' to his family and friends as they and we work through the loss. All I can add is to celebrate his soul.

Thank you for teaching me so much and being so compassionate about life. You left a lasting impression on me that I've utilized growing up into my own unique self. I'll never forget your Grateful Dead t-shirts, red converse and putting up a pirate flag at school.
You will be missed.

Years ago Chris and I served on local union committees. He had a sharp eye for details and a much needed sense of humor. At school, I know the kids loved his science experiments and projects. He will be missed by many. My condolences to Chris' family and friends.

After many wonderful exchanges with Chris on MGExperience, I finally met him at Biggs Junction, Or in June 2013 on the way to Corvallis for MG 2013. He was undergoing chemo in Portland and on his way home to Pendleton when he recognized my car from photo’s on MGE and came running over calling my name to say hi. Our first ( and in fact subsequent) visit was brief, but his zest for life was infectious, and our time together inspiring.
Our paths crossed a few times more at a couple of Brits In The Sticks in Canada, MG conventions in Oregon and Kentucky, Walla Walla Wa when he brought me a head gasket for my MG when broken down en route to San Diego, Ca, and finally at Garry’s Run just 5 months before he left us.
Chris was unique, positive, inspiring, genuine and generous to a fault. I will miss him dearly.
Have fun riding around behind the pearly gates with Garry in your MG’s Chris.
Safety Fast bro’.
