From there, he received his Associates in Business Management from ABAC. Chris later worked for Dean Tucker Farms as Truck Broker for 18 years. Chris was a man of God and it showed through him and the way he lived. He was an avid fisherman and hunter. In 2011, Chris was blessed with his beautiful wife, Lindsay, and her two girls, Paisley and Addy. Two beautiful girls, that Chris would quickly tell you were his. Two girls that he poured so much love and time into. In 2015, God gave Chris the miracle of a son. One of his greatest blessings, Lofton, or as Chris called him, “Bubby Do” was born in August 2015. These two, together, were advanced block and Lego builders, cartoon watchers, candy crushers, and “my turn” (nature oat cereal) eaters. Chris was so proud to be a Dad. Chris will truly be missed as husband and father. In 2020, Chris’ cancer returned. He would battle this for 2 years, with his amazing wife and caregiver by his side. Lindsay never gave up hope and stayed true to vows down to every word.
