Chris was a wonderful person with great knowledge on Combines. He always used to discuss his harvesting experience with me as I always used to ask him about Combines. We had long conversations in the factory regarding Combines and techniques in farming. May his soul rest in peace.

To the kids: and family, Chris was a wonderful man, he came down to the torque crib daily, and always had a smile on his face and a joke to tell. I know you will all miss him as we will at Harvester!!! He never complained, and was always one to talk. Always remember that he had your best interest in mind. It wasn't easy, and he did have a lot of plans. God Bless, my prayers as all of Harvester are with you. He Loved You Very MUCH !!!!!!!!!!

I have worked closely with Chris the past year or so.. I am shocked and saddened by his passing. He was an inspiration and a great guy to work with. My sympothies go out to his family. In hard times and good, Chris always made the world a little happier place.
