Chris grew up in Tarzana California. In 1967, he served a mission to Argentina for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. On July 1, 1969 he met the love of his life, Elizabeth Ann Birdsall. They were married on October 18, 1969 in the Los Angeles Temple. They were blessed with two beautiful daughters, Valerie and Jennifer, who Chris cherished very much. He loved his family and was the best husband and father. He was a great example of strength, love and patience.

He was also known as the “Balloon Man” for many years. He loved to embellish parties and blow up a balloon for any child in the neighborhood that came by.
