Chris was born at Glen Cove Hospital. He went to St Patrick’s School and went to Glen Cove High School. He loved to drive trucks. As soon as he learned how to drive, he was at his cousin Robby William’s towing shop. After doing this for a couple of years, Chris wanted to drive something bigger. Chris got all his licenses to drive a tractor trailer. Whatever Chris drove he definitely could handle with such ease.
In 2007, he sold his truck and decided to work close to home. He began working for a union in construction. But more importantly, he was still able to drive trucks. Chris loved to go upstate with his close friends (from driving on the road and Glen Cove). He loved to drive quads upstate. He was compassionate, caring, giving and kind hearted. Chris was always there when a friend needed him. His kind words were “not a problem.” He will be forever in our hearts. Visiting was held at Dodge-Thomas Funeral Home, Glen Cove.
