Simply put, Chris loved "Hot Rods". Spending many years working for All-Star Autos Chris knew how to detail a car. He had a following and if there ever was a black car that needed to be detailed, Chris was the man to go to. He loved La Porte's monthly cruise night and would drive Lincolnway in his big yellow truck over and over with his Dad. Chris also owned a 37 Dodge pick-up with a phase his Dad stole from him stating, "Wasted Wages". Chris took a lot of pride in the work he did and as told, he never met a stranger. He enjoyed bowling with his Dad. was a repo man at one time, a bouncer, and a body builder. He had a special friend Heather Fritch he enjoyed spending time with her.
