Chris graduated from William and Mary College with a bachelor's degree in business in 1974, and received his MBA from George Washington University in 1981.

Chris was a member of St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Ijamsville, MD. For many years, he sang in the church choir and was active with the music ministry. An avid musician, Chris was a vocalist and guitarist in Electric Tooth and Rocking Horse, two college rock bands.

He loved camping, dinners out with family, trips to the beach, his dogs, and was an avid Washington Football Team and Baltimore Orioles fan. Above all, he loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.

Chris was loved by all and will be greatly missed.
