Chris was a graduate of Kenosha’s Tremper High School, where he served as manager for a variety of athletic teams. Later, he was employed as a utility clerk in the grocery industry, holding jobs at Pick & Save in Kenosha and Safeway in Tucson, among others. Chris was an avid sports fan who enjoyed following the Cubs, Brewers, Packers and Bears. He also derived enjoyment from collecting miniature cars and sports cards.
