    Our condolences to Chris’ entire family. Chris was very special to Cookie and Me. The main quality (he had many) Chris was “He was his own person” a true Colorado Mountain Man. He was extremely intellig, which allowed him to successfully carve his own nitche in the technical world. Chris, you will be sorely missed, we love you much. Cookie and Roy

    This is truly a loss of a great man, son, brother, husband, dad and grandfather. My employer and primarily I, worked with Chris and George, Simon for a number of years. Chris was incredibly smart, extremely knowledgeable and gifted in all things networking and tech and was always willing to assist me in troubleshooting and resolving issues as well as educating me (which was no small feat).

    Chris was always a unique soul and had an incredible outlook and take on things. This is why I aways appreciated him and really, all who worked with Axis Internet. They too like Chris possessed tremendous personality, loyalty and passion for what they do.

    Sending my love and prayers to the family and friends.

    Respectfully,
    Matt Miller

    I never met Chris in person, but we have had many conversations through the years both technical and personal. I appreciated him and his perspective in both. I had come to consider him a good and dear friend. I will miss our conversations, and wish all his family peace and contentment. You will all be in my prayers. God Bless you all.
