Chris raced at the Orange County speedway with his brother, Mark, as a young adult. He married his wife Allison in 1993. Chris worked at Orange County as a Network Administrator for 9 years. 

Chris loved his family. He enjoyed taking his son, Carson, to baseball tournaments. He loved racing his RC cars with his friends at tournaments. You would often find him taking care of his truck or working on his RC cars, while watching Carolina games. He was a huge Tarheels fan, as well as a NASCAR fan. His idol was Dale Earnhardt. Chris was a very soft, kind and welcoming person. 

He is survived by his wife Allison; his children Carson and Courtney; his mom Donna; his brother Mark; his birth-mother Shirley; as well as a large extended family. He is also survived in memory by his many friends; from Damascus, from racing at the speedway or RC, and the people he worked with. He was loved by many and will be missed dearly. His father, Kenneth, passed away in 2020, and will be welcoming Chris into heaven with open arms.
