    I am so thankful to have gotten a chance to know Chris in working with him at NewsBank. He was a kind and thoughtful human with a great sense of humor and an expansive knowledge of movies and TV series.

    He was always generous in offering help when needed, offering a laugh through a story or general conversation, and with a smile and greeting in passing by.

    Condolences to Lesley and all of Chris’ friends and family. He will be missed.
