Christopher loved his family even the ones he didn’t have much or any contact with. He shared fond memories of them all. He loved computers, his dog Lightning who we had to say goodbye to in 2012. Christopher was very frugal, which made him prosperous to take care of his family which was his main purpose in life. He would say “I paper bagged my lunches just to save a few pennies.” He loved watching Fox News, and spending time with his family.
