The funds will go to supporting the scholarship fund honoring Chris's memory and dedication to public service.
Chris was a wonderful husband, friend, brother, son, and American. He dedicated his life to helping others through his coaching and protecting his country through his work. He is an alumni for Lynchburg College and loved his time there. He credited the school and its professors as helping shape him to become the man he was. We have set up a scholarship honoring his memory and love of Lynchburg and his belief in giving back.
He died tragically on April 28th, 2010 at the age of 30 from eosinophilic vasculitis and myocarditis. It is a rare and random disease and we need more research to understand the triggers and causes of this disease so that others will not have to expereince our loss.
Chris was one of the most wonderful men I have ever known. My five years of friendship, dating, engagement, and marriage to him were the happiest of my life. To find a way to fill the void he has left I want to dedicate time and money to making sure that Chris's life, though short and wonderful, still impacts others.
