Chris attended Sapulpa Public Schools and Art School. He was affiliated with the Baptist church and was saved and baptized at a young age. He worked with his dad and they owned King Hag Kustom. What a wonderful talent Chris had with his love of old cars – he made cars beautiful again. He had a gift for seeing the diamond in the rough. He called it metal surgery. There were nights that he had worked all day and would fall asleep in the shop.
As a young child he loved to draw and had such a soft heart, always caring for others and wanting to help. He and his brother Paul went on many trips with their grandparents; to the lake, fishing, Jelly Stone, Shepherd of the Hills and Spavinaw. There were always many stories when they returned from a trip. He played soccer, T-ball, was a cub scout and loved drawing. He had an old soul and the kindest heart. He was truly a blessing to his family. He loved Chris Isaak, many oldies, rockabilly music, Star Wars, PacMan, Battle Star Galactica and Star Trek.
