They loved traveling the country together and spending time at any beach or golf course. He most recently worked for TW Perry in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Chris was loved by all who knew him, and he lit up any room with his presence. He made friends anywhere he went, and he loved good conversation and stories. He had an infectious laugh and made everyone smile and feel like family.

A celebration of Chris' life will be held on Wednesday, August 21, with a calling hour from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. in St. John's Church, 40 Temple Street, Worcester followed by a funeral Mass at 11 a.m. in the church. Burial will be private.

The family asks that flowers be omitted and instead suggests donations be made to the St. John's Food for the Poor Program, 44 Temple St., Worcester, 01604.

The Athy Memorial Home, 111 Lancaster St., Worcester is directing arrangements.
