I worked with Chris back in the early 90's. He taught me how to be good at the job I now have, Supervising a liner crew. He taught me plastic fusion welding. He would get a kick out of the fact that I run jobs now. Thanks for everything Chris and my condolences to his family. He had issues like we all do but he was a good person, no question.
