He was a big man in both size and character. If you saw him coming you’d know it was Chris with his outstanding big frame glasses, trench coat, facial hair, and ever present suspenders. At home he loved to cook, maybe his Masters in Food Science led him down that path or just perhaps his love of experimenting. He loved to golf and played some of the world’s best courses: Grand Dunes in Myrtle and Pebble Beach. He didn’t waste any time: even his television viewing was for education. He loved the history channel and devoured any readings he could get his hands on especially the encyclopedia and even the dictionary. He loved to live dangerously: a cowboy’s fan in a sea of green.rnLove at first sight happened one summer in Sea Isle. He’d meet a young Cathleen Barry and be engaged in 6 weeks. He was the proud daddy of Chris Jr. “Ross” and Steven Dallas. He is survived by his mother, Mary and brothers: Jay, Kevin, Keith, Kerry, Kirk and Sean.rnCome celebrate 53 great years Friday 6-8 p.m. and Saturday 10-11:30 a.m. at Daley Life Celebration Studio.
