As a child, Chris enjoyed sitting in the creek with our dog Coco, swimming in the pool, playing with blocks, puzzles, sensory items, tearing paper, and playing the "catch me game". Chris attended several schools for special needs until finding his forever home at Opportunity Living in Lake City, IA on July 12, 1996. There is where he learned a lot, enjoyed many activities, and made many friends with staff and residents. Chris had many OCDs, he was very adamant about the things he wanted, through the years staff learned his idiosyncrasies and learned to live in his world. One of his favorite past times was swinging. He enjoyed it so much that he had a personal swing in his bedroom. He was very fond of his junk food and meals in general. Chris was a private man. Chris passed away on July 13, 2022, at the age of 46 at home in Lake City, IA where he resided for 26 years.
