    I just read the story of Chris' passing on a GP news site. My heart goes out to his whole family. Sounds like he was a kind and loving person who had his life ended much too soon. May you see some justice eventually and perhaps help another family to avoid this kind of senseless heartbreak. Incredibly sad and so very wrong.

    I only met him once in Grande Prairie when I went see his Mom for our 1st date. It went not bad because as an ice breaker I had bought a flower bouquet that was in a ceramic Mustang convertible for his Mom. With the whole Browning family being Mustang fanatics that went over pretty good. After that it was the scrutiny of who is this guy that has come to see his Mom! I was nervous as a polecat thankfully I walked out the door with a grin on my face. I wish there had been a few more of those kind of meetings. My sincere condolences to Ciara and the boys to mom Linda, his father Brent & the rest of the family. I will be at the Port Alberni service to pay my last respects.

    I met Chris working as a scaffolder and could always be sure of a good laugh or chat about his grey border collie, or pics of his car. He showed me how to do e transfers when he bought some bibs from me. Aww the things we remember! Lost too soon brother, Rest In Peace. Your family will be in our prayers.

    Christopher was basically already my son-in-law even though he was not legally married to my daughter. They lived together, ran a home together, and were raising 2 beautiful boys together. They were such a happy family and Chris was such a generous guy for sure. "Chris I love you forever and you will always be my son-in-law. I promise Chris that I will do what I can to help Ciara get through this." One of my best pictures is the one with Chris wearing a headband with Christmas lights last year.
