Chris was a US Veteran who served in the National Guard and United States Army since he was 18 years old. While stationed in Korea, Afghanistan and Germany, he became fluent in German and Korean. When Chris wasn’t inside playing his favorite video games, he loved being outdoors traveling, fishing, and snowboarding. Chris loved to listen to music, especially rock and heavy metal. He was a big kid at heart who loved to cut up and play pranks on people. Chris never met a stranger and anyone who met him, loved him and his personality.
