I have missed Kris at Saturday morning ham radio breakfasts for the past few years. I was sad to hear of his passing when Dave Spillett sent me an email today. Breakfasts were always interesting when Kris was there.

I still have a 2 meter handheld that I bought from Kris a long time ago. Kris was the only one with enough knowledge to program the thing!

My deepest condolences to you and the kids,

Dave Hintz

Me deepest condolences on the loss of Kris. He was the inspiration for my interest in
Classic British cars. He helped me with my first two MG's. I purchased my third MG B
From Kris in 1978. He would always ask about it. Know that you and your family are in
My thoughts and prayers.

I worked with Kris at Time Warner Cable and am saddened to hear of his passing. My thoughts are with Holly and the children with hopes their memories will give them comfort.

Kris was not just the smartest guy in the room he was accommodating, helpful, friendly and a joy to be around. He was the kind of person you wanted to go see with a problem, not only because you knew he would solve the problem but because you'd get to spend some time with him.

My deep condolences

Holly-My most deepest sympathy to you on Kris's passing. He and I worked together at Time Warner and he was a great friend and just a genuine great person whom I had great respect. My fondest memories were when he and I would take breather from all of the chaos and would go to Dunkin donuts, sit have coffee and every conversation would somehow end in how much he hated the Yankees. I miss those days and our many good times together. God bless you and your family.

I was friends with kris during the youth center years in Liverpool. I remember him driving his VW van with a bunch of us to a concert in Ithaca. But I mostly remember his impishness and beautiful red hair. He was so cool. Xo

I was saddened to hear of Kris's passing. I knew him over many years of our ham radio breakfast gatherings. He was always very helpful with ham radio issues and explaining the mysteries of cable TV! So sorry for your loss.

We were friends at the youth center. When we learned to play soccer he already knew how to play well (jealous). He was the first person I knew who would ride his 10 speed bike loooong distance (I stayed in the neighborhood). We both bought used MG-B's and he taught me how to start mine when it rained. Glad we got to reconnect (on line) after so many years. Sorry we did not get to catch up. Will miss you.

Kris was close friends with Dick (Rick) Noboa RIP, and myself. Such fond memories of bike riding, Johnson Park, the Youth Center but mostly playing cards. You will be so missed. A golden friendship. Peace my friend.
