1944 – 2015 went to be with his Lord early on December 21st. Born February 12th in Hindenburg, Germany, Chris emigrated to Canada with his family in 1957; he graduated from UBC in 1970 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. A quiet & gentle man, he married in 1967, then moved to Vancouver Island with his young family in 1974 and opened his own business, Cowichan Accounting.
Strong in his faith and his love for his family, he devotedly served as an elder in the church throughout his life. A clever man with a very dry sense of humour, Chris didn’t say much, but when he did, you listened.
Survived by Lynda, wife of 48 years; sons David (Michelle), Paul (Corrinne), daughter Jennifer (Allan), and chosen son Nathan (Colleen); grandchildren Isla, Anya, Christian, Madeleine, Rebecca, Tyus, Alecsa, and Deryn; and sisters Gabrielle and Micheline.
“So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.” (1 Corinthians 15:54)
Service to be held Saturday, January 2nd 2016 at 1:00 pm, Cornerstone Christian Church, Vimy Hall, 3968 Gibbins Road, Duncan, BC.
