Donna, Lucina, Christian, and Patrick- Your Dad's smile lit up the room. We always enjoyed his friendly greetings after Mass. You all are in our prayers now and in the days ahead.

If you are lucky, you may get to meet someone who is truly inspirational, who edifies, encourages and inspires those around him. Chris was such a man. From the moment I met him, I knew he was special. When he was my leader, he gave me what I needed to succeed. He showed me how to be not just a better leader and employee, but a better person. Throughout the time I knew him, I never left a conversation with him, without feeling better for having spent time talking with him. He always had something nice to say, or a genuine interest in something I cared about. I will cherish those conversations always. Losing Chris so suddenly is hard. But I will think of him often, remember the wisdom he shared with me, and anticipate the day I see him again in heaven; and I will smile.

Andrew Hammond left a message on May 9, 2024:
Chris was my first roommate at Theta Xi, room 13. A memory that stands out and a story I still tell to this day, are the times Chris, Rick, Eric and I would play the game Blades of Steel. The game was played “full contact”, if you checked a player in the game you checked the player on the sofa. Frequent choruses of the Haams Beer song would be heard full volume anytime a new beer was cracked. Even though we only saw each other a couple times after graduating Purdue, I still considered him a close friend. Chris will be missed by all that knew him. My sincerest condolences to the Frank family. YITB 1379
