During his free time, Chris enjoyed hanging out with his friends. From a very young age Chris loved cars and could tell you what kind it was. When his mom had to take him to work at Advance Auto Parts because there was no one to watch him, Chris would impress his mom’s co-workers. All the workers at Advance Auto Parts loved Chris. In fact, everyone who met Chris feel in love with him. He had such a loving caring spirit.
