Following his mission, he attended BYU-Idaho (formerly Rick’s College) and Westminster College. He married Christi Martin in the Bountiful Temple. They became the proud parents of Madison and Gillian, their two beautiful girls. Chris worked as a project management professional and enjoyed associating with the best and brightest colleagues and friends imaginable.
