Sept 13 1982 – July 16 2019
Kris lived out his life by sharing love and laughter with those around him. Kindness is the first adjective that comes to mind by all who loved him. His amazing sense of humour and fun are just some of the most loved qualities that will make living without him feel so empty. With eyes that lit up when he smiled, and a beard that was so glorious it could never be forgotten. Kris had a way of making an impression on everyone who came into his presence. He spent his time playing and watching sports, and grew up with an intense love for farming with his dad. His greatest joy was bringing his two beautiful children Henry and Sadie into the world alongside his wife Terri. His will to fight came from the love he had for his children and the dreams he had to watch them grow up. Kris fought a brave battle with Cancer and passed away on July 16th2019 surrounded by his family who had the honour to love him and to call him husband, son and brother and friend. The loss of Kris is simply too profound, and although living without him seems impossible, the imprint he has made on the hearts of those he has touched will carry us. Until we meet again.
Donations in Kris’s Memory can be made to his children – Henry and Sadie’s College Fund or to Royal University Hospital Palliative Care.
A Celebration of Life for Kris took place July 22,2019 – 1pm at the Northridge Community Center in Martensville.
