During high school Chris and I worked together at Busse's greenhouse between Elm Street and Northwest Highway and went to the District 214 horticulture class that was at Rolling Meadows High School. We had a lot of fun. One time we got signed up to teach some grade school class about gardening. Chris and I caught this little sunfish out of the pond behind Memory Gardens cemetery. Chris carried that dead fish in his back pocket all day and pulled it out to show the kids how the native Americans would put a fish at the base of a corn plant for fertilizer. I lost track of him shortly after high school. I tried to track him down a few times but could never find him.

Great story Brian.  I remember Chris from hanging around the halls at PHS and from taking various classes together. He always had a smile on his face and a kind comment to make.  59 is way too young to pass and to leave behind a family..

I fondly remember so many smiles, laughter, and growing through..."back in the day" life. Chris, with his green thumb"ssmileyhelped decorate our apartments outdoor patio,2nd floor, with plants and flowers, to win a free months rent, besides bringing beauty to a concrete space two stories up! I experienced his talent. Quarry days, everyone remembers those! Then remember when WI drinking age was 18? More than once, Chris & I would find a off the main road farmers field, and set up his tent, to let the "buzz" go away!! Very innocent days & I wish I could have said "hi" once more, and met his family! Peace my old friend!!!
