Kris managed Gateway FS Inc in Ferrin, he enjoyed his work and was able to talk endlessly about his favorite subject of crops. He was a passionate fan of the Chicago Blackhawks and Cubs and Tennesee Titans. He enjoyed anything outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, and playing softball. His best trait was his gift of gab, he could talk to anyone, anywhere, about anything. Above all else, Kris loved his children, Keaton, Kyler, and Ainslie. His favorite activity was watching them play sports and coaching when he could. His children were his world. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
