Memories & Candles
My heart was deeply saddened when I heard the news about Chris. I pray that god will comfront you during this time. I loved coaching Chris because he always played so hard. He was a fine young man. It was great to see him coaching with the same passion with which he played. I am still amazed to this day that as an 8th grader he did all the work to get admitted to Darlington. I have many wonderful memories of Chris. He will be missed greatly.

It was an honor brother through and through. You shared so much valuable knowledge and toughness you guided my path on where I am today. I have just heard of the news and this world, the marine corps, and me personally have lost a great man and an outstanding leader but we have gained so much from the time you gave us. Never forget and keep the gates safe my friend.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Even though we didn't get to know Chris, sounds like he was a good Marine, friend, son, and mentor. Keep standing tall and proud Marine. Semper Fi, my friend.

The prayers and thoughts from our family to yours. I lost my son in 2009. Seth was also a Marine and defended our wonderful country until 2009 while serving in Afghanistan. I understand a loss that is so hard to accept. Just know that you raised a fine young man. Once again, our thoughts and prayers go out to you

It was a great honor to have been able to serve with you but an even greater honor to call you a friend. From you, I learned both the passion and privilege of command and for that I am forever indebted. Until we meet again my friend,

I had the honor and privilege of serving with Sgt Mac in Iraq. He was the finest example of a Marine NCO I have had the pleasure of serving with. His knowledge and natural leadership abilities were a godsend to his squad and our platoon. You will truly be missed. Fall in and ensure your Marines are squared away and commence patrolling the streets of Heaven until properly relieved. Semper FIdelis!
