I was very sad to hear about the loss of Chris.  We had some great times in college working together at Mr. Steak.  I was glad Chris was able to be in my wedding party in 1984.  He was a funny, friendly and generous person.  I still have the Nishiki 12-speed bicycle he talked me into buying almost 40 years ago, and the leather handle wraps he gave me for it.   My thoughts and prayers go out to the Stahlbaum family.

My prayers go out to Chris' family.  I am still in shock to know that Chris has left us so early.  I worked with him and he always had time to help fix issues, help understand issues and generally share a good laugh on any topic brought to him.  I'll miss Chris, he is a hard person to replace and I know he had an impact on everyone who crossed paths with him.  God Bless and RIP my friend, we miss you.

I am very saddened by the loss of Chris.  My prayers and sympathies go out to his family and all that loved him.  I worked with Chris for many years at Severstal.  We would joke around in his office, give our boss Cam a hard time, hit up Baileys for fantasy football, and many other great memories.  You will be missed, Chris!
