Dear Family of Chris Beers,
My heart hurts for you!! What a beautiful tribute you wrote to your son, brother and friend. He was a wonderful person and I truly loved being around him. We went to the same singles ward in Bountiful before I got married. He always made me laugh; was a hit at one of our singles activities - I think it was a talent night and he entertained us with several impressions. He was truly a talented, gifted person and sure miss him!! I pray that your hearts may be healed and that you may be touched by the sweet love and peace from our Savior, Jesus Christ!!
It is hard to know what to say at this difficult time - you are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve the death of someone so special!
Chris and I became great friends at a Tennessee EFY around 1997, and our friendship continued on. Despite not being in touch greatly over the years, I've always considered him amongst my best friends. It was one of my greatest pleasures for him to meet and have lunch with my parents, sister, and I.
I send my heartfelt sympathies especially to the Beers family. I send my sympathies also to the countless others who, like me, feel a never-ending sense of appreciation and love to such a great friend.
Sincerely, Jonathan Chipman
Dear Chris, words cannot express the realm of emotions I feel at the moment. On one hand, I miss you dearly. You were the beaming light of my life always encouraging me to be more loving and compassionate. On the other hand, I'm happy that you were able to move on away from the "pains" of this world. You were ah-ah AMAZING! I feel honored to have spoken with so many people who were touched by you. Without you, I don't think I'll ever be the same, but I know you'll be watching and guiding me from above just as you did down here on this Earth. It's nothing short of a miracle that we met and I hope that you and Jade will welcome me with open arms when the time comes to make my journey back home. I knew you better than anyone else and have seen the impact you have had on people and am thankful everyday for the cherished memories we had together. Take care My Boy!

Chris was our neighbor during the past few years, and he became our dear friend. We are reclusive by nature, but it was impossible not to become acquainted with Chris. His infectious smile made it so natural to be his friend. We came to love both Chris and Ian. We shared a common love for cats with Chris, among other things. Chris was not simply a good neighbor, he was a good friend and he will be sorely missed. Our tears now wash the footprints where Chris once walked, but we are reminded that the cracks in a broken hearts is where the sun shines through. Chris would understand that.
My deepest sympathy to Chris's family. I read his story and it is heartbreaking. God loves all of his children. I am so saddened at your loss. May God comfort and hold you close.

We served with Chris in the Texas Fort Worth Mission. As his mission president, I particularly appreciated his standard of excellence. He was a dedicated, spiritual missionary. He loved, and was loved by all who knew him, church members and non-members.
We will always remember Chris as a true disciple of Jesus Christ.

Chris was the best manager back in the day at Woods Cross. He was one of the happiest kids I have known. I am so sorry for your loss! He was such a great person and friend.

I was so sad to hear the news of Chris passing away...my heart goes out to his family, they are WONDERFUL people and they raised a wonderful young man, it was way too soon for him to go. Chris always had a smile on his face and was one of the happiest people I remember from our high school/growing up days....may his family be comforted at this time.
Uncle Wayne, Uta & family, My tears flow freely as I share in your great loss. Be proud of this beautiful man you raised. Your did well. A genuine angel. Chris, thank you for your smile, your laugh, your sunshine. I am heart broken, you were heart broken. We love you, rest in peace. Give Jeff a high five for me! Hugs....
I was so grateful to come to know him and from the very first moment we met he shared with me that smile that was so characteristic of him. His love and compassion for everyone who knew him will be a remembrance of him and always be alive in our hearts. He was a truly example of love and kindness and because of him I came to understand better the meaning of Jesus Christ for all of us. My heart and prayers ares with him and his family at this time.
Although I only met Chris a couple of Weeks ago, I already knew from Ian what an amazing person he is. I wish I'd had more time to get to know him in this life, but I'm grateful for the brief time I had, and I look forward to getting to know him much better through Ian and his other friends here, and when we meet again in the next life.
Chris had and infectious laugh. I don't think I ever remember him not smiling and laughing, except when he was bearing his testimony of the gospel and of the savior. I look forward to seeing that smile again someday. Until then he'll be missed by many.
I went to school with the twins and remember their smiles and glow they brought to the halls. I am saddened by the loss of Chris at such a young age. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time! Sincerely Cristin Terasa, Las Vegas, NV
I worked with Chris at the Church Office Building for several years. He was so accepting of everyone and was a joy to be around. His fun-loving attitude, smile, and humor were contagious. He was extremely talented and had an eye for the beautiful. He framed several pictures in my home. Now, they will be all the more special to me. When I see them, I will lovingly remember him and the great person he is. May his family take comfort in the exceptional life he led and the numerous lives he touched. He will always stand as an example of Christ-like love and compassion. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
this has been the hardest time since ur loss, U are the world to me. I loved being around u. I hope there will be a lagoon in heaven I love you as a friend lots of tears
My deepest sympathy and most sincere prayers are extended in behalf of your family. I love the way everyone in your family reaches out to make others feel important. I just keep thinking of Chris' energy and friendly nature. He was always so friendly and made sure to make his rounds to acknowledge every family member that attended Larisch Family Parties.
I pray that Heavenly Father will send you strength and comfort as He and His Son carry you through this hard time. I imagine Christ holding Chris in His comforting arms. I love your family.
I first met Chris at the Church offices, when he worked in Travel. He was like a ray of sunshine and always had a genuine smile and a greeting that brought you into his amazingly large circle of friends. I loved looking at the pictures taken on his trips. I am so truly sorry for your loss, President George Albert Smith said..."I mourn with you but also congratulate you that you have had the companionship of this wonderful person ...and that it will continue through the eternities." May you be comforted and blessed. Sincerely Connie Gough
I am deeply saddened of hearing of your loss. Chris was that smiling little kid I remember laughing and up to mischief with my little brother. Rest in peace my dear friend and know that you will not be forgotten you touched many lives and I am a better person for having known you. My thoughts are with you all my extended family of neighbors Mr. & Mrs Beers as well as Debbie, Kim and Carey. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Give Jeff a hug and sing those Beach Boy songs loud.
