An Olympian

With the opening ceremonies for the London 2012 Olympics just the other day it caused me to remember the role Chris played in the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics.  Chris was a volunteer for the Paralympic games.  As a volunteer, he spent many hours at several different venues. I remember him wearing his Olympic coat for several winters following 2002. If volunteering was an Olympic event, Chris would of definitely got the gold. 

I remember came to see me at work one Saturday morning during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.  I asked him why he was so tired.  He responded that he had been up all night watching different events. Chris loved to watch and cheer on the US athletes. 

Chris always went for the gold in whatever he did!
