Chris was at the bar with his brother to see a concert. Afterwards, a young group got rowdy and when Chris tried to break up the fight, “He got blindsided,” Kathy said. “He got sucker punched and fell and knocked his head. Fractured the base of his skull.”
His death shocked Kathy and their three teenage sons.
“It’s just a big loss for all of us. I don’t know how to be here without him,” Kathy said. “The boys too. There’s just an empty hole. He was the fun. He brought the fun.”
The one step that may help her heal, Kathy says, is to see the person who did this behind bars.
