Our deepest sympathy to Deanna and family on your and our sad loss of Chris. May you rest in peace Chris. Another angel in heaven. Brian and Debbie Niedzwiecki

My father in law for 27 years how proud you were of your 6 boys and our families and knowing you left behind a solid legacy. In our final conversation I asked if there was anything you needed and you said how wonderful the staff were at Denmark Hospital and you couldn't be anywhere better. Safe journey in Gods hands. Chris, Anne-Maria and Mackenzie-Anne.

Chris was such a kind and hospitable man. I will remember his happy and generous nature and his devotion to his parish and town, with the sharing of his talents and time. He was inspirational. Love and prayers for Deanna and family.

My sympathy to Deanna and the family. A great loss to everyone... will miss our chats , looking around his beautiful garden, sharing a joke or having conversations from the window next door. I know from our conversations that he adored Deanna and his family. A true gentleman with a massive personality. Thinking of you Deanna, always here for you lovely lady. Lena Ericson

We, the Colmans in Warwick, NY, Terry and Liz and Paddy and Anita, and Ann in NJ, have such a great memory of when Chris and Deanna visited, years ago...(the '80's?). We still have the photographs. It was so wonderful, and so much fun, to be together. Our deepest condolences to Deanna and all the family, and the extended family in Australia.

We did some great bike rides from Pemberton to Denmark many years ago. These trips inspired Chris and Deanne to move permanently to Denmark. A man of great faith who walked the talk. Chris loved to chat and we loved to listen to his stories. Will be greatly missed.

Worked and went to University with Chris, we laughed all the way through it. Many great memories including Chris at work walking past me carrying a large sheet of plywood and when asked what he was doing with it he replied he was attending a Board meeting, I never forgot it. A real gentleman with a glint in his eye, always positive and good for a joke, I’ll miss you Chris.

Our deepest sympathies to Deanna and family. It was always lovely when we caught up on our trips to Denmark and we loved our chats and get togethers over the years, whether it was at Goldilocks Cottage or The Three Bears. We will miss his humour and stories, great knowledge of the world, his pride in his handy work and his kind heart. Rest in Peace Chris, old friends are always with us in our hearts and you will stay with us forever.

I am so grateful to have had the chance to reconnect with you and Deanna not long ago during your recent visit to Hobart. While we only had a few hours I'll always remember the happiness that we shared over that pizza and glass of wine, and am so glad to have a recent adulthood memory of you to look back on. Rest in peace knowing you were a service to this world and will be missed by everyone. Your loving grandson, Kobi.
