The family lived in Germany for a short time until returning to Lawton in 1974 where Chris grew up and attended Lawton High School. He also attended Cameron University. Chris worked Security and Loss Prevention for JC Penney and Kmart. He then worked at Scooters for 25 years as Head of Security and later as the General Manager until his retirement. Chris married Dianne Nededog and to that union two sons were born. He coached his sons football, and loved watching them play. As family meant everything to Chris, he enjoyed the family attending Chickasha Christmas lights every year and enjoyed going to their weekly family dinners. He also liked golf, and watching OU Football and Dallas Cowboys. Chris' greatest joy was being "PawPaw" to his grandson and "Mini Me" Christopher, whom he loved spending time with. He will be missed by many friends and family members.
