Having Chris work with me at Fluor for almost a year I came to know what a phenomenal individual he was.Having worked in the Oil and Gas industry for over 40 years you meet many people.Chris was one of them who I came to call my close friend as we shared many stories and experiences together. I was always amazed at his wealth of practical knowledge which we rarely see these days.
His legacy will continue on in the numerous facilities he has built over time with the caring insight of a true Pipeliner.
I will not say goodbye Chris my Friend I will say see you on the next Project.
