I wish I had known Chris better, but I was still very glad to have known him. He could be wickedly funny, not like anyone else I've met and I doubt I ever will.

I am still in total shock! I have been in disbelief, I’m waiting for you to reply to my messages from Sunday! Who is going to try and out drink me now! You were the man, the boss (as I liked to call you) You made a real impact on your gaming family, we won’t forget you! You inspired so many of us, I am heartbroken that we won’t get to have that drink! My biggest regret is not coming out sooner! Fly high in the clouds lovely and may you forever be at peace! Love, as always, Vamps <3

A man of strong convictions, a good friend, a great neighbor, has been taken from us to early. The loss of his strength of character, passionate opinions, & sharp humor makes todays Sun less radiant, air more heavy, sorrow more abundant. I thank you Chris for times we had together. I mourn You. God Bless & keep you, even if to soon.

I’ve known Biggs since 2014 from Ballpark Village. We became friends, and at one point he allowed me a place to stay when I needed help. Biggs always had a heart of gold and a smile with that little smirk to go with it. I’m grateful to have seen him the last time I was in St Louis. Condolences to his family and share the love with all his friends.
