Praying for all of you ! Chris was a great dad and friend to all of us . We met Chris  when our son Josh started playing baseball with Connor . We  all become baseball family almost instantly! Alot  time we all spent at the baseball field and boys hanging out . Even though they moved from Sanford to be closer to his family we all remained in contact . When we received  the news yesterday pur hearts broke for all of you . One thing we can say he was a hard working man and he would do anything for anyone .  He was such a proud dad and granddad and talk about all of you !

Chris was one of the best superintendents I have ever worked with. He was always willing to take the extra time to explain how things worked and was understanding of mistakes. Not only that, he was an extremely kind, funny, and enjoyable person to be around. I owe a lot of my success to Chris and am so sorry for your loss. He will be deeply missed. 
Chris was an awesome guy. I had the pleasure to work with (and learn so much from) him. Chris was great to be around, and he made a tough job a lot easier with his positive outlook and his humor. I know Chris was truly truly proud of his kids, we always loved hearing the stories about them. I am very sorry for the Frye family's loss, Chris will be missed by everyone.
From the family of Bryson Thomas -Connor (Anakin as well as the other brothers and family) we  are so terribly sorry for the passing of Chris. We all met many years ago when Connor and Bryson started playing baseball together. We all became "The Stars Family". Chris was an amazing dad to his boys and a great friend. He would do anything in the world for his boys and always talked about the grands. We hated that they moved back to Burlington but Chris did what was best for him and the boys. Chris will be missed. Rest easy friend. Connor and Anakin-y'all are always welcome here. Please stay in touch with Bryson.

Judy and Family,

One of the most knowledgeable superintendents that I worked with while at Crowder. Even with the stresses and pressures of the job, he would take the time to example how or why he was performing work a certain type of way and what the parts and pieces were for. For someone that worked a lot in the office, it meant a lot to me that he had the patience to explain this stuff to me and helped me grow and learn a lot. He taught me more than he probably even knew. I always enjoyed hearing about his family and know they meant the world to him. He will be missed and my condolences to the family. 
Wow what an impressive guy! Wish that I could have had the chance to have known him! I do know that his family and friends will miss him dearly! He had to be a dedicated guy to have gained the outstanding title of Eagle Scout! My prayers 🙏 🙏🙏🙏 and thoughts are sent to the family and friends!
John Snipes
Our deepest sympathy to the family. Prayers for the family.
