Born and raised in Waukesha, Chris attended Meadowbrook School, Horning Middle School and North High School. After completing a short course at WCTC for auto body repair, Chris continued in this field for several years operating C&C Automotive Repair, the precision Auto Body and Paint.
Chris enjoyed participating in amateur night racing at Union Grove drag strip as well as Harley rides to South Dakota and Wyoming with family and friends. He loved to see the open spaces and wildlife. Christopher’s vast experiences gave him the abilities to paint and repair vehicles, roof a house, fix plumbing, flooring, or hang blinds. He was always willing to help and share his knowledge. Chris’s most recent farming venture was the reintroduction of hemp in S.E. Wisconsin. He was a quite knowledgeable on the subject and proud of his accomplishments.
