He was an avid golfer and golf coach to many and was a member of Owasco Country Club. He enjoyed hunting and spending time at this hunting lodge in Montezuma. He was an enthusiastic fan of the Clemson Tigers and a communicant of St. Alphonsus Church. He cherished his time he spent with his family and friends and he will be missed by many.

In addition to his parents, Kris was predeceased by his father-in-law, Robert Guter.

Friends are invited to visit the family from 3 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21 at Sacred Heart Church, 90 Melrose Road, Auburn. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 1 p.m. Wednesday at St. Alphonsus Church, East Genesee Street. Burial will be in St. Joseph's Cemetery.

The omission of flowers is requested by the family as it was Kris' wish to have contributions made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, 5005 Campuswood Drive, East Syracuse, NY 13057 or to the Hospice of the Finger Lakes, 1130 Corporate Drive, Auburn, NY 13021.

The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to Dr. Jeff Kirshner and to the entire hematology/oncology team for all the great care given to Kris.
