He was also a very loyal and beloved coach for over thirty-five years in Harrison County Schools including Shinnston Middle School, Notre Dame High School, Liberty High School, and most recently at Bridgeport High School with seven consecutive baseball state championships. His love of the games led him to volunteer with his Grandson’s youth football travel team. He was an avid WVU fan and loved attending games with his cousin and best friend, Frankie Marino. Beyond all of his life accomplishments, Chris held his faith and family above all. He was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Parish.
