"We hear the words guts, character, integrity, perseverance, determination, class and heart. Those are the words you lived by. When tragedy struck over and over, you never faltered. You never whimpered. In the end, we are our mother's sons. You are the best man I know, bar none. When I think of you now, my eyes are filled with tears, my broken heart filled with pride. I love you brother, take care of Ma and I will see you soon."

Chris is survived by his brother, Sean M. Allicon, and several uncles, aunts and cousins, and many dear friends. Chris was predeceased by his mother, Patricia E. (McCarthy) Gurry, and her husband, Joseph F. Gurry.
