Chris Ballard was born on July 1, 1970.
I met him while he was working as a bouncer at the local bar.
I was very fond of him and wanted to share my memories with him.
Chris was a very laid back person, very happy to laugh, to talk and to have fun with others.
Chris would always have a good time and would always laugh, always get his friends involved, and always take good care of the bar.
He was the nicest person I’ve ever known and would give you a hug even if you were drunk or on drugs.
Chris passed away on June 29, 2020.
I have been following his passing for some time now.
When I first met Chris, I was not sure if I would ever see him again.
It was almost five years ago now and I am still in shock.
My heart breaks every time I think of his smile.
I am very lucky to have known him and would never want to ever lose him.
I would like to thank the entire Ballard family, the entire crew at the bar and everyone who came to see Chris.
The bar was just one of the many places I enjoyed spending my birthday.
I wish Chris and his family all the best in their future.
Chris and I will be forever in their hearts.
I will always remember the many times I was able to walk in the bar after I had been drinking and laughing.
Chris always knew how to make me feel special.
