The births of his daughters followed in 1988 and in 1990. Chris worked for many years as a designer for Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford, Connecticut, while maintaining a home in Vermont. He was a dedicated and loving father and husband. His family was his constant focus. His favorite saying was "family first, above all else." He lived those words. Always there to lend a hand, words of encouragement and support. Selfless and generous, he reveled in the accomplishments of his family and friends and stood by them in times of sadness. Family gatherings at his home were many and always filled with laughter and good times. He will be greatly missed by the numerous people who loved him. He had a encyclopedic knowledge and passion for US History. He was a member of the 27th Connecticut Volunteers Civil War re-enacting group and was also a French and Indian War re-enactor. He is survived by his loving wife, Denise Williams, his daughters Sarah Williams of Lynchburg, VA and Emily Williams of Newbury.
