Chris was a great guy, classmate, also known as Koot. He would help anyone in need and was well liked. When he entered a room everyone was glad to see him. What I enjoyed most was his ability in any discussion to reason, to debate and to bring out all factors that were meaningful. We laughed, learned and had  great camaraderie. He is missed and may he rest in peace.

I second Rabbit's comments.  RIP, Chris.

Great person, with a great sense of humor and attitude towards life.  I am sure Al Meszaros seconds my comments, since he was Koot's high school classmate at Edison HS in NJ.  They would often mention Susan Serandon, their high school contemporary who, as you all know, went on to fame in Hollywood.  Like they say: "You can't go wrong with people like these."

Koot was my best friend at PMC! We met in Rook year in the Qualitative Chemistry Lab. He was working on the experiment based on Color precipitates or solution. I was asking Koot a lot of questions about the colors. He finally got annoyed and asked, "what are you color blind?" I said " in fact I am since first grade!" He looked surprised and I said "sorry I bothered him so much." From that day on we were "buds." Koot was a worrier, unfortunately. We got over it by going to Pete's in our junior and senior year. Boy di we hate P-Chem at 8AM 3 days a week! We almost flammed out first half of second semester our senior year. We really had to catch up the second half! Fortunately, we did! Koot went on to work for Defense Supply Agency in Philadelphia and I onto TA job at Arizona and then to Army. We got together as much as possible. We met up again in Wilmington,, DE when he worked for the DuPont-Merk JV and I worked for DuPont in the Paint Busienss.Koot was an expert in Quality and FD&A Regs. I was Product Manager for Automtoive Finsihes. He had a nice family ,but things did not go as well as planned. His wife called me to tell me of his passing. They were separated. Did not get to see him, unfortunately as I was living in Michigan then. I think of him every time I am on this site! Dennis Dixon.

So sorry to hear about Koot. Charlie and I lived across from Denny and Koot our rook year.  Lt.  Whitesell had the adjacent room and used pound on Koot & Dennys wall sending them for every errand there was.  I remember Koot always being happy and friendly all 4 years.

Koot was a wonderful friend and fraternity brother. We enjoyed many laughs and good times. He was always able to find the "good" in any situation or person. He will deifianately be missed. RIP my buddy.
