Chris passed away last night at 11:03 PM in a St. Petersburg, Fl. hospice facility with his new wife, Carianne Finney, by his side. Chris played bass guitar in a band, often with Carianne. He'd made his living in yacht painting and repair, which he had to abandon for health reasons. He was a student at St. Petersburg College through last semester, always seeking to improve himself. He'll be gretly missed by his musician and sailing friends in Florida, his sister Sybil Zikmund of Boulder, Colorado, and the friends he made out here in California on vacations.
Carrianne found countless ways to make the end of his life more comfortable. The accompanying photograph shows him with the new dog she helped him find at the pound six weeks ago.
