I first met Chris in 1984 and having been in the service industry since then I had interactions with him very often. First at Booth Refrigeration then Baker Equipment and of course Tribles. He always had a certain way he said my name I have always enjoyed how Chris greeting me when I walked into the building and his hearty laughter. He will be missed very much.
My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

We send our deepest condolences to Chris’s family.. We spoke with Chris almost on a daily basis ordering parts for our business and felt of Chris as a great friend. We had on occasion gone into Trible’s and seen him personally and it certainly gave you a better picture of who Chris was, that smile, laugh and just genuine personality. He amazed me spilling out part numbers or telling you what you were ordering by the part number you had given him.. He was a jewel and will be missed immensely by many of us who call Trible’s on a somewhat daily basis and all of his coworkers. Agaihn we are very sorry for your loss and pray that God’s love and peace be with each of you.
Sincerely, Jack and Margaraet Richards and Shannon Hall of Gallion & Richards Appliance Center, Victoria, Va.
We were deeply saddened about the passing of Chris. He will be greatly missed by us. We have known Chris for over twenty years working at Trible’s. It was always a pleasure to see Chris and how he greeted us with his genuine laughter.
