Chris was born in Waterloo, N.Y. on January 27, 1971. He graduated from South Seneca Central School in 1989, and continued his education at RIT and Cayuga Co. Community College, earning his degrees in computer technology. He had worked at The Computing Center in Ithaca, as a network engineer, for a number of years before his first diagnosis of a brain tumor seven years ago. He had been an active member of the LakeView Assembly of God Church in Watkins Glen, acting as treasurer and teen leader. Chris had a very strong faith, he was a devoted Christian and believer in God and His will. He found great comfort in reading the Bible daily. Despite his physical limitations, he never missed a soccer game, a concert, or school event that included one of his boys. He was truly proud of their accomplishments, and savored his time spent with them.
Chris is survived by his devoted and loving wife of 18 years, Kathy; and their two sons, Elijah and Peter; his parents, William and Ann Trim; his brothers, Randy (Diane) of Bemus Point, N.Y., Kevin (Heather) of Portal, Ga., and Gary (Kelly) of West Port Charlotte, Fla.; his mother-in-law, Donna Hallett, of Lodi; a brother-in-law, Luke (Donna) Hallett of Ithaca and several nieces and nephews.
