I first met Chris in he 70's when he was opening for Donald O'Connor at Harrahs in Reno, Nevada. where he met my sister Debbie Yates who was a photograher at the time. They fell in love and had a lovely garden wedding at my California home. He immediately stole our hearts and became a part of a big loving Southern family. He brought so much joy and love to us all. One of my favorite memories is watching my Dad laughing so hard at one of his acts that it brought tears. We loved him unconditionally old and young. My daughters still talk about "Uncle Chris" . He would entertain at their birthday parties and , knowing he was there, the neighborhood children would crash the party even though they might not have been invited.
We never lost our love for him all these years. Go rest high on the mountain Uncle Chris, you will never be forgottten by the Yates family.
