With broken hearts we regret to announce Chris’ passing on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, at the Vaughan Hospital at the age of 51.

Loving father and friend of Kiiana Casola, Nicholas Casola, Matthew Casola, Alysha Casola and Rilley Matheson. Beloved partner of Loree Specht. Proud grandfather of Archer Jensen and Naia Matheson. Chris will be dearly missed by his sister Dawn Frier. He will be fondly remembered by Loree’s mom, Joanna Waller, who Chris was very close to and called “Mum”.

Through life’s ups and downs, dad’s close best friend, Twister, always found a way to be there for him. Twister will greatly miss Chris but will think of him every day. Chris was loved by both family and friends, and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him, including his beloved Rottweiler, Lexington “Lexi”.

Chris had a passion for everything Harley Davidson. He enjoyed his work and talked very highly of his coworkers at Harley Davidson, but most of all Chris enjoyed riding his Harley. Chris was an understanding, calm, calculated and big-hearted man who was always five steps ahead. He loved gummy bears and cheesecake!

A private graveside service has taken place.

In lieu of flowers or donations the family asks for a note about how Chris affected your life, best memory, mementos, or photos that can be mailed to the funeral home to create a memory box for the kids.

Arrangements entrusted to Northwood Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre (942 Great Northern Rd, 705-945-7758).
