God Bless Chris Patton and his family. He was a very special man, one of the best that I ever meet or worked with while at Chrysler. I played a lot of golf with Chris in outings and in the JTE Golf League as well as some great times together. Always had a smile on his face, he was the best.
So sad to hear of your loss. With deepest Sympathy.
To Lisa, Christin and Alisa and our dear aunt Helen. Please know that your Aunt Lean and all of your family here in Chicago are lifting you up in prayer and share your grief. Love you all. My cousin Chris was a wonderful man.

I am still shocked at the loss of Chris Payton. We knew each other since we were children and he was always kind. His family is family. This is so tough. Aunt Helen, Lisa, I am so heartbroken for you. Please know that I am thinking of you and sending up prayers for strength during this most difficult period. All I can say is that Chris was a terrific man, friend to my father, and a wonderful brother and role model. He will be so sorely missed.
Chris you were a great man of God. Although we've only worked on one project together. You left a lasting impression on me with the way you handled yourself with the dignity and grace. I will miss our spiritual discussions and golf stories. Rest easily My Brother in God's presence.
My condolences to the Payton Family and Friends. Chris will be missed and never forgotten.
Chris you will be missed. Rest in heaven.
