Marriage Builders is saddened to have learned of the death of one of our very valuable, highly respected & loved members, Chrisner.

Chrisner passed away after an illness and will be greatly missed by all.

He left a legacy here on the forums, battling the shock of betrayal, sharing his pain & his wisdom, often times with his crazy sense of humor. He had the ability to survive and thrive after the divorce, to find new love and share that dream with others.

Rest in Peace, our dear friend, Chrisner.

I don't post here much but read regularly and Chrisner was one of my very favourite posters. He had the most amazing sense of humor and a wonderful way with words. His tales about "gollum" were legendary.

I am truly saddened by this news, he was so young. My deepest sympathies to his family, particularly his daughter with whom I recall he had a very close relationship.

RIP Chrisner.

Many a good man has failed because he had a wishbone where his backbone should have been.

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.

Whoa! This is terribly sad news. Just a short while ago I was thinking that out of all the threads I've read on this site if I had to choose for an update from just one former poster, it would be Chrisner. This is not the update I was hoping to see.

I wasn't around when he was here, but I've read every word he posted on this site, and he was an impressive individual. His sense of humor was right on target with mine. Man, this sucks.

Thoughts and prayers to his daughter. She must be destroyed.

RIP Chrisner.

Very sad to hear this news.

I pray his daughter be comforted by remembering her Dads strength of character and humour in the darkest of times.

Rest in peace Chrisner

This is terrible news. I'm so sad for his daughter because they were so close. I'm sure there are many grieving for him because if I remember correctly, he was also a coach to many young people. He was a very funny guy, remember the woodchipper? RIP Chrisner.

This is so sad! He was such a witty guy, his sense of humor about Wayzilla and Golum, his devotion to his daughter, his courage fighting to do the right thing - such a loss for the world. So sad to learn about his passing.

Our friend has left us. My friend. Very sad indeed. His daughter is a beautiful person. Inside & out. Prayers for her.

PS:
I have a fantastic memory/photo of us 'fruits & nuts' gathered together (Chris & his DD) posing with Drew Carey and laughing our butts off. I just looked at the pic and feel sad, but so grateful we got to know each other. A really GREAT guy.

So very sad,,,,

Yes Pep, I remember our "fruits & nuts" get together at Bob' Big Boy restaurant when I met Chrisner. So very handsome with his gorgeous daughter. And such a sincerely nice guy.

Such a loss....

Such a class act. I felt privileged when I got a post from him. I'm shocked and saddened that I never got to meet this man in person. My prayers go out to his family, friends, gf and all the MBers who are feeling his loss. God bless you Chrisner.
