“It is hard to believe 32 years have passed,” read a statement from his mother Rondeau.

“Chris’ annual memorial tournament renews my belief in the youth of today, they are the future, young and strong and fearless. Our family is grateful for the love and strength the tournament has provided us over the years. Thank you.”
