On a warm summer day Kris enjoyed fishing the local lakes and ponds with his beloved wife Christa. When his family was young they enjoyed traveling to South to Florida and Tennessee to visit family and friends. Kris found his "alone" time while blasting down the open road on a sunny summer day on his Harley Davidson motorcycle. Growing up on a farm, Kris developed a work ethic and the ability to improvise and draft solutions to just about any problem. He used this unique skill set while working at Witt Sod Farm in Grand Ledge. During his time there, Kris was instrumental in developing a hybrid grass seed that could withstand being grown on a concrete slab. His ability to fix just about anything was a valuable asset as Kris quickly become the "go to" when farm equipment and trucks needed to be repaired. Kris also spent several years working at Maxi Muffler in Charlotte, before an accident shortened his career. Kris is survived by his beloved wife Christa, two daughters, Ashley Davis, Vivian (Matthew (Braden)) Russell, two brothers, Ed Miller, Tom Miller, and his grand dog Scooby Doo.
