“We love you man!”

We will miss seeing your face, and seeing you rock all those looks that only you could pull off.

You were always good at bringing people together, and your friendship and spirit will continue to carry on with us and the energy around us. You’ve cultivated a pretty rad “family” of friends whose lives you have impacted astronomically with your presence and the love you gave. You hold a special place in each and every one of our hearts, and the memories we have will continue to make us laugh and smile.

Thank you for all that you were, and all that you gave to each and every one of us. You’re truly one of a kind. WE LOVE YOU KNOWLES! Cheers to you, your snicker, your smile, your love for the most obnoxious shade of orange, and most importantly, your huge heart.

To honor Chris’ memory, “A Day of Knowlzie” on 03/25/18. Hop on your bikes & rally at Alameda Park for his favorite Sunday Cruiser ride departing at 12:43 ending at Leadbetter Beach at 1:43 for food, drinks, & being together sharing stories & memories of our bro CK43.

Please help us support one of Chris’ passions: ice hockey. Chris & his hockey buddies were instrumental in bringing the ice rink to SB/Goleta. We have set up a fund in Chris’ name for donations to “Ice in Paradise” hoping to add his name to the donor board at the entrance of the rink. To support this effort, please go to

So long for now homie, we will keep you with us, and be rooting for the Kings until we meet again.

PS. Keep dropping those 43 bombs in our path to say “what’s up”. We love it!
