It was a Beautiful Memorial for Chris

An outpouring of people came to Taughannock Falls State Park this evening to celebrate the life of Chris Dennis.


The North Point Pavilion was packed to capacity as videos and photos of Chris were shown.


Chris had a passion for adventure and for making a difference in the world, which were shown in the videos and the words spoken about him by his family and friends. He loved life, was happy, and inspired those he met to love life too.

Chris was always moving his body in dance, free-style skiing, hiking, biking, canoeing, and many other outdoor activities. Chris could ham it up and also be serious about the state of humanity. He was a talented videographer and dedicated activist.

The memorial concluded with a silent walk along Cayuga Lake and then a pot luck dinner.


Chris took some time-lapse photos the morning of May 22, and left them on his camera, on the shore that were put together with music by his brother and shown as the final video of the evening.

We will miss you Chris Dennis. We love you.
