Chris Fry, RIP

On July 15th, I had the privilege of photographing Chris Fry, in Mission, Kansas on July 15th for my project. He was a very nice guy, whom I had found online and asked about whether he might have interest in being a part of the book. Happily, he agreed and we set up a shoot when I was passing through town. Here's what he wrote me about himself.

Not really sure what to write. I work at KU Med Center as a respiratory therapist. I'm a quiet reserved person, put my all into something or someone that I like. Try to do right by others. May have found that special someone to spend my life with earlier this month. Like the outdoors and hanging with friends. Spend part of my life in the navy. Seen a good amount of the world. Well I hope I've answered your questions. Chris

Unbelievably, he was killed in a motorcycle accident last week, all too young. My heart and prayers go out to his family and boyfriend Kevin during this difficult time.
