My thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family and his extended family. Chris and I had played baseball against each other since we were in little league, then high school and Federation League. I knew him as not only a really good baseball player but who always had a smile on his face and I'm so glad that he and I by coincidence had a chance to reconnect and share some good memories and him to tell me that he didn't fear many baseball players but I was one of the few that shook him when in reality I believe I feared him as much as he feared me. Tyrone Legion and Park Furniture had a pretty good rivalry going on but no matter what he and I always respected each other's talents and knew he was going to give it all he had. So in closing Chris may you Rest In Peace and I'm sure you're up the playing baseball on that great big "FIELD OF DREAMS". Take care my friend and continue watching down over your family and protect them. - Your friend and fellow baseball player Leland Nolan
Chris you were always kind to me and always had a smile on your face when we went to school together. I cannot thank you enough for your kindness. May God watch over your friends and family and bring you peace at last. RL
Chris was my friend in high school and my debate partner in college. We would frequently talk/argue politics and he was always trying to get me to like country music. He had a genuinely kind soul. May his family find strength and comfort in knowing that his memory and his smile lives on vividly in so many of us who knew him and called him a friend.
My prayers go out to the Weyandt family. Chris was truly one of a kind. I will fondly remember him playing baseball and walking to classes together. He taught me about politics and we had numerous conversations about religion after his mom passed. He felt a great loss with that and I hope that it comforts you all now as I believe he is finally with her again. Sending thoughts of love and light to help carry you all through this very difficult time. You friend, will be missed by many! Much love to you all! -Tonya Burgess
Your Dad left you with a full cup of memories. Today, it may not feel like enough. Tomorrow and the day after you will continue to make more because you will find him with you. He's a part of each of you because he gave you the best parts of himself. I hope all of the memoriesnbring you closer to peace in the days ahead. He loved you all so very much. I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss.
I will always miss you my dear friend. I pray you've found the peace you need and that the Lord protects your family and gives them strength. Rest peacefully, Chris
Sending thoughts and prayers to the Weyandt family, especially his girls. May you rest in Peace Chris.
Thoughts and prayers are with his family, especially his daughters!
So sorry to hear of this loss for his family. Prayers for all.
May your soul be resting peacefully now Chris and the demons are gone forever. Please fly high and watch over your girls. You are and will be truly missed by many. Until we come together again my friend.

Many thoughts and prayers I send to your family. Chris was one of a kind and he will be missed. Girls I just want you to know he loved you with all that he was. Never did I talk to him that the conversation didn't lead to his girls. Rest In Peace my friend.
Oh my dear friend , it saddens me so that you are gone but it gives me peace in knowing your no longer dealing with the Demons within you. You always treated me like family and I will forever remember you and your awesome bear hugs. I had Meadows ice cream just for you yesterday :). May the hands of Jesus's cradle over Crissy, Lexi, Lucy, Lilly, Wendy and the rest of your family as you are laid to rest. I'm sure it was quite a reunion with your mom and nephew at the gates of our lords heavenly home. Love you my friend❤️ Fly high and soar like an eagle!!!!
So sorry to hear of your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sue St Martin
My sincere prayers and sympathy to Chris's entire family. May God help you in your pain and bless you all with an eternal Angel to watch over you. Chris was a great friend and classmate, ran into him a few weeks back with that big smile on his face. I hope and pray he is at peace. Till me meet again my friend.
