The weather was overcast and cold, but that did not dampen the turnout or the celebration. The condolences were led by Deputy Prime Minister, Asim Martin, who journeyed from St.Kitts to be part of the ceremony.

The evening event was led by St.Clair Chiverton, a family friend and representative to the St.Kitts-Nevis Mission in New York. Cerene Dasent did a solo for her uncle, along with a sister Rita, who travelled from England, read the Scripture.

The St.Kitts Football Association made a presentation to the family for the services and inspiration that Chris rendered during his time as a National player. Dr. Asim Martin bought word of condolences on behalf of the Government of St.Kitts and Nevis and on his own behalf. He thanked Chris for being the “best midfielder, there ever was in St.Kitts”.

Pastor Peats, a native of St.Kitts gave words of comfort to the family. The ceremony ended well into the night with an invitation to continue with refreshment at nearby catering hall in Utica, Brooklyn.
