Christopher’s career at Champlain College Lennoxville, spanned many years with communications support/teaching, mentoring and life guidance in the community and beyond. An avid woodworker, boat builder, with his attention to detail apparent in his 28’ Herreshoff Rosinati- Moragh II and his delightful models sloops. Amateur military historian, able to recount passionately stories in ways that engaged us in deeper reflection.
