Along with music, he was a die-hard fan of the Dallas Cowboys and University of Houston Cougars. This past year, he was in attendance for the Cougars signature victory over the Oklahoma Sooners at NRG Stadium. In Galveston, he enjoyed spending time with family at one his favorite restaurants, Salsas, along the Seawall.

So long my friend....I am glad we became friends, and got to hang out a few times. I will miss our discussions on Guitars & Amps. See you on the other side.

I worked with Chris at Tandy, Altech-Lansing and Peavey. He was an excellent fellow to work with, and we turned out some really great products in the day. I remember meeting Amber when she was a little bitty girl. Amber, i'm really sorry for your loss. I bet your Dad is kickin' it in some rockin' band right now! With Otis at his side...

You will be greatly missed Dad. I wish now more than ever I could listen to your stories of Japan, your vast computer knowledge, or just to hear your voice one more time. Love you

My favorite one was when we were at a football game and he turned around and told the guy behind him he was yelling too loud!!!!


Warner Abel posted on 3/22/17

He loved his family. We can never forget his famous yell "SIT DOWN" as he kicked a chair across the floor at Del Pueblo restaurant. He did this to protect our family.
