I was very sad to hear of Chris passing away this past Saturday. Growing up in Mechanicville, I was aware of who Chris was and always an admirer of him from afar. Fortunately I got to know Chris on much more intimate basis once I joined Prudential Insurance for a 2+ year run in 1966/67. His encouragement and help in trying to make me a success was typical of the kind of guy Chris was. He was inspiring, knowledgeable, and always fun! My career path took a different path as I left McVille in 1970 to seek my way in the radio business. But I was never unaware of all the good things Chris did for his family and community. My brother Tom and, just as importantly, The Express kept me updated on the many things Chris was involved in. From his political activities to he overwhelming contribution's to his beloved City as outlined so beautifully in his obituary. A true man of the people and one of the kindest souls I had the pleasure to know and always considered a friend even from thousands of miles away. The world would be a better place, and now heaven will be, with the likes of Chris Sgambati in our presence.
