    My deepest condolences to the family of Chris Worley. When l think of Chris l remember a man who showed up to work every day and who did an excellent job. He greeted everyone with the same warm greeting “Hey. How you doing?” He kept my department abreast of events happening on base. He especially like to tell us about cookouts. You could tell Chris was in his zone behind the grill. He Would fix food, keep the music going, talk to people And managed to make everyone happy. Langley was better because of him and he will be missed by many.

    Worley will be missed by so many; I was fortunate to work with him twice NMCP and Langley Hosp. It’s been over 20 years, and he has always been the same; funny and kind. Trying to put on the mean face but deep down his big heart would stand out. Charlette my prayers are with you and all his family, especially his mother.
    I know God welcomed him with open arms because that’s just the kind of God we serve. There will be rough days ahead but in time I pray that Gods peace and comfort will continue bless The Worley Family.

    My deepest and heartfelt condolence to the Worley family. May God comfort you during this most difficult time. Chris had a heart of “gold”. As a prior supervisor, Chris’s integrity and work ethics was at the highest level of professionalism. He was selfless and made daily rounds to make sure that all staff members in the office were “ok”. Office BBQs and Fish Fries would not have been great events without Chris’s cooking and organization. God needed an outstanding soldier in his army and Chris raised his had to the “Call” and is now a Warrior for eternity! Rest in God’s Care.
