It is from those complications that sadly became too much for her to endure and ultimately took her from us.

Because of Chrissy’s beautiful smile and courageous personality she was loved by many people. Chrissy you will always be in our thoughts and prayers and never will you be forgotten. You will live on in our hearts forever, till we see each other again. We will continue forward with the love and strength you demonstrated while here with us.

Even though he was still young, he touched the lives of so many in his family, and the lives of so many friends and co-workers. He was very independent, strong, and a unique person with a heart of gold. Daniel was a devoted and loving father, son and brother.

Though born in Pasadena, where he spent most of his life, he graduated Sam Rayburn High School in Pasadena, Texas in 1989 and attended Lee College in Baytown, TX. He moved to Hempstead where he bought a home and property to live the country life that he so enjoyed, where he lived until his passing.

Career highlights included his many years at GE, where he served as a Turbine Mechanic/ Machinist in Houston, and then finally he transferred to the GE out of Boston and traveled to random parts of the US until his passing. When Daniel wasn’t working, he was helping someone with something. He was always willing and able to be helpful. Never one to take short-cuts, you could trust him to handle any job. That was part of his honorable disposition.

Because of his smile and positive personality, most were unaware that he had medical issues for several years. Complications from his illness, sadly, got the best of him. Loved by so many, he will never be forgotten. Daniel is survived by his beloved daughters Lindsay, McKenzie and Emily, his mother Kathy Clifford and husband Trevor, father William Stork and wife Ginny Bright, his brother Kevin Stork and wife Cheryl, sisters Tonya Carlton, Angel Keng and husband Aaron, with the rest of his loving family, and friends.
