Chris Gaines is a legend from Waterloo, IA Chris was the first Mr. Basketball for Waterloo, he gave our community so much to be proud about because of the way he conducted himself on and off the court with great respect for his opponent and his respect for the game (a quiet smooth assassin) I recall watching him play and having over 20 points and I would say 20, 25, 30 plus when? Chris was about more that basketball and accolades, he was a great person always approachable and smiling. Chris I will miss you, Waterloo has lost a great man and you will never be forgotten.

Much love and respect for you,

R. I. P. Chris
