“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything…”

On December 10, 2018 Kris Hoogenstryd was taken from us way to soon. He left behind his son Kristian, brothers William and Robert, their wives, nieces and nephew and many friends. Kris was loved by everyone that knew him. Unfortunately, there are so many people in different states that it is just too hard for everyone to get together to remember him in the traditional way.

Kris was very passionate about music and how it affected people so deeply. Kris’s family with the help of his friends decided this would be the perfect way to remember Kris. Kris would want his musician family to remain healthy so they can continue making music. He had a passion for music and was self-driven. Words cannot say enough about a man who was respected and loved by so many. Kris will be missed but will never be forgotten.

Rest in paradise.
