More from Chris

Hello to all that read this bio. My name is Christopher Michael Gates. My friends call me Gates. My first name was constructed by my mom. My dad wanted to name me Clint, after Clint Eastwood. My mom said HELL NO. Thanks mom. My middle name came from my Dad’s name. Yup you guessed it, his name is Michael. I have one sister named Michele and, yes, I spelled that right. One L is all she got. My parents thought it would be unique.

I have a wonderful, loving and caring wife named Ashley Gates. She is my rock and the light that keeps me from seeing darkness. I have three kids: Emma, Ellie, and Ryker. I’m so blessed to have these three perfect children.

Some of my favorite things to do are having family fun nights, biking, kayaking, camping, fixing up old cars and trucks, and playing computer games. I do bring my family on most of these because I don’t like to see them set out. I love for us to have fun together.
