The Mountain are a calling and I must go….

Christopher Joseph Reddy passed away at home with his family after a long battle with cancer. Chris obtained his degree in Environmental and Professional Planning from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Pursuing a career in Urban Planning, Chris travelled coast to coast helping to shape Canadian cities. Chris is best known for his larger than life, gregarious and positive attitude. He was a mentor to many and truly impacted the lives of those he met. He was a lover of photography, art, good food and music. He was known for saying “it’s a great day to be alive”. Always sharing his positive outlook on life with those around him. He cherished all the time he had with family and friends. Chris loved his quiet moments on the front porch with a good book and a glass scotch. A lover of knowledge and good conversation Chris had the gift of storytelling. Born in Halifax he loved being close to the ocean. His life journey brought him across Canada allowing him to develop a true love and fascination of the mountains. He found the beauty in everything around him from architecture to nature always capturing those moments along the way.
