Family is the most important thing to the Tuskis. Chris' kids will tell you how Chris was home every night for dinner and how he never missed an opportunity to coach their sports teams, help with homework, or lend career advice. There was (and is) no doubt that Chris' priorities are simple: faith, family, good works. That is what Chris lives by, and that is what his family loves about him.
