“It is with great sorrow I notify you of the passing of my brother Chris Hafner . Unfortunately, the demons that surrounded him yesterday got the better of him, and he took his own life. His wife Heather Boyce Hafner and mother Janet Hafner are surrounded and supported by family and are understandably devastated, as we all are. We understand the desire to reach out and offer support, and in time would welcome hearing from you, but at this time we respectfully request time to grieve. As details of a service or memorial become available we will make an announcement. rest in peace brother.”
