Although I have never met Chris, shortly after 9/11 parishioners of St. Mary's in Dumont, NJ were encouraged to take a name to pray for the victims & their families. I was given Chris's name. I have often prayed for him and for your family and still carry his name with me. I am honored to now know a small bit of Chris and will continue to pray for him and his family. Thank you for entering him into this tribute.

In Remembrance
Place of Residence:
River Edge, NJ
Location on 9/11:
Cantor Fitzgerald | Municipal Bond Broker

Christopher Edward Allingham was only 36 years old, but he had already spent half of his life working on Wall St. After graduating St John Vianney H.S. in Holmdel N.J., Chris went on to St. Peter's College in Jersey City, NJ. After class, Chris would take the PATH to the World Trade Center and walk down to Broadway where he sold the N.Y. Post every day regardless of the weather.

His work ethic and glowing personality caught the eye of a regular customer who offered Chris his first job brokering Municipal Bonds. Chris was the most positive, easygoing, non-judgmental and genuinely happy person that I have ever encountered in my life. He never had a bad word to say about anyone and he would give you the shirt off of his back in a heartbeat. He was passionate about the Giants, loved his work, but most of all he loved his wife Donna and his two boys Christopher and Kyle. If we all could live by his way, the world would truly be a better place. Live each day as if its your last. Always be happy no matter the hand that you are dealt. Spend the time most with those who you love. Don't pass judgment without first looking at yourself. (source)
