Sohum lost a very colorful human being this morning. Chris Mayner was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. He had been having some serious health problems. Apparently he passed away in his sleep.

He’s survived by his life partner Patrick.

I didn’t know Chris well, but he was a client of mine. I had worked with him several times at KMUD. I really enjoyed his music selections. He was a lovable character from my experience.

I’m borrowing the photo from KMUD’s website. Chris is on the left, Daveau (also deceased) on the right.
