- Partners in Housing
- Chris Maples, on the left.
(In lieu of the Starting Five, we offer this remembrance.)
Indianapolis has lost one of its brightest stars. Chris Maples, who was instrumental in the creation of Dad's Inc. for the Villages, who left that gig for an instrumental position with Partners in Housing and who was a founder of the Hoosier Beer Geek blog has died at the age of just 37.
His fellow Beer Geeks have left a touching tribute to the man they knew well here.
Chris had been battling an aggressive form of cancer when an infection overtook his system, a system weakened by chemo. Indy lost Chris on Sunday. Some memories of Chris are turning up on his Facebook page.
Chris leaves behind a wife and two boys, a family he absolutely adored. If you want to help the family as they plan for their future in this most terrible of times, skip the flowers and throw a buck or two this way:

Farewell, Chris. You're gone much too soon.
