Remembering Chris Carrier

At the time of his death, Chris Carrier was head of a department of 840 employees, with a $41 million budget. The Director of the City of Wichita Public Works & Utilities died Sunday of an apparent heart attack while riding his motorcycle near the Art Museum. A Newton native, Carrier had been with the City of Wichita since 1997.
He oversaw the City’s major infrastructure projects, including improving drainage along Cowskin Creek and the $105 million Central Rail Corridor improvements. He also supervised the Keeper of the Plains and fire-on-the-water display in the Arkansas River.
In the course of several interviews, I got to know Chris Carrier as a public servant and a man who was proud of his family and his city. We talked about our sons, both in military service. I found him to be a friendly man who was in complete command of his professional duties. I think of him every time I do not have to wait for a train on 13th Street.
Chris Carrier has left his mark on many projects that have improved the quality of life for all Wichitans.

Our thought for today is from Elbert Hubbard:
 
 “If you want a work well done, select a busy man: the other kind has no time.”
