Chris was born on April 16, 1953 in Wichita, the son of Kenneth Law and Lorita (Fooshee) Law Orr. He attended Wichita West High School until his junior year and graduated from Andover High School. He later attended Columbia Bible College. Chris enlisted in the U.S. Navy, where he served from 1971 to 1977. He was an FTG1 (SS) on the USS Ray (SSN-653). While stationed in Charleston, S.C., he met the love of his life, Mary LouAnn Swartz. They married June 17, 1977, in Charleston. The couple moved back to Winfield in 1984, where Chris joined the family business, Law & Sons Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. Law & Sons closed in 2001, and Chris began working for Waldorf Riley and later Kuhn Mechanical, from which he retired in 2017. He later worked in the maintenance department at Southwestern College.
