The Hurst family lives east of Enumclaw where Chris and April built a home in 1984.  There, they raised their two children, Andrew, now 28, and Kimberly, now 24.  Both Andy and Kim attended public schools in the Enumclaw School District.  Chris is a lifelong resident of this area and his grandparents lived in Greenwater when he was a child.  This was when only a few families lived there year round.

About Chris
During his 25-year police career, Chris spent 14 years in narcotics investigations and was one of the original founding members of a federal drug task force called the South King County Narcotics Task Force.  He worked major drug trafficking organizations and traveled around the country and even did undercover flying as a pilot in drug cases.  Spending most of his time in investigations, he finished his career two and a half years ago as the Commander of a 15-city Homicide/Violent Crimes Task Force.

Chris and April are proud of their son Andrew who is currently serving in the United States Army as a Criminal Investigator after three combat tours as an Airborne Infantry Soldier.  Andy, while on leave from a tour of duty in the Middle East, married his wife, Catherine, and they make their home in Alexandria, Virginia. Andy currently works directly for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon.    Catherine, who will be having their second child sometime in June, stays busy with Jacob, and working on her Master's Degree in Speech Language Pathology (she is currently fluent in several languages, both speaking and writing!).  Catherine is originally from a town two hours from London, England, and the Hurstís are proud to have her as a member of the family.

Kim graduated from Enumclaw High School and is currently working in Enumclaw.  Her husband, Brandon Lauk, 
works for a box manufacturing company in Kent.
Chris worked throughout high school in his fatherís cabinet shop, then went on to work in the woods as a logger in the Enumclaw area after high school, eventually starting his own forest products company which had as many as 12 employees.  He is no stranger to hard work, or the complexities of running a successful small business.  Some years later, he chose to go into public service as a police officer.  At that time he also went back to school to earn a degree in Aviation from Green River Community College.  He also was a pilot and a flight instructor in his spare time and eventually became an FAA certified Airline Transport Pilot, a license which he still holds today.
Kim and Brandon have a son, Logan whose two and a half years old and a daughter, Jayden, who is one and a half.  Kim is also the owner of Kimís Sweet Dream Cakes; she makes custom cakes and cupcakes for special events.
