  • Share this obituary:

Chris was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 13, 1971.

At a young age Chris’s father David passed away.

Chris was a free spirit who loved the outdoors. He loved camping and fishing. Chris loved bicycling and later motorcycling. As a very young man, Chris enjoyed extreme bicycling and loved to dirt bike in the Sandy Utah area. He also loved skateboarding in the foothills of Sandy Utah at a location called the “fishbowl”. He soon became an avid water and snow skier. He loved to spend time in the summer at Lake Powell and at various lakes in Utah. In the winter he loved snowboarding especially on anything that resembled a half pipe.

Chris attended Alta High School. A severe neurological disorder interrupted his ability to graduate and participate in a normal family and social setting. He remained single but developed artistic talents.

Chris was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Recently Chris was involved in an accident that left him paralyzed from the middle of his chest. This was very difficult for Chris to be given more mental and physical limitations, but he strived to keep a positive and loving outlook on life.

We are saddened by his death but believe that he is now released from his earthly limitations and can freely move about as he is reunited with loved ones who preceded him in death.

Private family services will be held on November 2, 2017. Interment will be at the Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery in Sandy Utah.

  • Cindy & Rod,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your dear son. I met Chris several times at the house. I know his accident a while back was terrible for all of your but especially for Chris who seemed like such a free spirit. I am happy he can be out of that body that was holding him down and he run free and ride his bike. My heart is with you Cindy. Much love at this tender time. Deanna
