Chris led a very active life growing up. As a young teenager, he spent a vast amount of time schooling his brothers in basketball in the front yard. Chris attended Wayland Baptist University on a basketball scholarship and majored and obtained his Associates degree in Criminal Justice.
Chris devoted his life to God and feared only Him. He was the least selfish person and dedicated his time to always make sure others were protected. His family saw him as a hero to the world. Chris always worked hard to help others win. In the humblest of ways, he strived to succeed in life for his mom, his family, and his friends. We can hear his voice always saying, “When I win, we will all win!” No matter the situation, Chris conquered all with the kindness of his heart, and his bright and shining smile. As we lay Chris to rest, we do it holding on to all of our amazing memories and knowing that he is with us as our guardian angel. #LLCRue
