Christopher was an avid gamer and loved collecting antique game systems. He loved every type of music, he considered himself an old soul with some of the music he likes.
He was known as "Joker" to many for his wonderful sense of humor. He was the light of our lives and touched so many hearts. Christopher will never be forgotten.
