He eventually met and married his wife Katheleen and they settled in Oakville where they were raising their son and active in their church.


Christopher enjoyed the outdoors and loved camping with his friends and family. One of his favorite things to do was to have a bonfire (whether camping or at home) and relax and roast marshmallows for s'mores 


Christopher loved spending time with family and friends. He definitely enjoyed the holidays when everyone would get together for big dinners.


He enjoyed his job as a truck driver, working for VCT and cherished all the friendships he had made. He enjoyed life and had an infectious smile and laugh that made everyone feel good.


In addition to his wife and son, Christopher is survived by four step-children that he thought of as his own. They are Nicole, Alexis (Damon), D.J. (Brittney) and Jason (Lauren), as well as numerous grandchildren, whom he loved with all his heart.
