“Forever Loved, Never Forgotten”

The Navy Gold Star Program is eternally grateful for the sacrifice of those Service Members who have died in service to our country. To help us to never forget, we have set up this tribute page to honor and remember the memory of those lives. If you would like to honor the memory of your Sailor, Soldier, Marine, Airman or Coast Guardsman through the Navy Gold Star website please submit your thoughts and a photo.

Before entering the Navy, Christopher worked at the Langley AFB Commissary, VA during high school and while attending college.

Chris joined the Navy in 1999. He served as an Optical Technician at the Naval Medical Center San Diego, California for 3 years and was in training for Laboratory Technician at the Naval School of Health Sciences San Diego at the time of his death.  He was a faithful and devoted Sailor.  Being in the Navy inspired Chris to become confident, strong, and disciplined.     

Chris enjoyed music, singing, competitive running at PT, going on trips and spending time with his friends.  His military family and friends helped him fulfill his purpose in life.  When Chris came home, family time was important to him.  He enjoyed family gatherings and all the attention he received.

Chris was a loving and kind person with a cheerful disposition.  Chris was loved by everyone who knew him.   His smile and laughter were contagious.

 Chris was 24 years old when he died but his life was “a life well lived.”

Christopher was and always will be a Blessing to our family. We will love and remember him in our hearts forever.
