Even after life he continues to give...
Christopher Thomas Reid
October 17, 1990 – May 2018
Christopher was a very special person. He was so many things. A beloved son, brother, uncle, grandson, cousin, friend, veteran, artist and the list goes on. He had a golden heart, and even during difficult times his light still shined.
He was always caring and generous. Even if he had nothing he would still give what he had. If someone was in need he would surely give the shirt off his back.
He was very creative. He always enjoyed drawing and building things. He spent some of his time as a tattoo artist. He also spent time framing and building houses. He was the type of artist that could look at something and draw it out perfectly. He had a brilliant mind. From a young age he would take things totally apart and put them back together, making the original object better.
This was in a sense an analogy of his life. He always strived to be the best. Even if things didn’t always work out the way he wanted, he would take the pieces and try to make something even better.
He had an amazing sense of humor. If someone had to break the ice in any situation, he would be the one to do so. He would always know how to make someone laugh. He also had an ability to really reach people and be able to make them smile when they really needed it.
He really loved music and enjoyed spending time playing his guitar. He loved to show his nephews his skills and teach them. He was definitely the “Cool Uncle”.
He was always very close to the family. He was loving, caring and protective. He had many friends that he loved and also considered family. He has touched so many lives. He will be greatly missed by many and always remembered. We are truly blessed that we had such a beautiful person in our lives.
It is fitting for Christopher that even after life he continues to give.
As a family the life that he is able to give other’s gives a silver lining to the pain from our loss. We are so proud ❤️
