Christopher will be remembered as a charismatic, funny, and talented person. Christopher had an interest in music from a very early age. He started playing piano at 5 years old and won many awards and accolades. He added the saxophone in his teen years and played for the Choctawhatchee High School Marching Band. After graduation he became a DJ of notoriety playing at the top night clubs in the Fort Walton Beach area including Nightown, The Swamp, and many others. He hosted the famous music artists that would come to town for shows in these clubs and enjoyed showing the artists our beautiful area. Christopher was quick witted and very funny using a lot of physical humor as well. He was immensely likable and a pleasure to be around. As he built a family he got away from the night club scene and used his people skills to get into sales. He sold tools, sold computer services, and sold trucking routes. He was never afraid to talk to someone and never lost his positive spirit when someone rejected him harshly. He loved electronic music, chorizo wrapped in cheese, and horror movies, but only in the theater. He was taken far too soon and he will be missed.
Services will be conducted on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 12:00pm with visitation one hour prior at 11:00am at Emerald Coast Funeral Home 161 Racetrack Road NW Fort Walton Beach, FL. 32547 (850) 864-3361. Interment will take place at Beal Memorial Cemetery where Christopher will be laid to rest next to his mother Cindy immediately following the service.
