Chris was born in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Chris loved life and he lived out his love in action to his family and friends and anyone he encountered. His kind heart, crazy sense of humor, and big smile will never be forgotten. Chris was an avid fisherman and always loved being near the water. If he wasn’t on the water, you could find him sitting outside bird watching; he especially loved his hummingbirds. But most of all, he loved spending time with his wife and grandchildren. He was a devoted and loving husband, father, Pa, son, brother, and friend. Above all, he loved the Lord and wanted to serve Him. Chris had been an active attender of the Outdoors Blessings Ministry and had recently been a regular attender of First Baptist Church of Cherryville, where he impacted many through his testimony.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Judy Banks Colgate; grandparents, Virginia and Sam Colgate; grandparents, Dean and Ford Sanders; and brother-in-law, Tanner Bowers.
