Christopher Conway Warren, age 46, of Christiansburg, passed away on July 22 at Heritage Hall Nursing Home in Blacksburg Va. Chris spent most of his life fighting to stay alive and is now at peace.
He is survived by his grandmother Katie Wilker; his mother, Kerry Warren; his brother Jamie Warren and his family Jessica, Jaxon, and Asa; and his sister Lindsay Moose and her family Josh and Liberty Moose.
Chris had a personality and a smile that were larger than life. Although he may have had reasons not to be, Chris was always happy. Chris was quick to remind you that your problems were nothing compared to what he had overcome and that life could always be worse. He made the best of every situation and truly tried to help others see the good in the world. Chris impacted every person he encountered and will be remembered by people he had long forgotten. Anyone that had the pleasure of meeting Chris became a better person because of it. He loved God, his family, Duke basketball and Virginia Tech football.
The family wants to say thank you to every hospital, doctors office and nursing home Chris has ever visited. His quality of life was improved by their dedication.
The family received friends at Gardner’s Funeral Home on yesterday. A small private graveside service will be held at a later date.
