In loving memory of Chris Wham, who graced this world on May 19, 1968, and embarked on his next journey while embraced in cousin Nancy’s arms on April 11, 2024. Chris was an old soul deeply passionate about life’s many wonders, leaving behind a legacy of love, laughter, and cherished memories.

Chris’ adoration for animals, particularly cats, knew no bounds. He found companionship in their gentle presence, nurturing a bond that brought immense joy to his heart. His love for the melodies of the 1920s and 1930s, as well as the soulful rhythms of jazz, illuminated his days with timeless harmony.

An avid enthusiast of both video and board games, Chris reveled in the thrill of adventure and strategy, engaging in countless hours of immersive gameplay. His love for the Colorado mountains held a special place in his heart. He found a sense of belonging and it was the only place that felt like home.

Chris possessed an exceptional artistic talent that inspired those close to him. He also had a deep appreciation for history and was fascinated with historic memorabilia. His passion for motorcycles and the nostalgic charm of early 1900s Looney Tunes cartoons reflected his vibrant personality and whimsical outlook on life. Chris had a remarkable sense of humor, delighting in the art of pranks and jokes that never failed to bring laughter to those around him.

Chris leaves behind a family who cherished him deeply: his mother, Patrice; his father, Tom; stepfather, Roger; and his beloved siblings, Dawn, Tiffany, Brandon, and Jon. In addition to immediate family, he is survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, a nephew, and dear friends. Their memories of him will forever remain etched in their hearts, a testament to the profound impact he had on their lives.

In the wake of Chris’ passing, let us remember him not with sorrow, but with fondness and gratitude for the beautiful moments he shared with us. May his spirit continue to shine brightly in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.

Rest in peace, dear Chris. Your laughter, your love, and your light will live on in our hearts for eternity.

Memories Timeline


  1. There was a can of beer at our wedding, to no surprise it was tied to Chris. When I was about to get it from the wife I let her know it was her brother. Then for some reason it was now OK.

  2. Chris, we played together as kids at my grandparents home as we were so close in age. I’m so happy that we were able to reconnect on Facebook all these years later. It was wonderful to see the life you made and get to know you as an adult. I’m going to miss you cousin, but hope you’re in cat heaven loving the animals and at peace.
