Christ may be remembered sitting at the local cafes working his daily crossword puzzle. Wearing many hats, Christ was a flight engineer in the Air Force during the Korean War. He loved to design and create many useful items, using many of them on his beloved farm. He was a faithful Jehovah Witness for many years.
Christ was preceded in death by his parents; eight siblings; his wife, Lois; son, Randy Chris; and his good friend who was like a son, Barry Glover.
He is survived by his daughters, Cheree Myers and Cindi Starner of Arizona; grandson, Daniel Myers; granddaughters, Rhiann (Tony) Viggiano, April (Joey) Kretschmer and Jamie Starner; three great-granddaughters, Emily, Elise and Isabelle Kretschmer; his sister, Lillian Temple; and a host of nieces, nephews and a longtime friend, Robert Stark.
