Christopher Grantham Goering, 25, died March 3, 2021.
Chris was a loving, and determined child who grew up to be incredibly
resilient in the face of adversity. From wearing the same Buzz Lightyear
shirt for six months, to a year-long family- wide insistence on camping
in his own bedroom before he’d go to sleep at night, Chris was always

Chris never shied away from the truth - he would admit that his life
hadn’t always been easy, but it seemed things were the best they'd been

with a job he loved and a new family that he embraced so fully that it is

In October 2020, Chris and Ciera welcomed their son, Marcus Xavier.
Marcus and his older sister, Mia, were at the center of Chris’ new life.
Chris embraced being a father of two without hesitation - always the first

anyone reading this, will help to keep Chris’ memory alive by making
sure Marcus knows how amazing his father was.
Chris will be remembered as a dedicated son, brother, friend, fiancé, and
