Chris was surrounded by his loving family when he joined our Lord Jesus, where he was met by many past family and friends. He was born in Greenville, Ohio on September 24, 1958 and was one of six children born to the late Roger and Mavis (Pratt) Garrett. Christopher was a very successful Financial Services regional manager representing both CLA USA & Eagle Financial Services proudly for many years. Christopher was one of a kind. He was a passionate and driven team leader to those he served, and was loved, and admired by many. He strove to always lead by example, and mentor to help others. His gifted speaking abilities, charisma, positive mental attitude and smile could light up a room! Chris had a genuine selfless compassion toward helping others; making many positive impacts each and every day he lived. He loved spending time with his wife and family and working on their property with his wife Angela, of 30 years. His hobbies included; coaching and mentoring his sons, sports, muscle cars, corvettes, breeding working line German shepherds, rescuing horses, antiquing, and was an avid collector. Chris shared a deep love and compassion for animals, and will be greatly missed by his many fur babies. His legacy continues through the continued work, deep love and faith of his family, friends and co-workers. Chris believed in always "making it count", make your mark upon this earth, with the talents God has blessed you with, and always strive to make your impact. His final selfless act toward "making it count" was to Donate Life! Chris paid it forward helping countless others live on though the life-link organ donation program.
