Christopher Gedraitis

Born- 12/11/1975

Died- 03/23/2005

30 years old

Christopher’s nickname was “Beast.” His friends call the “gentle beast.” Wow, what friends he had. So many to count. He loved to play sports and was all-Catholic (football) at St. John Neuman H.S. If you met him for the first time, he was your friend for life. He was a son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, nephew, cousin, and Godfather. He had the Gift of life, friends and family that love him no matter what. His 6’4” body (205 lbs) made him stand out, wherever he was.

A smile so big, it lit a room. We will never forget this gentle beast. Every year since he died, his friends throw a fund raiser, in his honor. The proceeds go to Our Lady of Mt. Caramel’s football team (the Warriors) and a summer camp for teaching children “how to play football.” It’s called “Beast Camp.” What an honor it is to have a wonderful son in our lives. Now everyone has a big smiley angel on their shoulders. He’s still looking out for us.

Love and thank you,
