I was very sorry to learn of Khristan’s passing. I was sometimes at work at Corvallis at the same time as Khristan and although we only had brief moments together he always had a smile to offer and a nice or funny thing to say.  I offer my condolences to his family and friends.

Kathy, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I was on vacation when my mom called me with the news. I remember how you always talked about Khristan on the drives to and from work for many years and how he had grown into a wonderful young man. My heart aches for you and your family. You are in my prayers and thoughts.

I am so so sorry for your loss.  I went to Jr. High and High School band with Khristan.  He was always happy and had a big smile on his face.  He was a very sweet and funny guy.  My prayers are with all of you.  I pray you find peace and comfort in this time of grief.

I'm so saddened to hear of Khristan's passing. I'll always remember having Mentos and Handi-Snacks for lunch at West School in 5th and 6th grade with Khristan and playing together at recess. And later being in jazz band and concert band together in Jr. High and High School.  No matter what, he always had a smile on his face and such a bubbly personality.  You are in my prayers. May God bring you peace.

God Bless,
Angie (Meade) Funfar

My daughter Heather put it best, she said " I felt like I lost part of my childhood".    Just remember the good times at the lake-hell we lived there.
Those ancient turtles they rode.  I got the picture of him on one.  Andy first jump off the diving board at the hotel we stayed at-thanks to Dick's pool.  Got that picture too.  Love

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. May God comfort you through this time. Numbers 6:24-26
