Christopher Gregory Walker

NORMAN — Christopher Gregory Walker, 19, died March 12, 2013, in Alpharetta, Ga.

Funeral Mass will be Monday at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, 535 Rucker Rd. Alpharetta, GA 30004 on Monday at 10 a.m.

Chris was a remarkable young man. While senseless violence took him away from the ones who loved him, they will remember him for the many hats that he wore.

As a faith and family oriented man, Chris understood the importance of the people around him and the role of God in his life. As a full time student, Chris understood the importance of education, and was still able to balance a very successful job at Sears.

As a human being, he had a profound understanding of the world around him and he was able to smile in spite of it. This wonderful smile complimented his sense of humor and bright demeanor.

His true passion was music and he always took time to nourish that passion. In a musical field filled with negativity, Chris stood out as a message of positive. His lyrics were from the heart. He was a man with class who connected with all he came in contact with. He will be remembered fondly.

At 19, Chris leaves behind a brother, Ben; a father and mother, Mary Jo and Gregory; along with many more friends and family, whom he touched so deeply.

Visitation will be 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday at Northside Chapel, 12050 Crabapple Rd., Roswell, GA 30075.
