Pastor Christopher Curman Chauvin, born December 25, 1955 and died on December 5, 2012. It is not a religion, it is a relationship. He was a devoted husband, father, brother and PawPaw. He enjoyed life itself, especially leading others to the Lord, singing, playing music and cooking. If he could help someone in need he would.
