He was raised in Louisiana, graduated from Baton Rouge High School and went on to complete his education at Cornell University, where he graduated with honors with a double major in Government and History. After University, Christopher was admitted to Officers Candidate School, where he went on to serve his country in the United States Navy.

Leonce, Janice and family, we are so saddened to hear about Christopher! We pray that the God of all comfort will comfort you in his homegoing. Isaiah 57:1-2 says, the righteous perishes, and no man takes it to heart. merciful men are taken away, while no one considers that the righteous is taken away from evil. He shall enter into peace; they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness . May God continue to bless and keep you and your family.
