Christopher shined brighter than the rest of us. He lit up a room and never knew a stranger. He loved nothing more than to converse hours on end with both friends and acquaintances alike. Christopher had exquisite musical taste and would even offer pointers to improve your own. He will live on in the hearts of all who knew him and help them shine just a bit brighter. 

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Mary and Jose Franco.

Christopher is survived by his father, Jose Franco; his mother, Jacqueline Ann, nee Miller Sipes; and his sister, Alyssa Franco.  He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Memorials may be made to the Franco family.
