Chris Carlisle Memorial Fund

$50,233 of $50,000 goal

Created August 20, 2017
Chris Carlisle, 1st Sgt USMC (Ret) went to his glory on August 18, 2017. Chris was well known for his bravery during his 3 tours in OEF/OIF, where he received a Purple Heart after suffering combat wounds while serving with 3/5. Chris lost his life while racing with the Warrior Built organization in the Vegas to Reno event in a tragic dirt bike accident.

Many people knew Chris as a Marine - but he was so much more- a devoted father who loved his son Dylan and two daughters Megan and Hailey; a loving son to his parents Melinda and Mike; the oldest sibling, role model and "leader of the pack" to Brian, Dana, Kimee, and Tyler; a fun-loving uncle to his 7 nieces and nephews, and a loyal friend to many. His faith in God and love for helping others made him incredibly special to those who knew him. Chris was passionate about helping other Marines, and additionally served with the Wounded Warrior and Mighty Oaks programs.

Chris' mom Melinda has taken on the emotional and financial burdens of transporting his remains from Nevada back to California, as well as the burial and funeral costs. It is the desire of friends of the family as well as her other children that she not be burdened by this cost in this time of incredibly heartbreaking loss. Any additional funds will be placed in trust for his daughters college expenses.

Thank you.

1st Sgt Chris Carlisle was laid to rest last Tuesday at Riverside National Cemetery. The ceremony was beautiful and Chris was escorted from Yucca Valley to Riverside by a truly awesome procession that included the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, The Patriot Guard, family and countless motorcycle riders who came out to pay their respects.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for the donations, the kind words, the attendance at both services and receptions, and for honoring Chris. We have nearly reached our goal and Chris' mom Melinda is grateful for everything.

With love and gratitude,

Jennee, on behalf of the Carlisle Family
