Memorial Fund

My name is Michelle and I have been close friends with Wendy and Chris Zehm for over 20 years.  We all lost Chris on October 20, 2017.  He leaves behind his wife of 13 years, Wendy, and 3 young children; sons Aidan (11) and Tristan (9) and daughter Ryley (8).

Chris was well known for his love of hunting and fishing, his Vikings and Wild and his big smile and charisma.  He loved his hunting trips and target shooting with Aidan, watching football and hockey with Tristan and having Ryley paint his toenails, after he painted hers.  He loved laughing with Wendy and sharing his life with her; his wife and love of 21 years.


I have started this page on behalf of Chris's wife and kids.  Chris had no life insurance. Please share this page to reach the many people who have memories of Chris and may want to help.  His family continues to be grateful for the love and support everyone has shared.
