Chris Rea Memorial Fund

Shocking, unexpected and devastating news came to Mallory the morning of March 15, 2018 when she was given word that her husband, and best friend Chris Rea, had passed away in his sleep while on an out of state work trip.

Chris worked for Mariani landscaping, and was an excellent horticulturist receiving many awards and honors in his field. He was known for his kind heart, and fun spirit. He and Mallory dated and eventually married in May 2014. It was beyond apparent how incredibly happy and in love with Mallory he was.

Chris would never have wanted Mallory to have to go through, or experience this kind of pain or face the challenge of all that she must deal with right now. Contributing to this gofundme page would help with funeral expenses, and provide support for Mallory while she tries to grieve, and get back on her feet during this immensely difficult time.
