On Sunday February 28, 2021 my brother Christian Lee Parra was taken from us. In an instant his life was cut short for no logical reasoning. The life of a good man was taken in a moments notice. We will never understand or comprehend this ill fated action or ever forget this godforsaken day. As I sit here and write this, the only words I can express are my pain and suffering. The pain of losing a loved one is something I think everyone can relate to but the loss of my brother is devastating to me and my family. My brother was a well regarded soul and considered one of the nicest individuals anyone would ever want to meet. He was an enabler, someone who was able to motivate you, into moving forward in your life and obtaining personal growth. He was a gem that shined so brightly in my life, in my world. He was a sneaker collector and a family man. Two things he cherished deeply.
Our family, the City of Jersey City and the sneaker community have lost an amazing kind hearted soul who will forever hold a place in our minds and hearts. There are no words to describe this tragic loss for us. We ask that you find it in your heart to help my family through these unknown and difficult times. Christian leaves behind 3 beautiful children; his daughters Lena, Ava and his son Sir. They will grow up without a father, his wife without a husband, a mother and father without their son and a brother without his best friend. We do this request for the kids and his wife so they can have a chance at life. We ask that you all remember Chris as I will for the delightful person he was, and the unforgettable memories he gave to us all. You will be missed my brother, Rest in Eternal Peace at the side of our Good Lord.
