Cristian's Celebration of Life

As most of you may know, Cristian recently passed away in a tragic hiking accident. We are starting this page since we aren't aware of his families financial situation and want to support them in any way possible.

Cristian had overcome many challenges, and personal struggles in his life and had completely turned his life around for the better. He was the type of person you would never forget you met and told you the truth when truth needed to be told. His contagious laugh lit up the room wherever he was and it was never a dull moment being with him. Even when times got tough, he would always turn it into a positive and crack jokes, even when it when it wasn't the best idea to be joking around. He was always himself and wasn't afraid of a new challenge. His personal strength and will power was inspiring and something to be looked up to.

One of his close friends that he spoke to the day before he passed let us know that Cristian had shared with him, earlier this summer he forced himself to go camping alone for one night. He said that being alone that night in the wilderness he realized that his fear wasn't being alone, it was being without his people. He said that night he realized how important the people in his life were to him, and that this final adventure of the summer he wanted to do alone so he could reconnect with that feeling.  The feeling of how important people were in his life.

We will always remember Cristian with a smile on his face and doing what he loved. May you rest in peace.
