It is with Deep Sorrow and Heavy Hearts that the family of Christopher Carl English announce his sudden passing on November 21, 2019 at the young age of 36 years. Chris loved outdoor activities including seadooing and quadding in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter.
Also known to his sisters by the term of endearment ChrissyPoo – he delighted in teasing them just as much throughout the years.
Chris’ list of favorites included detailing his vehicles, home-made pizza making and chicken nuggets.
The lights of Chris’ life were his one-year old daughter, Quinn (Mouse) who had him wrapped around her little finger and his prized side-kick Cosmo.
Chris’ most memorable moments and best times in life were simply spending time with family and friends laughing, joking around and having fun.
Leaving to mourn his passing with fond and loving memories are his daughter, Quinn, his long-time companion, Megan Crocker, Mother Laura Duke, Father Patrick English, Sister Donna English, Sister Lori English (Wally McGrath), Brother Michael English (Milcah English), Megan’s parents Shawn & Beverley Compagnon and Sister Melanie Blagdon.
Chris treasured his nieces (Brianna, Sarah, Hannah, Alicia, Cali, and Isabella) and nephews (Isaac, Marcus, Geoff, and Nathan).
Special mention to Chris’ brothers from another mother – Jeff Francis, Steve Francis, Johnny Blagdon, Frankie Brake, Dylan Brake, and Justin Duke.
Also, a special mention to Chris’ Aunt Marie who was also like a second mother to him.
Chris is also survived by a large circle of extended family, friends and team members who loved him dearly.
A Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday November 27, 2019 at 10 a.m. at St. John The Baptist Catholic Parish, 3 Hospital Street, Fort McMurray Alberta.
*A Memorial Service in Fox Harbour, Newfoundland to follow – details available via Coombs Funeral Home in Placentia, Newfoundland*
