Kill Devil Hills – With great sadness, we ask why, and cry, over the loss of such a beautiful person.  Chis lost his long struggle with heroin addiction in his home on Thursday, March 30.  Chris was a wonderful father to his 3 children, Kayley, Sid and Emit.  Chris also leaves behind, his mother, Pam Bradford, father, David Wachholz, brothers, Rob &, James, Aunt Sandy, Uncle, Jim, Aunt Terry, Uncle Sammy, Aunt Betty. And his most beloved cousins and great cousins, Jen, Terry, Sophia, Bailey, Cayden, Shiloh, Ethan, Scarlett, Cyrus, Cody, Max, Bradley, Becky, Alysia, Killian, Sierra.

Chris touched so many lives with his kindness and generosity.  There will be emptiness that can never be filled without him.  He loved the Greatful Dead and his Greatful Dead family, all the wonderful friends that believed in him and supported him on his journey through rehabilitation.

A “Celebration of Life” will be held on Sunday, April 2, 2017 from 2-3:00 pm at the Gallop Chapel, Nags Head- 6917 S. Croatan highway.
