Christopher Russell Malone, affectionately known as Chris and or CH, was a loving father, son, uncle, and other subtitles that he was given since birth. Chris suddenly passed away on June 9th, 2022 at the young age of 39.
Chris was born to Deboraha and Russell Malone on December 23rd, 1982, who took their places in heaven in 2016 and 2017. Chris was the third of many children. Chris attended multiple Akron City Schools. During his childhood he developed a passionate relationship with cooking and bringing joy with his food.
Chris had a heart that was full of love and laughter. Chris loved spending time in the kitchen cooking meals, and he enjoyed “playing the game.” Chris’s most joyful times were when he was around family and friends, while singing, dancing, making jokes, and let him tell it “Getting lit.” It’s his love for laughter and jokes that we will miss most of all.
Christopher’s oldest princess, Amillian “Milly” (Starr) was born in 2002’; his younger princess, Taegen aka “Mini Martha” (Delvia) was born in 2017’. Both of whom will miss their dad greatly. Christopher took great pride in being a father, brother, and friend to many.
