Christian was born on July 28, 2005 in Fresno, CA. God welcomed Christian to his Kingdom on October 26, 2013. From the moment of Christian’s birth, everyone knew that he was special. His positive morale brought laughter to all, his laughter brought joy, his joy brought love, and from his love, he showed us what true compassion meant. Christian was a natural born leader.
His pure heart and love for everyone. He honored God and lived by faith. He's truly an angel who left an everlasting footprint.
Christian was an outgoing 8-year old boy who was full of life. He lived in Rochester, MN. It was here where he attended Sunset Terrace Elementary School and brought smiles to students of all ages. He was always active, laughing, joking, and constantly pointing out the positive side of all situations. He spent his days loving cars, running around playing football and tag, playing piano, riding his bike, collecting Pokémon cards, and even volunteering with his father at various missions and religious functions. He also loved hanging out with his friends, playing his Wii, and fighting his BeyBlades toys.
On the morning of October 25, 2013 Christian’s siblings woke up to prepare for school like any ordinary day, only to find that he was not awake and no longer breathing. He was taken to Mayo Clinic where he was given further treatment. A CT scan was performed and it revealed that Christian had suffered from a brain aneurysm that morning.
On Saturday, October 26, 2013 at 10:15 AM, Christian was pronounced brain dead. On Sunday, October 27th at 11:00 AM, Christian was taken off of life support. It was always his dream to grow up and help children to achieve their dreams and goals. With a short life, yet a huge heart and the will power to help children, Christian donated his kidneys, livers, pancreas, and his heart so that his heart valves may be used to replace damaged heart valves in future patients.
Although Christian is no longer here with us in flesh, his spirit and memories will continue to touch us. His actions and words proved that the life you live can long out last the time spent on Earth. Christian will forever be remembered as a boy with little feet that were able to fill such big shoes with strides some grown men has yet taken. Christian’s legacy has taught an entire community that a person’s life is not dictated by the amount of time spent living, but rather by the amount of lives you touch.
