It is with much sadness that we share this news, Christopher Alan Kinch, 45, passed away on July 3, 2019 and he joined the angel’s. Christopher fought a battle with melanoma cancer that started on his back, as just a simple mole, and he won. The cancer returned a second time, this time appeared in his lymph nodes and he won again. The third battle of cancer, returned and spread to his brain and he was not able to successfully fight the cancer that beseeched him and win it but he certainly tried and gave it his all.
Christopher was survived by his mother, Liz Kinch; father, Robert (Bob) C. Kinch Jr.; brother, Robert (Bobby) C. Kinch the Third; Sister, Nicole Kinch; Grandmother, Ruby Kinch, Nephew, Robert (Robi) C. Kinch the Fourth; Nieces: Raelyn J. Kinch and Rylea M. Kinch; Aunt, Patty Dillard; Uncle, Jerry (Yingshuang) Kinch; Uncle, Ben Dunn; Aunt, Peg Fasteggi; A host of cousins: Colleen Holbrook, Michael Schaller, Donna Harder, Amy Lopez, Marcus Lopez, Casey (Nancy) Dillard and Nick Dillard (Ryan).
Christopher Alan Kinch was born on July 9, 1973 to Robert and Liz Kinch. Chris had cerebral palsy and managed to go to regular high school, helped on sports teams in whatever way he could. He learned to drive a car and after many years, he finally got himself a great Mercury that he was so proud of. He finished two years of college and worked many jobs but because of his disability he felt he never achieved a permanent placement or career. Success always felt out of his grasp and no one tried harder to achieve a “good job” more than he did, it was his ultimate goal! The last ten years, Chris, began photographing wild life. He had a gift and loved doing it. He spent many hours at the wildlife refuge searching for animals, birds, crocks, or even plant vegetation he would come upon. He would share these pictures with his family and the world. He had a dream to make post cards from his photos. He loved The Miami Dolphins Football Team, He was a steady supporter! Chris loved his family and he just gave them his all and only wanted to be accepted and loved himself. He wasn’t perfect but he sure was the closest thing on this side of heaven. He tried so hard to be better at everything he attempted and not allow his disability to hold him back. If you asked him, “Do you need help?” He often replied with, “Nah, I don’t need any help.” This family is so blessed that Chris was given to them for almost 46 years. We have many memories we can hang onto and his uncontrollable laughs when he shared jokes to remember him by. We hope you are standing tall and proud in heaven Chris and don’t you forget to keep your eye on us but don’t be pulling any funny stuff! You are loved and so missed!
