Christopher “Chris” M. Saenz, aka “Creekie,” “Badow,” of Waukesha, died unexpectedly on Thursday, January 1, 2015, at the age of 44. He was born in Waukesha on December 18, 1970, the son of Samuel and Gloria (nee Hernandez) Saenz.
Chris loved sports, UFC and boxing and was the ultimate Dallas Cowboys fan. He was a hard worker and would do anything to support his family. Chris was a simple person, but had a big heart and touched many people in his life. He had many hurdles in his life but he always took them on, never complaining and always prevailing in the end. Chris loved being with his family and he will always be remembered as a loving and devoted father, grandfather, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin and friend to many.
He will be sadly missed by his children, Kimberlie and Jordan Saenz of Waukesha; his grandchildren, Diamond Saenz-Smith and Gabriel Saenz; his sisters, Rosario Saenz of San Antonio, Texas, Julie Ann Saenz Ahmadi of Austin, Texas, Henrietta (Dave) Long of Waukesha, and Eleanor (Dale) Solon of Brookfield; and his brother, Robert (Debra Parker) Saenz of Milwaukee. He is further survived by his aunts and uncles, Paul (Diane Hughes) Hernandez, Peter (Roxanne) Hernandez, Ray (Karen) Martinez, Nancy Hernandez and Mary Mendez; and his close and dear friends, Sara Hernandez, Lee Hernandez, Tony Neira and Paul (Jun) Cotton; along with nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and many friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
