Christopher Jon Reeves
Aug. 2, 1973 — Aug. 19, 2015
Christopher Jon Reeves passed away August 19, 2015, peacefully at home. Chris was born August 2, 1973, in Tucson, Arizona.
Chris grew up in Tucson, a city that he would always call his home. He moved to Wisconsin in 2003 where he met the love of his life, Thea, whom he married in 2006. Not only did he find the woman of his dreams, he also began to pursue another huge passion, the Green Bay Packers.
Chris was a devoted father to his two children, Cierra and Benny. They were his entire world and loved them with a fierceness that was apparent to anyone he talked to.
Everyone who knew Chris knew him to be one of the most passionate people you would ever meet. He put his heart and soul into every endeavor he had. He loved to laugh and share stories, stories that would bring you to tears from laughing so hard. He loved spending time with his friends and family and always wanted to be surrounded by people.
Chris spent his life helping anyone who came across his path. He always believed in second chances — no matter what a person did he would help pick them up and give them the shirt off his back if that’s what they needed.
Chris was survived by Thea (Grout) Reeves (wife), Cierra Morris (daughter), Benny Reeves (son), Ben and Jo Ann Reeves (parents), Jenny Reeves, Sheri Reeves, Lori (Perry) Wysong (sisters), Sebastian Morris and Otto Eisfeldt (grandsons), Paul and Marion Greszler (grandparents), three nieces, five nephews, and many extended family members.
He was preceded in death by Norman and Margaret Reeves (grandparents), Robert Reeves (uncle), Paul Greszler (uncle) and Jodi Monfred (cousin).
Memorial services will be held on Saturday August 29, at Schmutzler-Vick Funeral Home, 500 Welsh Road, Watertown, WI 53094. A time of visitation will start at noon and the memorial service will begin at 3 pm.
