Harbour, Christopher Wayne

Sponsored by:

In loving memory of Chris Harbour, a devoted husband, a courageous Army Airborne Infantryman, and a passionate lover of the great outdoors. Chris was more than a soldier; he was a beacon of strength, loyalty and unwavering commitment. He never backed down from a challenge and was ready and willing for every mission.

Born on a crisp winter day, he grew up with the wind, thunderstorms and the sun on his face. He always brightened a room with his beautiful smile. His love for adventure led him to the military where he found purpose and camaraderie among his fellow warriors. As an Airborne Infantryman, Chris soared through the skies, his parachute carrying him to distant lands. He faced danger head on, never flinching in the face of adversity. His brothers-in-arms admired his courage, and his leadership inspired those around him. Chris was also a combat lifesaver. He was a very compassionate man.

But, beyond the uniform and the battlefield, Chris was a big family person. His heart belonged to his beloved wife, Fawn and his five biological children, Chelsea, Chase, Faith, Brook, Gavin and his three step-children Racheal, Michael and Meagan. He cherished every moment spent with them. The laughter, shared meals and bedtime stories. His eyes sparkled when he watched any of them kick a soccer ball or enjoy a day at the river, or a good old camping trip with all the kids chasing fireflies. He also enjoyed teaching his grandchildren Grace, Rayan Jr., Logan, Caleigh and Bradley new things all the time. They would go exploring for bugs and rocks and learn the safety of the outdoors. Yosemite was one of Chris’s favorite places to be. Nature was his sanctuary. Chris reveled in the wilderness, the whispering pines, the rugged trails and the star-studded nights. He taught his children to appreciate the beauty of the world, taking them on camping trips and teaching them to identify constellations. The family’s fondest memories were made around campfires, marshmallow sticks in hand as Chris spun tales of bravery and wonder. His love for the outdoors extended to fishing trips, where he patiently taught the kids and grandkids how to cast a line and reel in the biggest catch. And when spring arrived, Chris transformed their garden into a colorful oasis, planting flowers, plants and vegetables with the kids, teaching them the magic of renewal.

Chris Harbour, you were more than a soldier, you were a hero, a protector, and a beacon of love. Your memory will forever echo through the rustling leaves, the mountain peaks and the starlit skies. May your spirit soar, just as you did when you leaped from planes into the unknown. May you find eternal peace among the clouds, forever watching over your family from the heavens above.

With love and gratitude, We Love You always and forever, your family! You will never leave our heart.

Written by, wife Fawn and niece Riley.
