Christopher Dean Adams, 38, passed away unexpectedly on August 14, 2023.  He graduated from Menchville High School in 2003 and had attended Peninsula Catholic High School and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School.  During his school years he enjoyed playing baseball at Warwick Little League, soccer with PC and Menchville, and basketball in the church league and PC.  Many teammates and competitors have fond memories of their chance to join in comradery with Christopher.  He was a Cub Scout and bridged to be a Boy Scout.  Chris (as he was known to his friends) liked the company of his friends and being with family as he had many relatives near and far.  Christopher liked traveling with his Mom & Dad, his sister, Alison and his brother, Philip as he grew up.  He was glad he could visit Big Sky, Montana on his own to see his sister and go snowboarding.  Christopher was easygoing and had a good sense of humor.  He especially liked Monster trucks when he was young (watching videos endlessly!), cool cars as he got older, and would engage in interesting conversations about sports, politics and the latest documentary or movie he watched on TV. 

Everyone liked Christopher and are remembering him as being respectful, attentive, and fun loving. A particularly fond memory was when Christopher was in the Mt. Carmel ten-year-old church league basketball team in the tournament finals.  Excitement and nerves seemed to overtake this middle of the ranking team against one of the better ones.  At halftime they found themselves down fourteen to zero.  Perseverance and determination brought them to a score fourteen, all at the end of regulation.  There was no letdown from losing in overtime compared to what they had accomplished.  Christopher poured his heart and soul into that game while being the best teammate, competitor and a good sport.  All who witnessed the game agreed it was something special as was Christopher in all things.  He spent a few years living in Richmond where he was a delivery driver for Amazon.  Recently, he worked at George’s chicken processing company in Harrisonburg.  He is survived by his loving family – parents, Mark and Susan; sister, Alison (Shane Hammitt), and brother, Philip.  He will be fondly remembered by great-aunt, Bonnie Tingle, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends near and far, here on earth and those departed before him. 

Visitation will be from 5:00-8:00 p.m. Thursday, October 26, 2023 at Weymouth Funeral Home, 12746 Nettles Dr, Newport News.

The Funeral Mass will be at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 27, 2023 at  Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church (100 Harpersville Rd, Newport News).  The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. 

The Mass will take place in St. Michaels’s Hall, due to church renovations, 144 Harpersville Road. Parking is available at the church and hall.

A Memorial Reception will follow the Mass at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 12742 Nettles Dr., Newport News.

A private interment will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks you to contribute to the Food Bank in your community.  Christopher would have liked that.  All of us in his family thank everyone who has shown their love and support and fond memories of Our Christopher.  We love him and miss him so much and we know he is now at peace. God rest his soul.

We are still in absolute shock and disbelief over this news. Chris was one of the most salt of the earth, good natured people you'd ever meet. He was the type of person people described when they were referencing the ideal friend. I hope he knew how loved he was in life. Some of my greatest childhood memories involve Chris, because he was the type of person that brought other people together and made people smile.

He leaves a huge hole in the world that will not be easily filled.
