It is with great sadness the family of Christopher Thomas Dechow announces his passing due to complications from Type 1 Diabetes, on June 10 2019, at the age of 31 years.
Chris will be forever remembered and loved dearly by his parents, Brenda & Gerald Dechow, his siblings Gregory & Lauren Dechow, his dog Hurley, his aunt & godmother Linda Halloran, his aunts Anne Alley, Pamela Dechow, and Diana Dechow and his uncles Michael Alley, David Halloran, John Dechow, and Bob Dechow; as well as the numerous family members & friends whose lives he touched.
Chris was a kind hearted and adventurous soul with a zest for life and a propensity to make friends wherever he was. He was fearless and pursued many hobbies in his life: paintball, BMX biking, skateboarding, spearfishing, trucking, fishing, boating, & cooking. Chief among them was his love for the ocean and any activities related to it.
He graduated from the University of South Florida with a bachelor's degree in Business and pursued a career related to the ocean. His dream was to become a Ship Captain.
The family will host a private service for him in the days to come in addition to a larger celebration of life ceremony held at the beach in the near future.
