Obituary

Christopher Robert Demian, 

Sunrise: 12 May 1968 – Sunset: 8 Sept 2020

Christopher Robert Demian, 52, was born in Cleveland Ohio, to Robert & Mary Ann Smith. 

Chris grew up loving sports and was an avid fan of the Browns, Cavaliers, and the Indians – he truly enjoyed every game he could take in. Chris also enjoyed golf and loved perfecting his game every chance he got. His love of music, especially of ‘80’s tunes was a common thread with anyone he met. He kept Publix sub sandwich makers in business, it was one of his favorite pleasures. 

Even in his childhood, Chris was slow to anger and always a genuine person. He embodied akind and friendly disposition, which helped to bring him success as an entrepreneur. He was a selfless and caring man, always putting others first; especially his family. Chris was a devoted and loving father. His time with his girls was the highlight of his days and put the sparkle in his eyes. He patiently would go fishing or bike riding with them and was, “the sweetest person in the world.” 

Chris is survived by: his wife of fourteen years, Philay Rakchhat Demian and their two daughters, McKenzie (13) and Madyson (11); daughter, Taylor (21) and son, Jordan (20); his parents, Robert & Geraldine Demian; brother, Craig (Michelle) Demian; sister, Jen (Rick) Sams; and a host of other relatives and friends. 

Chris returned home to his Maker too soon for his many loved ones left behind.
