February 14, 1987 - September 3, 2019
Christopher was a wonderful Valentine gift to his parents, Gary and Angela Gilbert. Cupid shot an arrow through all our hearts when we saw him.
Christopher was born and raised in Eureka. He loved riding his bike around town, meeting new friends and running into old friends. Christopher cared deeply for his friends and family.
We are mourning the loss of a special and good young man and are deeply saddened by his early passing. His journey on Earth is over, but we will forever honor him in our hearts and memories.
Christopher is survived by his parents, Gary and Angela Gilbert; two daughters, Zoey and Lee Lee; his brothers Joe Stucky of Eureka and Brian Fuchs of San Diego; grandparents Pearl Walter and Mitchell and Pat Gilbert, all of Eureka, and many uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and extended family.
We will be having a Celebration of Life to celebrate Christopher’s time on Earth on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019 at 1 p.m. at 3725 Park Street, off Myrtle Avenue. Follow the road all the way downhill. This will be a potluck; if you can bring a dish or if you can’t please join us to share memories, tears and smiles of our loved one.
