Doing The Christian Walk With A Funky Strut

It’s Rocktober 16th, y’all.

on October 16, 2013

A day to celebrate the birth and life of a man who brought a lot of joy to a lot of people.

Never one to miss a good time, Christopher James Allen left us in April of this year to go where the REAL party’s at.

But before he left, he taught those of us who knew him how to live.  He made a point to make newcomers feel welcome.  He always had an encouraging word when people were down.  He always had a dumb joke or hilarious story to bust up the tension when some of us were taking life too seriously.  He was a great listener and didn’t go spreading people’s business.  He enjoyed good conversation with good friends over good food and drinks–he was always a blast to hang out with.  He spent a lot of time sowing positivity and life into the young people in his life and in his neighborhood, helping them realize their potential.

Was he a saint? Far from it.  But who of us is??  At the end of the day, he was a guy comfortable in his own skin and did a lot to help others feel the same.  He made lives better in his time here on Earth.  Period.  I celebrate his life today and consider it a huge blessing and honor to have had his life cross mine.  I know I’m a better person for having known him.  I thank God for bringing him into this world 42 years ago today.

Devoted dad, empowering coach, poet, artist, singer, comedian, dreamer, life of the party, compassionate human being and wonderful friend,

Chris Allen.
