Although Chris was born in LA, he moved with his family to British Columbia, Canada when he was a young boy. He remained living on the west coast of Canada until he met his soulmate in life; Shelley Brown and moved to Dorchester, Ontario in 2008. Chris is a published photographer and author. He was a fire fighter in Abbotsford BC, a Hypnotherapist, and a Psychic Medium. Chris also had his own radio show for a few years. Chris really enjoyed making cars at Cami Automotive the last several years. He was an exceptional dancer and an accomplished foodie. Chris will be best remembered for his incredible sense of humour, his quick wit, his love for reading and the caring way he had for others.
He was deeply in love with Shelley and it was obvious to anyone who saw them together, the deep love they shared. Chris was the oldest with 3 brothers. He is survived by his parents, Patricia and Lesley Cormier, his brothers Clay, Wade and Michael; his children Jesse Ross Gadsby and Brianne Cormier (Garrett Swanson); and his wee grandbaby Nora. He will be deeply missed by his step children; Kailey, Shea and Brady van der Spank, as well. Chris will be fondly remembered by his uncles Butch and Mike, his aunts Gwen and Barbara and many loving cousins and friends from Los Angeles, BC and Ontario. Chris will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Special thanks to Dr. Michael Sanatani of the London Regional Cancer program and all the wonderful doctors and nurses who cared for Chris at London Health Sciences Centre and in particular Palliative care. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Christopher’s name to the Canadian Cancer Society. Please visit Chris' obituary notice on Facebook.
