Chris was taken from us suddenly by a car accident on March 3, 2008, at the age of 25. Chris lived life to its fullest every day. His passions for food, cars and music began as a toddler dancing to Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock n’ Roll” and developed into an eclectic taste in music, playing his beloved bass, and a string of car projects. Chris pursued a successful culinary career, cooking in London, Ottawa, and greater Vancouver. Chris loved his friends and family. Chris was born in London, Ontario, attended St. Peter’s Secondary School in Barrie, Fanshawe College and Douglas College.
Chris is desperately missed by his loving mother Nikki (Coquitlam), father Larry (Mission), grandmother Eileen Vincent (London, Ont), many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends including best friends Jesse, Jason and Rob. He is predeceased by his sister Angie, grandfather Cyril Vincent (his hero), and grandparents Norma and Eddy Shannon. A Celebration of Chris’s Life will be held on Saturday March 8 at 11 am at Maple Ridge Funeral Chapel, Maple Ridge B.C. In lieu of flowers donations to establish a scholarship for studying bass guitar may be made to Vancouver Community College Foundation (www.music.vcc.ca) in honor of Chris Shannon.
