On the morning of December 19, 2017, Chris Lawrence Storseth passed away at home in Helena, MT surrounded by his family. He was 40 years old. Christopher was born on June 4, 1977 at 2:55 am in Glendive, Montana. He was the first born son of Pete and Donna Storseth.
Chris was a happy go lucky kid. He spent lots of time with his brothers and family. Chris loved skateboarding and all water sports. If you could do it on the water he had to try it! He was always surrounded by so many great friends. Chris was never afraid to try anything new or to simply go against the grain to just see what would happen! He was an unbelievable man and he touched so many peoples' lives over the years.
Chris met his wife Mary in 1998 in Illinois while he was a Locomotive Engineer. They were married on September 2, 2000 in Davenport, Iowa. They had two beautiful and amazing boys, Ryan, 17 years old and Caleb, 10 years old. He also dearly loved the newest addition to the family, his dog, Meatball; they have spent every moment together for 5 months.
Chris has done so much in his short life. He was always excited to learn new things. He would not stop learning until he had mastered it. Chris graduated from Helena High School in 1996 and was a lifelong student of the School of Hard Knocks. He was interested in everything from art to music, politics, technology, real estate, well just about everything that could possibly be interesting. After he was an engineer, he became a general contractor and Real Estate broker.
He began his career in Illinois and continued pushing forward in Helena, MT. Chris built his first vision, The Regency Condominiums and put everything into making sure they were beautiful homes. After developing, he and his wife started a Property Management Company (Queen City Property Management.) In 2013 he and his family moved to Naples, Florida. He was a Real Estate Broker in Florida. He then found a passion for the web. He became a Microsoft developer and also built an amazing website, Tenantbook.com.
Chris found a new passion at the end of 2009. That passion was for Christ. He took a backpack trip to Israel to get as close to God as possible. There he became a man who tried to live his life by the Word of God. He was a man of great Faith. The Lord had changed his life in so many ways. He wanted to make sure that he did his part and spread the Word whenever he had the chance.
Christopher was an amazing, brilliant, loving, stubborn gift from God to anyone who truly knew him. Chris was a father, a son, a husband, a brother, and unforgettable and amazing friend to everyone who knew him. The world has truly lost not only a beautiful and brilliant mind, but a genuinely beautiful soul. Chris you will forever be missed by many, but he will never be forgotten.
Christopher is survived by his wife, Mary, two sons, Ryan and Caleb, parents, Pete and Donna Storseth, brother, Joe Storseth, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and many dear friends.
Christopher is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Richard and Phyllis Gindhart, paternal grandparents, Elizabeth and Walter Storseth, his brother, Ryan Matthew Storseth and uncle, Ken Storseth.
