Our beloved son, brother and friend left us on March 18, 2012 at the age of 38.

Chris was born on December 18, 1973 one minute before his twin brother Carrey in Bountiful, Utah. The son of Wayne and Uta Beers. He graduated from Woods Cross High where he played football and assisted in numerous sports. He served an honorable mission for the LDS Church. He later touched the lives of countless youth as an EFY counselor. He had a passion to travel the world and touched the lives of friends on 5 continents, always serving those he met on his trips. He loved and lived life to the fullest, always planning another adventure.

Chris had a magnetic personality and all he met instantly became his friend. He had the ability to lighten the room with his amazing smile. If someone was in need Chris would find a way to meet and exceed that persons needs. He truly exemplified charity, the pure love of Christ. This love for all people carried over to his various jobs, where all knew and loved him. He loved the years he spent working at the Church office building in the missionary and travel departments. He loved associating with those whom he currently worked with at the U of U Hospital. He had a great love for all of Gods creatures, especially his cats whom he loved dearly.

Survivors include: Parents, Woods Cross; sisters, Debbie (Todd) Allred, Layton, Kim (Kirk) Bradford, Meridian, ID; brothers, Carrey (Missy) Beers, San Diego, CA; Willey (Emily) Beers, Logan; 16 nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his brother Jeff.

Terrible tragedy, very sad to see someone go so early because he couldn't quite fit into the Mormon square box. At least his family will no longer have to be embarrassed by his homosexuality. Loving and accepting... hmmm

el_toro: That was an awful thing to say. I am certain his family loved him deeply and from what they wrote, were very proud of their son. Loads of people take their own lives every day and for every reason... it is getting tiresome that it is always because someone is gay or some religion is blamed - ridiculous and inappropriate comment to be sure. Tisk-tisk.
