Christopher (Chris) Schaefer of Dunkirk, Maryland passed away tragically and was taken home on the wings of his angel on Friday, December 6, 2019 at the age of 37. Chris was born in Clinton, Maryland on August 11, 1982 to Kimberly (Vermillion) and John Schaefer. Chris is the eldest brother to Sean Schaefer (Cristina), uncle to Jack and Gianna Schaefer, and eldest brother to Nicole Schaefer. He is from a very large family with many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather Paul Schaefer (Pepaw), maternal grandmother Loretta Vermillion (Grammy), and maternal grandfather Ronald Vermillion (Granpop).
Chris attended Mt. Harmony Elementary, Northern Middle, and Northern High School where he developed a love for sports and created many lifelong friendships. He not only enjoyed playing baseball and football, but was an avid Washington Capitals, Nationals, and Redskins fan. Chris was a dedicated, hard worker and so proud he was off and running with his own home improvement company. Chris' vibrant personality and contagious laugh lit up a room. He brought the utmost love and precious memories to his family and friends. He was deeply loved, will be missed terribly, and never forgotten by all those he shared his life with.
