Chris had a great love for his family and leaves behind his mother Kathleen Zimmer, father Ron Zimmer, his dear brother, Maxwell 23yrs, and dear sister, Emily 17yrs.
Chris was born on November 5, 1993 in Los Angeles, California. He lived in Allen for the past 18 years and attended Green Elementary, Ericsson Middles School and was a 2012 graduate of Allen High School.
Since Chris was an infant, he had a special connection with all animals especially his beloved Bichon Frise, Lucy (now 15 ½ yrs old). So in lieu flowers, memorial donations may be given to the ASPCA in his name

As a father I can only say that there is nothing worse than losing a young person like Chris just when he was realizing who he was, what he was capable of, and understanding potential and his place in the world. My family and I will celebrate Christian life every day and will never forget what an immeasurable impact he has had on our lives.
We also know that, even in his all too short life he has had an impact on some of you and we hope that you will share that with us.
Please join us on Saturday to celebrate his life. The Zimmer Family
