Chris Salamone Death, Obituary – It is difficult to put into words the enormity of this wonderful man’s influence on the course that my life has taken. Chris wasn’t just a friend; he was more of a brother to me than anything else. I can say with complete assurance that he had a substantial influence on the lives of each and every person with whom he connected in some form or another. This is true regardless of the nature of their relationship with him. Chris’s life serves as a shining example of the kind of life that every Christian ought to lead, and it’s easy to see why.
If Chris had something to add to our men’s small group on Tuesday nights, or if he had an opinion regarding the sermon that was delivered the previous Sunday, every man in the room would lean in and accept what Chris had to say. If Chris did not have something to contribute, or if he did not have an opinion regarding the sermon that was provided the previous Sunday, then no one would lean in. The fact that he had a cool head and an easygoing demeanor was, at the very least, reassuring.
Chris was never one to hold back when it came to letting other people know what his relationship with God meant to him, and he walked in the wisdom that came from God. Chris’s job as a deputy for Lee County required him to constantly interact with and transport convicted criminals. He would get this great big old smile on his face whenever he shared stories about his experiences with these individuals, and then he would add, in his calm cool voice, “You just gotta show em the love of Jesus man.”…
Chris Salomone, you are held in high esteem by a great number of people, and your presence in this world will be sorely missed. The “Silver Fox” will always be remembered with joy, and the “Hunters for Christ” community will continue to hold his legacy in the highest regard even after he has passed away. I am so grateful that we were given the opportunity to become acquainted with one another. Brother, I hope you have a restful snooze. You are completely at ease knowing that your Daddy is holding you now!
