IMG 1087

Christopher Westly Burford was born on February 24, 1974 in Dayton, Ohio to Ronald and Barbara Burford.

Christopher graduated from Bishop Hartley High School and attended Columbus State College. Christopher loved underground rap music, wrestling, comedy, and listening to talk radio especially WDIA. He loved his family, his children, and his community.

Christopher’s best gifts were the gift for life through multiple organ donations. He was definitely a blessing to others.

Christopher entered the Heavenly home on January 2, 2018. Christopher is preceded in death by his grandmother, Annie Marie Morris; grandfather, Reverend Zilmon Morris; and father, Ronald Burford.

Christopher leaves to cherish his memory, loving mother, Barbara; sons, C.J., Devonte, and Treyvonne; daughter, Natalie and Alexandria; and brother, Michael.

Christopher will truly be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing and loving him.

  6. To the family of Christopher, you have my condolences in your loss. Death is one of the most difficult situations families must face. It hurts so much when the family circle has been broken but be assured that it is only temporary. By means of God’s Kingdom, He promises at Revelation 21:4, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.
