hope 2

The one and only Kristopher Lee Hope was born April 4,1986 to the union of Ronnie and Santina Hope, in Cleveland Ohio. Kristopher grew to know Jesus at a very young age and recognized him as his lord and savior. Kristopher unfortunately passed away officially on March 9th, 2021. He was surrounded by his parents (Ronnie and Santina Hope), his brother (Ronnie Carter), and his sisters (Shemaine Martin, Sanetra, Ronnisa, and Santina Hope). He was a loving father, son, brother, and friend.

Kristopher really enjoyed being a father and leaves behind his four children; (Messiah, Karrell, Leron, and Logan Hope), whom he loved more than life itself. Some of Kris’s favorite pastimes included hanging with family and friends, playing chess or his game, listening to music, and most importantly looking at sports rather it was Basketball, Football or Boxing.

Kristopher had a very bright light about himself. He taught and touched many. He was the comedian of the family. It was never a dull moment when Kris was around and he never let a hard time last. He was the best son, brother, nephew, cousin, or friend anyone could ask for. He will truly be missed, and we will cherish his memories within our hearts forever.

Kristopher was an awesome role model and had wonderful co-parenting skills with the mother of his three children, Sheraiel Echols. He also spent the last three years in a committed relationship with his girlfriend, Robin Rankins.

Kris was proceeded in death by his Grandparents, Leroy Poole Sr., and Mary Earlene Poole. His Grandfather Raymond Williams. His two uncles, Leroy Poole jr., and Fred L. Poole.

Kris leaves to cherish his loving memory: His parents Ronnie and Santina Hope. His Grandmother Lizzie Williams. His four sons; Messiah Hope, Karrell Hope, Leron Hope, and Logan Hope. His brother, Ronnie Carter (Isha). His five sisters, Shemaine Martin (Shon Martin), Sanetra Hope (Dominick Carmichael), Ronnisa Hope (Dikimbrey Carmichael), Santina Hope, and Sheila Carter. Four loving Aunts Carolyn Willam, Belinda Pode. Alesia William and Gloria Poole. Three Uncles Johnnie Poole, Eric Williams, Dewayne William.

Kris was a fantastic uncle that was loved by all of his nephews; Eleven in total. (Taysean, Julian, Amir, Dominick jr., Damaree, Noah, Dayviyontay, Victor, Gregory, Ronnie, Anthony). Kris also cherishes his three nieces (Amiyah, Ciera, and Sharon). He also leaves behind one great niece (Andrea) and two great nephews, (DeAndre, and KeAndre). In addition, Kris leaves behind a host (and we do me host) of cousins and dear friends.

Kris truly touched us all with love, lets allow his legacy to continue in love for Kris.
