Christoper Michael Buyers
It is with great sadness that we announce Chris' sudden passing on December 11, 2012. Son of Marilyn and Paul, nephew of Gary, Gayle, Bonnie, Tom and uncle to Danielle and loyal friend of ''the boys'', Peter, Neil, Martin, James, Glen, David, & Josh. His remarkable life was celebrated in a private service December 17, 2012. Born with a congenital sight disability December 31, 1969. He persevered through a regular school curriculum after being told it was not possible. He had to attend the school for the blind in Bradford. He proved them wrong. He progressed through public, secondary and graduated York University with a BA in business. He amazed everyone throughout his early days with his athletic ability. He was a member of the tennis team and the ski team. He earned his life saving certificate and used it as means to fund his educational expenses. He held and enjoyed senior positions in finance and marketing after graduation. He loved golf, scuba, & BBQ's. But, most of all, even sometimes difficult for him to travel there, he loved his cottage on Lake of Bays, where he could entertain his friends, drive his boat and be the person he really was. It is unimaginable that he has gone from our lives forever. It is not fair!
