Christopher M. Chaput, 44, of Bristol
BRISTOL — Christopher M. Chaput, 44, of Bristol, Vt., passed away Oct. 30, 2019, surrounded by loving family and friends after a brief and defiant battle with cancer.
He was born May 12, 1975, in Waterville, Maine, to Victor and Laura (Chapman) Chaput.
Chris is survived by his wife Trichia (Estey) Chaput of Bristol, father Victor Chaput Sr. of Ferrisburgh, brother Victor “Rick” Chaput Jr. of Vergennes and sister April Fredette of Middlebury.
Chris’s love and passion for firearms and the outdoors was matched only by his love of the many nieces and nephews who would spend time with their adventurous uncle who would spoil and adore them. He was known by many as the longtime sporting goods sales associate at Wal-Mart in Williston, Vt., where he worked for nearly 20 years. He truly enjoyed the many co-workers and customers he met over the years, many who would ask for him by name and stayed in contact during his absence from the store.
Chris has requested in lieu of flowers donations be made to the Children’s Miracle Network.
A wake will be held at the Brown McClay Funeral Home in Vergennes, Vt., on Monday, Nov. 4, from 4-7 p.m. Funeral services will be held at the same location Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 11 a.m. Burial will follow at the Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven, Vt., with a celebration of life at the Eagles Club in Vergennes immediately afterwards.◊
