Chris developed a love of deer hunting at an early age by going with his father, Bruce. He was most at peace hunting and fishing in the mountains of West Virginia. Chris would say his greatest achievement in life is his lovely daughter, Amber. Chris was employed as a welder by Pennington Plumbing and Heating.

In addition to his parents, Bruce and Donna, those left to cherish his memory include his wife, Pennie McNeill of Sophia; daughter, Amber Christine McNeill of Ft. Pierce, Fla.; stepson, Mark Hatcher; stepgranddaughters, Alyssa Hatcher and Hailey Hatcher; sister, Cynthia Langel and husband Paul of Ft. Pierce, Fla.; brother, Dr. Brian McNeill and fiancée, Denice Georgi of Atlanta, Ga.; nephew, Andrew Langel; niece, Ashley Langel.
