Obituary for Mr. Christopher Jordan Van Buskirk

December 17, 1980 - August 18, 2021
Indianapolis, Indiana | Age 40


"If a picture paints a thousand words
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show
The you I've come to know

If a face could launch a thousand ships
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you
You're all that's left me too
And when my love for life is running dry
You come and pour yourself on me

If a man could be two places at one time
I'd be with you
Tomorrow and today
Beside you all the way

If the world should stop revolving
Spinning slowly down to die
I'd spend the end with you
And when the world was through
Then one by one the stars would all go out
Then you and I would simply fly away"
-I will always love you Chris-Mom

Christopher "Chris" Jordan Van Buskirk, 40, passed away August 18, 2021.

There will not be any traditional services for Chris. He could not be in the military but if he had he'd expect a horse drawn caisson & gun salute. So that was out. He also discussed a Viking funeral ship that would be set afloat and flaming arrows shot toward it, but again, that was not an option. So to celebrate Chris's life, please each and everyone of you, do so in your own away. Whether that is by gaming, having a bonfire, releasing a balloon, or just scream at the sky. Chris connected with so many people around the world through gaming and social media.

He is survived by his mother, Sally; his fur babies, Marley, Angel Bug, and Michael Baboo Bear; his uncles, Bud, Mike, & Reed; aunts, Terry & Cathy; cousins, Jason & David; his father, Kevin Bruce; and special friends, Ellis & Anita.

Christopher had worked for several places. He had worked as a historical interpreter at Connor Prairie, security for several companies, Segway tours at the canal in Indianapolis, and for Stericycle.

No Services Scheduled.
