Kristopher B. Luginbill, 27 years old, from Bentonville, Ark., taken from us on April 28, 2014. He was born Nov. 27, 1986, in Manhattan, Kan., to Tony and Lana Luginbill.

He is survived by his parents; brothers, Hayden and Qwentin Luginbill; grandparents, Janice and Dennis Luginbill of Bella Vista, Norma and Jim Stoudt of Bella Vista, and Paige and Barbara Shuttleworth of Guthrie, Okla.; as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins who loved him dearly.

Kristopher worked at Pathfinder Inc. in Cave Springs, Ark. He loved going to his job every day, which allowed him to be a productive individual with lots of friends. He was active in Special Olympics, and enjoyed music, boating and being outdoors. He was a very loving young man and never met anyone that he didn’t like. He wanted people to know and love him, even though he could not express it with words. He loved being a big brother; Hayden and Qwentin made him very happy; he interacted with them in a very nurturing manner.

Kristopher leaves memories of the heart, and will always be remembered as we hear someone whistle, clap their hands, dancing and giving the biggest hugs imagined. We will love and miss Kris always.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 3, at 11 a.m. at Callison-Lough Funeral Home in Bentonville. Online condolence may be made at

In lieu of gifts, please make donations to the Downs Syndrome Society
