Christian had a passion for working hard and enjoying life. He tackled anything that came his way, and enjoyed physical sports.

Christian was an avid player of video games, especially Minecraft, Call of Duty, and Fortnite.

One of the only memory's I have is when Christian had his friend Gregory over, and Christian had something made out of wood and was hitting the couch that Gregory was on and then Gregory moves his leg and Christian hits it and I remember Gregory being in so much pain.

Christian was smart, kind, & brave. Everyone who knew him, loved him. I was blessed by his presence at Desert Palms as his teacher & cross country coach. As he got older, he was still respectful & would say “Hi, Ms. Palmisano!” every time I saw him, with that contagious smile of his. He would always ask if he could help with anything, & I could trust him to do it. He was a leader, & all of his peers looked up to him. He could make the whole class laugh, & also help settle them down. Anytime I’d let him, he would help a classmate finish their assignment or comfort them if they needed to cool off. He was so good to his friends. He would never hesitate to have their backs. At practice, they would beg to do relay races so that they could all be on a team of their own & be competitive & cheer each other on. He was a good athlete & was so excited to finally get to be in a school sport & wear a jersey. & most of all, have more time getting to do something with his friends.

I could always call on him to answer a question, even if he didn’t have his hand raised, because I knew he knew the answer. He was a thoughtful writer, & school work came easy to him. I remember on aim high night when we did a wax museum for the American Revolution, he showed up in a full costume. We were so impressed. Most of the kids didn’t want to do it, but he thought it was funny & couldn’t help but smile. He made it fun for everyone there, like he did everything..

I wish he were still here with his family & friends. I wish he could go to high school, & keep having so much fun with all the people he loved the most..doing what he did best, making everyone happy. I wish he could accomplish everything he ever dreamed to do. He really was something special & made this world a better place. I don’t doubt he’s doing the same thing in heaven, watching over all of you. May his sweet soul, Rest In Peace.

I didn't know Christian very well, but I remember seeing him for the first time as a little boy. He loved to show off when I video chatted with his mom.

I remeber going to raw hide with my nehpew Christian. He wanted to climb the rock wall,he was excited to show me first. Then he wanted to race me up the wall, well I tried to beat him three times but was unsuccessfull. We also sifted for gold while there it was a very fun and memorable time.

One time in science class, we had a free day and watched Rango. Chris and I were both so tired that day and he turned towards me and laid his head on my desk and fell asleep. I put my head next to his and did the same thing. I woke up when the bell rang and he was still passed out, so I woke him up and he had lines all over his head from the desk. We were both still sleepy, and I was about to leave, but he pulled me and said “So you were gonna just not give me a hug?”. We hugged and he told me to stay safe and he would see me tomorrow and I said the same. I think that was the best hug he ever gave me, and everyone knows that Christians hugs could probably cure depression. I love and miss you Chris. I hope when I see you again, I can get a hug just like the one you gave me in science class

Christian was such a great young man and when I met him I knew were were gonna become best friends but didn’t expect to see him everyday and expect to wake up to his face knocking on his ornisaacs door to see them. Christian always made me happy when he sees I’m down he would always bring me up one way or another. My brother Christian did everything with me after a while and it got to the point where I didn’t wanna do things without him being involved. Christain would always take me on family trips with him. So I would to . Christian also introduce to Isaac who I now consider a brother because I wake up to him everyday too and now and forever. You’ll forever be remembered Christian Villareal. I love you christian
