Christopher Lee Caswell, age 42, passed away peacefully in Abilene, Texas on July 28, 2022, surrounded by family. Chris was born on June 15, 1980, in Colorado City, TX and grew up in Midland, TX. There was never a dull moment when Chris was around. He was the life of the party and there was hardly a moment when he wasn’t cracking a joke. He was a genius at mechanics. His hard work ethic earned him a lot of respect and notoriety throughout his career in the oilfield. Under his direction, his crew received an honor that was displayed at the Petroleum Museum for the fastest well drilled using only ONE bit! When Chris was not working, he enjoyed riding motorcycles, watersports on the lake and he had music playing everywhere that he went. Above everything else, he loved spending time with his family and having fun with his children. Not a day will go by where his fun-loving nature is not deeply missed. He is proceeded in death by his Mother, Lorrie Baker, Grandmother, Elsie Barton, & Grandfather, Albert Barton. He is survived by his Father, Cletus Floyd Caswell; Brothers, John Caswell and Randi Caswell & Wesley Braggs; Sisters, DustyLynn Caswell, Denise Lutjens, Krystal Shackleford & Misty Gibbs; Children, Kristen Caswell, Charlea Chamberlain-Caswell, Melissa Caswell, Aiden Caswell & Gracelyn Caswell; Aunt Gail Applin & Uncle Alvin Applin; Cousins, Cody Applin & Robert Easterly; Grandchildren, Olivia Wright, Oliver Caswell & Oleandra Caswell, a niece, several nephews, best friend & love, Angie Caswell.
