Christopher Paul Argerich was born on January 23, 1979 in Monterey Park. First-born to parents, Claudio and Sylvia Argerich, Chris became the apple of his parent's and grandparent's eyes. He was looked up to by his siblings, Erika and Anthony, as well as his godson, Evan. As a child, Chris loved to play baseball, dance, sing, and just be silly. He loved Superman and would beg his mom to dress and comb him like Superman during his childhood years. He attended Murrieta High School and graduated from el rancho high school in 1997. Throughout his high school years, Chris continued to play baseball, was involved in track, enjoyed many other sports, and was a member of the el rancho high school choraleers. he was very poplar and was well known for his cheerful and eccentric character. he loved to make people laugh and would often perform magic tricks just to bring a smile to the faces of young children and adults. after graduating high school, Chris attended cat state Fullerton. He graduated from the Rio Hondo police academy in 2008 and dreamed of becoming a law enforcement officer. he continued his education in criminal justice at Cal State Los Angeles, worked, and provided full-time care for his elderly grandparents, Yaya and Abuelo.

Some of Chris' personal interest were baseball, football, soccer, athletic training, science, books, and most of all Superman. Even as an adult, Chris would sometimes dress himself up in hi Superman gear, spread his arms out in front of him, and pretend he was flying through the room. one of his favorite treats was the 7-Eleven Slurpee. He was thoughtful, caring, and always willing to help someone in need; a true example of the meaning "friend." He made friends everywhere; either at the supermarket or down the block everyone knew him. Chris also enjoyed traveling and visited places such as china, Italy, France, and Spain during his college years. Chris met Melissa Serrato in November 2003 and they dated for a short period of time. After reconnecting in 2008, Chris and Melissa grew more in love and welcomed their baby girl, Kaylee Ave Argerich to the world in February 2011. The moment that Kaylee was born Chris felt he had been blessed with an angel. he cared for kaylee from morning 'till night and always told her how much he loved her. he sang lullabies to her and gave her tiny kisses along her cheek as she fell asleep in his arms. in his last few weeks, he was often seen dancing around the room with Kaylee, making her laugh, and just being the lovable and sill chris that everyone knew.
