Christopher Lee Fromant, 65, left this world in Woodstock, GA to join his Savior on June 6, 2017. He began his earthly journey on July 26, 1951, in Clarkston, Georgia with his parents Richard and Kathryn Fromant and older brother Ricky who have preceded him in death. He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Gloria C. Fromant of Woodstock, GA; his adoring children and their spouses, Marcus Shoemaker, Angela and Todd Sanchez, Jason and Amy Fromant, Desireé and Wyatt Smith; his four fabulous grandchildren, Travis, Charles, Hailey, Aislyn; his caring sister, MaryKay Adamson; and his devoted (too smart for their own good) dogs Sadie and Gracie. He graduated from Briarcliff High School, cruising the streets around Atlanta in his Ford Torino muscle car in 1969. He continued his education at DeKalb Technical College earning a degree in Instrumentation Technology. In 1973 he graduated from DeKalb Community College with an Associate's Degree in Instrumentation Technology. After graduation he worked for the General Electric Company as a Service Technician, Outside Sale Engineer, and Operations Manager. Over the years he also worked for the Siemens Corporation, GE Capital, Electro Rent Corporation, and First Data. It was not until he left the corporate world in 2008 that he found his true calling as a Cherokee County School Bus Driver. He also helped his wife operate an in home child care center. Working and caring for children gave him the opportunity to let his spirited nature escape with corny "dad" jokes and playful teasing. He met his wife Gloria at a New Year's Eve party (she had him with the line, "You look like Superman!") and they were later married in Mexico on April 29, 1982. He was a faithful husband and provider for his family. A man of many skills, and master of some, he built his own log home where he lived for 32 years. He enjoyed various carpentry adventures, gardening (better known as feeding the deer), camping, fishing, and traveling. His passion was hunting, which included tons of food, playing poker with the boys, and sleeping in the deer stand after staying up too late. He was a spiritual man who helped others through missionary trips, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, donating to his church's food pantry, and helping bake approximately 2000 brownies each summer for a Summer Lunch Program (that's a lot of eggs to crack). From 1998-2001 he was seen every Friday night during football season pulling the Sequoyah High School band trailer in his blue 1977 Ford F150. A Celebration of Life Ceremony will be held at Ray Thomas Memorial Presbyterian Church on June 10, 2017 at 1 PM. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to your local animal shelter in honor of Chris' love for his champion Austrian Shepherds, or to Ray Thomas Memorial's food pantry.
