Christopher (Chris) Benjamin Thevenet, Sr., 62, born August 6th, 1955 in Dallas, Texas passed away on October 3rd, 2017 at his home in Lakewood. Chris was a proud and loving father to Christopher Benjamin Thevenet, Jr. and Cameron Louise Thevenet. As a fifth generation Dallas resident, he also took pride in his city and his family history. Chris loved being outdoors. An avid outdoorsman, he spent much of his time at Caddo Lake in East Texas and passed his love for Caddo and the outdoors on to his children and countless others that knew him. He served on the board and as the president of The Dallas Caddo Hunting and Fishing Club for many years and had a heart for creating a place for people to retreat to. Thevenet worked most of his adult life in Commercial Real Estate where he proudly helped sculpt Dallas into the city it is today while creating lasting and meaningful relationships with people near and far.

Chris always made time to listen to and tell stories. He had a generous heart that served and loved many well. His warm demeanor and gentle spirit made him a joy to be around and a pleasure to laugh with. His knowledge of Caddo Lake inspired whimsy and intrigue among anyone willing to listen and learn.

Chris was preceded in death by his parents Henry and Judith Thevenet and is survived by his children Christopher Benjamin Thevenet, Jr. and Cameron Louise Thevenet. Two brothers, Michael Thevenet (wife Libbi, and sons Sam and Hank) and Scott Thevenet (wife Jan, and son Matthew), Uncle and Aunt, Ted and Peggy Thevenet, Cousins, Robert and John Thevenet and his beloved hunting dog, Caddo #2.

A celebration of life will be held at Skillman Church of Christ (3014 Skillman St, Dallas, TX 75206) on Tuesday, October 10th at 3:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in Chris’s name may be made to the Caddo Lake Institute (
