Christopher Gerald Land was born in Dallas, Texas on June 16,1983 to Jerry and Kathy Land. He had three half-brothers Greg, Mike, and Beau and one baby sister, Charé. He also had one niece and nephew, Ethan and Olivia Rankin. Chris had a wonderful childhood and spent much of his time with his mom and sister often going on road trips and adventures and enjoying life. His mom really loved life, and was very free-spirited and he adopted a lot of that. He was raised in Prestonwood Baptist church and they also spent a lot of time there. He was baptised at an early age. He was a great student and always took his studies very seriously. He excelled through school and graduated Jesuit Preparatory school with honors. He later went on to study at University of Arlington.

Chris was the light of many peoples lives and really knew how to live. If Chris was in a room there was never a dull moment. He could make you belly laugh until you couldn't breathe. He could also make you think, he would have long talks with many about life and other things. He never met a stranger and everyone loved him. He was intelligent, sweet, kind, humble, and really just had the best soul. He loved his family with all of his heart. He was a great Uncle and had a special bond with his niece and nephew. He was the best brother, son, Uncle and friend.

As one of his friends said, "His life on earth was cut short, but it was full." Although he will be greatly missed by those fortunate enough to know him, he was greeted in heaven by his mom who passed earlier this year and we know they were happy to see one another. They are both with their Lord watching over us with the angels.
