On October 15, 1982, a baby boy was born to Floretta Williams and Louis Victor Sanford of whom they named Christopher Glen Williams; affectionately known as “Kissa”.
At a young age Christopher accepted Christ as the leader of his life and was a baptized Member of the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church. He later joined Faith Temple Outreach Ministry. Christopher attended Bay City High School and was a proud member of the 2000 Championship football team; he graduated in 2001. He went on to join the United States Army and was stationed in Fort Knox, Kentucky. After serving his country, he began working as a contractor at Dow Chemical and Formosa Plants, he was employed by Apache Industries.
Christopher was a hard working young man that loved to see others happy and having fun. No matter who you were, he welcomed you with an open heart and always told a joke so he could make you smile. Christopher enjoyed hunting and fishing with his uncles, but most of all eating. On any given day you could catch him running dogs or with the fishing poles on the back of the truck. That is of course, if the Houston Texans were not playing. Between hunting, fishing, watching football, and family time, he kept himself busy entertaining those that he met throughout the course of a day.
