Location: Greenville
January 26, 2014 - Christopher Iain Robson, son of Iain and Lilly Robiso Robson, he was born November 18, 1988 in Great Falls, Montana.

Chris grew up a very happy boy who loved playing with his childhood friends, never showing prejudice to anybody and standing up for those who were underprivileged.

His first job was at Frankie?s Fun Park, he then moved to Sticky Fingers downtown Greenville and later to The Lazy Goat as server and bar back. He loved snowboarding in the hills of Montana, playing soccer in the MESA/CESA Recreation Department where he had several famous plays as striker and goal keeper. Traveling, camping, fishing, and paddle boarding were amongst some of his other favorite activities.

He always had a knack for bringing out his artistic side by creating intricate clay figurines, later bringing to light a strong sense of fashion and an admiration for architectural structures both old and new. He started his own business ?Topher?s Photography? gaining his first contract with Furman University.

His sudden passing on January 26, 2014 brought his young life to a tragic end for our material world. God has allowed us to enjoy his presence for the past 25 glorious years and we pray and thank God for those precious times we all were able to share with him.

We will all miss his laughter and the bright energy he brought into our lives. Chris, we love you and thank you for everything. You are a precious son and we are very proud of you!
