Christopher Allen Loderhose, 49, went to be with his Lord on Saturday, May 19, 2018. He was born on Thursday, August 22, 1968 in Middleton, NY to Jean Marie Morse and Peter Hones Loderhose.

Chris moved to Springfield with his family in 1982 from Walden, NY. Chris attended Central High School, was on the wrestling team and graduated in 86’. It was here in 1983 that he met a young lady by the name of Michelle Climer. Chris and Michelle dated through high school. On June 10, 1988 they were united in marriage and to this union three children were born. Chris was saved during a service at the Westport Assembly of God when he was 18. Shortly after, he enrolled at Central Bible College and graduated in 1992. Chris attended CBC four years and also worked as a Youth Pastor, Pastor and in the transportation business before becoming a Paramedic.

Being a paramedic was his true calling. Chris loved helping others, from Pastoring, to transportation, from transportation to EMS, his desire was to show others Christ. Chris worked for CMH as a paramedic and as the Cedar County Manager from 2011 to 2014. He worked the last four years at Cox Health, saving lives while fighting for his own.

Chris “Poppy” loved his children and grandchildren. He had the opportunity to visit his grandchildren in Beaufort, SC and later in Okinawa, Japan while Cavin served in the U.S. Marines. Chris passed from colorectal cancer and was a strong advocate for early screening.

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.”
