Christian Peter Long was born December 2, 1976 in Alberta, Canada to Jim and Shirley Long. Chris lived in Canada and attended school, there, until he moved with his family to Waterville, WA in September, 1988 where his dad taught music. Chris graduated from Waterville High School in 1994 and then attended Wenatchee Valley College for two years before transferring to Washington State University. He graduated from WSU with his Doctorate in Pharmacy. Following graduation, he moved to Bellingham and worked as a pharmacist. He later worked in manufacturing, until his passing.
In September, 2003 he married Tegan Peterson and they were married for 14 years. Chris was involved in raising his step daughter, Chanel, and enjoyed attending her sporting and educational events. Chris was a hockey enthusiast. Our "No.1" started playing as a young boy in Canada, then for the Wenatchee Blades and also later for WSU. We will miss his "wicked" sense of humor, his remarkable intelligence and knack for being late! After a struggle with depression and other health issues, he passed away in Bellingham, WA.
Chris was predeceased by his father, in September 1992 as well as grandparents and his beloved Corgi, Bean Long. Chris will be sadly missed by his step daughter, Chanel Peterson; mother, Shirley Long; sister, Cory Milbrandt; brother, Brad Fehr and nephews, Jackson Milbrandt; Riel and Keenan Fehr. He also will be missed by numerous aunts and uncles and cousins and a host of friends.
A memorial service will be held September 20th at 11:00 am at the United Lutheran Church in Waterville, WA. Donations may be made in his memory to the National Alliance on Mental Illness or charity of choice.
