Chris Abeyta

Chris Abeyta, of Safford, entered into eternal rest Tuesday, March 22, 2022, at the Mount Graham Regional Medical Center. He was 59.

Chris was an avid pool player, enjoyed visiting with his friends and family, and listening to music. His favorite TV show was "Gunsmoke". He loved to talk about his children and how proud he was of them. Chris enjoyed being with his friends and loved to tell people what such good friends he had. He often spoke of events he enjoyed and would repeat them over and over. 

Chris is survived by: his children, Dillon Abeyta, Ryder Abeyta, Heather Miller, Rozlyn Abeyta, and Alex; his siblings, Mark Abeyta, Mike Abeyta, and John Archuleta; and his step-father, Esiquio Lozano. 

Chis was preceded in death by: his mother, Mercedes; his sister, Betty Gene; his brother, Tommy; and his grandparents, Chriscenseo and Mary Bravo.

Chris and I along with his brothers lived at St Joseph's Children's home in Casper Wyoming. Chris was the oldest and took pride in his little brothers. Chris was a stand up guy and his loyalty, and integrity were amongst his best qualities. Looking back on the years I spent in Wyoming as a young man I think the best times in life we're the days we spent lifting weights playing records and snow skiing in Casper Wyoming. Chris and his big smile is what I remember. I will miss our phone conversations, we will meet again, so long my friend.
