Life Story / Obituary


Age 41, died on September 28, 2020. Chris was born July 18, 1979 in Flint, the son of Michael and Pam (McCoy) Bouchard. Since he was a young boy Chris put his heart and soul into music. A gifted and talented musician, he played for the MSU Marching Band, cementing his love for the Spartan’s. He also had a knack for Christmas decorations. Each year, Chris would help his uncle carefully place thousands of lights and ornaments all over the house. So many, in fact, they drew crowds from far and wide. Friends and family were most important to Chris. A naturally giving personality, he’d do anything he could to help a friend in need and make his family feel loved. Most importantly Chris rededicated his life to the Lord. His hope, and joy, is for everyone to find the Lord and meet in Heaven.

Chris is preceded in death by his dad; sister, Baby Bouchard; and his grandparents. Surviving are his mom, Pam; siblings: Lynette (Paul) Sturak and Todd (Esta) Bouchard; and several aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday (OCT 3) at 1 PM at Rivertown Assembly of God, 3260 52nd St SW, Wyoming, MI.
