Robert “Chris” Kannady, 59, suddenly departed this world for Heaven on May 18, 2018 while vacationing with his family in Florida. Hours before he was planning to walk his oldest daughter down the beach in marriage, God brought him home. In the midst of our grief, we received the phone call asking us to honor his request to be an organ donor. Since Chris had spent the majority of his life giving to others, it wasn’t surprising that he would want to continue the legacy of giving through his death.
He loved to spend time with his wife of 25 years, three daughters, son-in-laws and he especially loved being a grandpa.
Chris was born in Springfield, Illinois and moved to the St. Louis area while attending St. Louis University – Parks College. He loved the Lord and quickly became active with several ministries and churches. Chris spent a great deal of his life being a servant and would always look for opportunities to help others.
He loved the outdoors; camping, hiking and cycling being his favorite. His presence in the lives of his family is greatly missed, but the memories of time spent with him in the great outdoors will live on in our hearts.
We miss you Chris and look forward to hearing about the lives saved by your generous gift to others.
