Obituary of Christopher Abrant

Christopher Thomas Blaise Abrant

Age 27, of Marseilles, IL, and formerly Joliet, IL, died suddenly Friday, September 21, 2018.  He was born July 25, 1991, in Chicago, having been raised on the South Side before moving to Joliet in 2003.  He attended Joliet West High School until he relocated to Marseilles and graduated with the Class of 2010 from Ottawa High School.

Chris is the proud and devoted father of Cali Jane Abrant; beloved son of Thomas and Lynn (nee Krauledis) Abrant of Marseilles, IL; and fond nephew of several aunts and uncles, including is aunt Leslie Krauledis.  He is also survived by his cousins and countless friends.

Crispy will be remembered fondly as a talented guitarist and musician who was a member of the former local band, “Chicago with a Heartache”, and several other bands through the years.  He loved music, was a fan of the Ramones, the Blackhawks and White Sox.  He also enjoyed fishing, yet nothing in this world could compare with the happiness and contentment his daughter Cali Jane bestowed upon him.

Visitation for Chris will be held Wednesday, September 26, 2018, from 3:00-8:00 p.m. at the Fred C. Dames Funeral Home, 3200 Black at Essington Rds., Joliet.  Funeral services will be held Thursday, September 27, 2018, at 10: 15 a.m. from the funeral home chapel to Holy Family Catholic Church, 600 Brook Forest Ave. (Rt. 59), Shorewood, IL, where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m.  As it was Chris’s request, cremation rites will be accorded following Mass.  In lieu of flowers, memorials in his name can be made to Cali’s education fund or visit his Treasured Memories Funding page to help..  For more information, please call (815) 741-5500 or visit his Memorial Tribute at
