Christopher Edward Osborn

Christopher Edward Osborn passed away at his home in Camp Branch, on June 14.  Born June 25, 1982, he was a Southminster Day School, Oak Mountain Middle, and Indian Springs alum.  He loved being involved in city league and school sports including football and basketball, but his favorite was soccer.  He took classes at Jeff State and had careers in the home audio, insurance and restaurant businesses.  Christopher was always down for adventure and willing to try anything once.  His bold and daring spirit, along with his wit, charm, and personality were his strongest assets, ensuring that he made friends with everyone he met.  For the past four years he was lucky to have the devoted companionship of his love, Natalie Hatch, with plans to be married, before his time with us was cut short.  Chris will always be loved and remembered for the funny, fun loving guy that he was and will be dearly missed by his family, including his parents Tammy Nabors & Michael Osborn, both of Birmingham; his sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephews, Maegan, Drew, Abi, Kenneth and Andrew Rice of Birmingham; his grandmothers Carol Fogle of Fairhope and Mildred Osborn of Birmingham; his uncles Mike Fogle and Ed Fogle, and his favorite aunt Yonna Fogle, all of Fairhope.  His cousins, Melody Sanchez of Calera; Amy Alford & Kirk, Alex Fogle & Elizabeth, Zoie Ulmer & Cam, Anna Ellis & Ryan, Madison Fogle, and Zach Fogle, will cherish Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, beach, Disney and snow skiing holiday memories.  Christopher was preceded in death by his brother, Dustin Osborn, both grandfathers, Freddie Richard Fogle and Edward Osborn, and an uncle, Mark Fogle. 

A Celebration of Christopher’s life will be held Saturday, July 22 at 2:00 p.m. at Camp Branch United Methodist Church.  Please consider making a donation in Chris’ memory to Turning Point Foundation by texting TPGIVING to 73256 or on their website at, or to Indian Springs School by going to for details.
