After retiring from service, Chris moved himself and his family back to the area, where he worked as a carpenter up until his death. Christopher was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Dan and Ruth Whetstone; his paternal grandparents, Toby and Francis Whitfield; and his father, Michael L. Whitfield. Family members describe Chris as hard-working, loving, and family-oriented. His children have expressed that they knew their father loved them unconditionally, and that all he ever wanted to do was be there for them.

Hoping to carry on the love and life that Christopher inspired in them, he is survived by his children, Michael and Ashli Whitfield; his grandchildren, Brody, Isabella, Carter, Kora, and Kai; his siblings, Aimee Bullock, Misty Whitfield, and Shannon Whitfield; his mother, Dana Walden; and his stepmother, Vicky Whitfield.
