Christopher Ryan Reno

Christopher Reno Christopher Ryan Reno was born in Dallas Texas on May 14, 1986, just 12 months and 2 ½ hours after his older brother. Chris was taken from us in a tragic car accident at the young age of 23 on January 29, 2010. The family moved to West Richland when he was six months old and he has lived here ever since.

Although Chris made friends wherever he went, his best friends were people he knew since middle school and high school. He was a very loyal friend and always had their back. He loved his 1999 corvette and his motorcycle, which he recently rode to North Carolina to visit a friend. He loved to play paintball and set up an area on the family farm that he and his friends would play at for hours.

Chris loved his family, and even recently drove down and visited many of them in California. He was the best big brother in the world: doting, loving, and loved. He always had time to watch Disney with Hannah, teach new karate moves to Cheyenne, work on his car and motorcycle with Dad, and to look over various magazines while having in-depth conversations about anything and everything with Misty. He was greatly loved by his family and the entire Ft. Hunter Liggett community.

Chris was really excited to start in the welding program at Columbia Basin College this spring. He had worked for Connors Drilling traveling to Alaska, New Mexico, and Nevada. He really liked the job and made new friends everywhere he went. He recently worked the outage at Energy Northwest and this past summer at C&M Nursery.

Chris is survived by his mother Lori Randy Walli; brothers Jason Reno and Andrew Walli; grandparents Perry and Mary Gruver, all of West Richland; aunts Denise Sitter of Richland, Kathy Rick Walli of Kennewick, Janice Carolyn Walli of California; cousins Joshua Alia Sitter of Whidbey Island, Shawn Walli, Areiel Affan Karaca of West Richland, Arin Adam Winsor of Seattle, Stephanie Winsor of Finley, and Ari Walli of California.

He is also survived by his dad Craig Debi Reno; sisters Misty, Cheyenne, and Hannah of Ft. Hunter Liggett, California, and Grandmother Gladys Reno of Garland, Texas. He is survived by numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents Ross Reno, Reidar and Marion Walli; uncle and aunt Reidar and Letty Walli.

Visitation will be held at Einan's Funeral Home on Thursday February 4, 2010 from 4 pm to 8 pm. A celebration of Chris's life will take place at Central United Protestant Church Friday February 5, 2010 at 11 am.

An account has been opened at GESA Credit Union in Chris's name to help with funeral expenses. Donations can also be made to the Benton Franklin Humane Society, 8620 W. Gage Blvd., Kennewick, WA 99336.

  • Chris you are such a blessing to the world. I remember playing hide and seek in my tiny apartment, in the dark and I laugh so hard when I think about those days. I miss you so much. It seems unfair that such a wonderful person be taken from this world. Till we all meet again.

  • My family lives next door to the Walli’s and would see Chris from time to time. He was easy going and had a special way with kids. My 6 year old son liked to watch Chris drive off on his “super cool motorcycle.” Chris was an awesome big brother! Our thoughts are with your family.

  • In my darkest of times, you were there for me. You would listen to all my secrets, and you were loyal. It seems wrong…that such a good person, and family memeber, and friend…gets taken from us all.

    Chris, none of us will ever forget you. Everyone you’ve ever met will keep you in their hearts and thoughts. Your family and friends will always love you and miss you.

    yours always, BRi

  • Chris was growing up to be a fine young man who will be greatly missed by all of us.

    It always saddens us to loose those we love. This is made even more tragic when they are taken away from us so young in life.

    The old adage of “never drive faster than your angels can fly” will never apply to you my friend, because you have become one of angels who will look down and take care of the rest of us in our journey through this life.

    Gods speed Chris, Gods speed.

  • Chris, you were one of my Grandson Justin Eskimo friends as well as a good friend of our family.

    My Grandson has been gone now for 3-years, but in that time you and other friends of my Grandson would stop by the house to see how we were doing.

    You would always take time to play with Justin’s little sister, Talia.

    Everytime you came, you had hugs for Grandma and me as well as when you left.

    Chris, you had a good heart and you will be dearly missed.

    To Chris’s family and friends: We were priveleged to have known such a fine, young man and his absence will be felt for a long time, but when I think of Chris, I will think of the good man he was becoming and the times we have shared and the lives he has touched.

    For such a young man, Chris has left boot prints which will be difficult for someone to fill.

    I feel that Justin is still looking in on us on occassion and now Chris will be as well.

    Until we can all be together again.
