Christopher Steven Chandler

     Christopher Steven Chandler, age 40, of Avondale, Pennsylvania, passed away on October 19, 2023 at Christiana Hospital in Newark, DE with his family by his side.  He was the spouse of Laura Chandler, with whom he shared 13 years of marriage, and father to his two beloved twin daughters, Kylie and Madelyn. He is survived by his wife, Laura; twin daughters Kylie and Madelyn; father Michael Chandler; mother Dolores Chandler; brothers Scott Chandler and Brian Chandler (Christina); sister Heather Kelly (Kevin); along with numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. He will be tremendously missed.

 

     Born in West Chester, PA on April 28, 1983 to Michael S. Chandler and Dolores Regester Chandler, Chris spent his childhood surrounded by the things that he loved as an adult: playing the drums, watching and playing sports, fishing, along with spending time with friends and family.  He graduated from Kennett High School in 2002, where he was a leading member of the 2002 State Basketball Championship team. After, he started his apprenticeship with Local 74/Plumbers and Pipe-Fitters in September of 2005 and completed the 5-year program in June 2010.  Affectionately known as “Woogie” (from Something About Mary) to his Union brothers, he worked as a journeyman Pipe-Fitter in Delaware since his graduation. Chris’ friends and family had numerous other nicknames, such that he rarely went by just “Chris.”  Some included, “Chandler,” “The Chandler Boy,” “Chee,” “Chicken,” and “Gig,” presumably among countless others.

 

     More than anything, Chris loved spending time with his family and this was his favorite place to be. You could see his generosity of spirit through his cooking. For holidays, his specialties were the Thanksgiving turkey, apple pie, brie, and any coordinating appetizer. Any holiday was a reason to celebrate. He held a special place in his heart such as carving pumpkins in the fall, hanging decorations for each holiday, taking the girls shopping for Christmas, Easter Egg hunts, and so many more. Just as importantly, he found ways to give back to the community. One of his most important titles was being “Coach Daddy” for the girls in t-ball. During the summers, Chris loved spending time at the beach collecting shells, building sandcastles, and teaching Kylie & Maddy the best fishing techniques. He was the most loving father, husband, son, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend.
