He grew up in the small town of Florence surrounded by many childhood friends. He graduated from Florence High School in 1987 where he enjoyed playing basketball. He then learned the carpentry trade and worked in many places including the Seattle area, helping to build a beautiful Catholic church, a day surgery hospital for children funded by Bill Cosby and the Northwest Boy and Girl Scout headquarters.
Chris married Kristina Greef and they had two children, Austin Parry and Alexa Diane. They were later divorced.
He loved the mountains, hunting and fishing and most of all, NHRA, at one time owning and racing a dragster at Seattle International Raceway. Chris was an organ donor and we know many people benefited from this.
Surviving are his children in Florida and his fiancee, Stephanie Bugli, his parents, Bev and Vic Ralls and his brother Rob and wife Jodi and their children Ryan and Chelsea. Also surviving is his maternal grandmother Betty Weigand Wouri, uncle Mike and Mary Ralls and their families, aunt Susie and Steve Hambrick and their families, aunt Debbie and Scott Miller and their families, a special great uncle and
aunt Jim and Gerri Bird of Orofino, Idaho and a cousin Jerry Gillingham, his wife Pam and son Hunter of Henderson, NV. Also surviving is his best companion and dog, Prince Albert.
A memorial service will be held in late spring. We will miss you, Chris, and loved you.
