Chris Coleson was born in Portsmouth, VA, in 1965 to James and Martha Coleson. He and his three younger sisters, Michelle, Caroline, and Christina, grew up traveling around Europe and the United States as “military brats.” As a young man, Chris enjoyed surfing and playing soccer.
In the latter part of his life, Chris shared his “youthful” passion with his two children, Meghan and James, and his wife Tricia. When Chris wasn’t working at the family business, he was involved with his kid’s sports teams, disabled veterans’ charity events, or animal rescue through the New Kent County animal support groups.
Chris passed away March 2015.
