Christopher Allan Brantley, 39, died Jan. 3 at Parkland Memorial Hospitals of complications from a stroke.
A native of Flint, Mich., Brantley had lived in the Dallas area for the past six years. He graduated from Flint High School and served six years in the U.S. Army, including in Desert Storm. After his discharge from the military, he managed a drug store and later a coffee shop, but was not working at the time of his death due to illness.
Brantley had a true love for sports and music and loved to talk about both subjects. He will be truly missed by all that knew him.
He is survived by his mother, Carla Hunt Watters of Indianapolis, and by his friends, Thomas Kryzer and Alberto Luna, both of Dallas.
A memorial service was held earlier at the home of his friends, Kryzer and Luna, in Dallas.
