Christopher Bremer was a loving son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin, friend and soulmate.
Christopher loved being around family and was always lending a hand to any of us that needed it. His quiet nature drew everyone closer to him. Through his struggles he kept his smile and didn’t want anyone to know how deep he was hurting. In the end, these struggles led him to take his life in 2020.
He always made everyone feel “loved” and so we will continue his legacy of love to help others connect to what they are missing or needing in their life through removing barriers, advocating connectedness, and encouraging others to "Be A Link." Through the Christopher Bremer Memorial Foundation we intend to be the link of resources for mental health and suicide prevention.
With your help we can make a difference for those that need it most.
