Christopher Dale 'Chris' Minor
May 6, 1992 ~ January 10, 2015
Christopher (Chris) Minor was born in Fallbrook, CA on May 6, 1992 and went to meet our Lord on January 10, 2015. He will be forever in the memory of his parents Leland Minor and Martha Arriaga, his step-parents Tammy Minor and Fernando Arriaga, twin brother Daniel Minor, brother and Sister-in-Law Andrew and Sarah Minor, Brother Matthew Arriaga and sisters Veronica Arriaga & Terra Moore. Chris is also survived by his Great Grandmother Carmen Romero, grandparents Jesus and Francisca Cortes, Aunts Anita Minor, Cheryl Kirton, Patricia Saldana, Myrna Cortes, Uncles Bobbie Minor, Harold Minor and a large number of cousins. Chris was a happy, energetic and athletic young man. He touched the lives of many and always had a smile on his face. He loved football and was a “true blue” SD Chargers fan. Some of his fondest memories were attending Charger games with his father and brothers. He also loved soccer and played in the TVSA Soccer league for many years. He and his brother Daniel went to All-Stars a number of times and participated in the Commissioners Cup in 2005. He loved animals, especially dogs. He loved spending time with Misty, Sady…… and Niko. He attended Kid’s World preschool, Pauba Elementary, Abby Reinke Elementary and graduated 8th Grade from Temecula Preparatory School. He went on to Corona High School and graduated from Temecula Valley High School. In May 2014 he was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and through it all remained upbeat and optimistic. He met many wonderful and caring people at UCLA in Santa Monica. He had a noble, tender and loving heart and will live forever in the hearts of those who remember the joy he brought.

For a fine young man who fought a difficult battle, never complaining, always smiling. Chris was a true inspiration to me as one of his nurses @ SMUCLA medical center. He was so loved and all of our hearts are broken. We will miss him more than words can say. Rest in peace
For my son Chris. May the light and peace of God be with you always…until we meet again. Love..Mom
Gracias Señor por la espina que encontrare en el sendero, donde marcho pregonero de tu esperanza divina. Gracias por ser compañero. Descansa en Paz mi pequeño Cristobal
