Chris was born on August 24, 1976, to Tom and Cathy Aduddell in Hobbs, New Mexico. He and his family lived in Hobbs until June 1990 when his dad transferred with Conoco to Midland, Texas. Chris was a great student and participated in youth soccer, baseball, Boys Club football, basketball, and band. In Hobbs, he was one of the “Little Dribblers” mascots one season for the Hobbs Eagles basketball team. Chris and his family were members of Taylor Street Church of Christ, and it was there that Chris accepted Christ and was baptized. In Midland, Chris and his family were members of Golf Course Road Church of Christ, and he was active in the youth group. Chris graduated from Midland Lee High School where he was a member of the band drumline and marched in the 1994 Rose Bowl parade. After high school, Chris attended Lubbock Christian University where he earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. While at LCU, Chris was a member of Alpha Chi Delta and sang with the Meistersinger Chorus and Best Friends.
It was through the LCU connection that he met the love of his life, Jamie Gage. Jamie came to a summer camp with a youth group from Henderson, Texas. Jamie later moved to Lubbock to get her Master’s degree and dated Chris while she finished it. Jamie and Chris were engaged and later married on November 14, 2009, at Sunset Church of Christ. Jamie works for LISD as a Dyslexia Therapist, and Chris worked for General Steel as a field sales representative. They are members of Broadway Church of Christ, and Chris sang with the worship praise team.
Chris was married to Jamie for twelve years and adored her. He loved his parents, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, and was lovingly called “Uncle Fish”. His blue eyes and sweet smile were contagious, and his personality would light up the room. Some of Chris’s favorite things were playing softball, working security, OU football, his annual guy’s trips, and spending time with the people he loved. Chris loved God, and his servant’s heart touched all he came in contact with. He will be missed by his family and friends, but his legacy of compassion and service will live on for generations.

The family would like to express their gratitude to all relatives and friends for the many prayers, food, and notes of encouragement. They also express their gratitude to the doctors and nurses at UMC who provided many hours of care to Chris during his battle with Covid and pneumonia. We all wanted complete healing and more life for Chris here with us, but our Heavenly Father, who is the great physician, called him home to be with Him.
