Christopher Michael Proffitt

October 2, 1976 - January 7, 2021

Christopher Michael Proffitt, born October 2, 1976, earned his wings on January 7, 2021. A lifelong Portland, Ohio resident, Chris graduated from Racine Southern High School where he had many friends, classmates, and teammates as a basketball and football player. He was a member of the Carpenters Union Local 650.

Chris loved listening to his music loud and driving fast. He always had a passion for his mustangs. He enjoyed backroading and 4-wheeling and a good gamble. He would wager on himself, his friends, and anything he believed in. Chris would never turn his back on a friend in need. He could comfort you from far away as well as he could when he was beside you.

Chris flew home to his mother, Pamela Sue Ballard and his paternal grandfather, James Proffitt.

Those left to cherish him are his father, Terry (Brenda) Proffitt, stepfather Mickey Ballard, paternal grandmother Catherine McGraw, maternal grandparents Howard “Hoppy” and Donna Larkins, grandmother Margie Warner, brother Jamison “Jamie“ Proffitt, sister Brianne (Todd) Perry, stepbrothers Chase and Logan Ballard, nieces Jaden and Jillian Proffitt, Josie Perry, his paternal uncle Monty Proffitt, paternal aunt Patricia Proffitt, maternal uncle Brent Larkins, maternal aunt Cheryl (Neil Stewart) Baylor and much loved girlfriend of many years, Randi Stalnaker. He also leaves behind many family members and friends that will forever cherish his memory.
