As a teenager, Chris found his passion for automobiles and started his longtime career as an automobile mechanic. Chris was so talented, could fix anything, and owned and operated Chris Graves Auto Repair for many years. When not working, he could be found fishing as he loved being outdoors. He also enjoyed watching FSU football and Nascar racing. In 2003, Chris met the love of his life, Rebecca Lee Crews, and they were happily married on April 8, 2006. More than anything, Chris was a family man, devoted to his wife and children, and loved spending time with them. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Henry O.
