In memory of Christopher Brookfield
June 12, 1936-June 15, 2018
We have lost a friend
Christopher joined the Jeffersonland Chorus in 2014, faithfully attending rehearsals and participating in our many sing-outs and performances. He had a deep, resonant voice and loved to sing. He recalled stories of his Army days coordinating paratroopers. While Chris said part of his job was to dress down the newest recruits like the classic drill Sergeant, we had trouble imagining him in that role because the man we knew was quiet and unassuming. So much so that, when asked to help sell show tickets, he did not feel comfortable "selling", so instead he gave a generous contribution to the Chorus to support our activities.
We will miss Chris's presence and the music he helped us make. Our condolences to his family and other friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that those wishing to honor Chris consider a contribution to support one of his favorite activities. If you wish, please click Donate to support the JLC.
