Obituary for Christoper Scofield
Christopher Patrick Earl “Chris” “Smily” Scofield, 23, of Windsor, died May 6, 2017, in Fort Collins.
He was born Feb. 8, 1994 to Jacob and Dagny Scofield in California. Chris was a 2012 Windsor High School graduate. He worked at SuperVac, Romas Pizza and All-Star Service for Weld County and RMI where he loved going to work and the people he worked with.
He is survived by his father, Jacob Scofield of Windsor, mother Dagny (Tim) Matthies of Windsor; sister Alexis Scofield of Windsor; brother Geoffrey Scofield of Windsor; grandmothers Kate Scofield of Northern Colorado, Sue Angel of Santa Fe; great-grandmother Beatrice Mason of Popular, Mont.; step-great-grandmother Sandy Bauer; and aunts, uncles and cousins from Colorado and Minnesota.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents Earl Scofield and Patrick Bauer.
The middle of three kids, he was always the first of the siblings to hit the front door on any family event. He loved family time. Chris enjoyed archery, riding ATVs, shooting guns, baseball, magic cards, music. Chris really loved going to concerts, especially old-school music such as AC/DC and KISS. He enjoyed video games, NASCAR, monster trucks, spending quality time with family and friends, food challenges, being a daredevil and comedian, watching TV, reading comic books. He was well-versed in so many topics. He loved to make people happy with his contagious smile, laugh and attitude. Chris loved to chew any kind of dip. He loved tattoos and always looked forward to the next one. Other things that Chris will be remembered for all the concerts he went to, debating until he got his point across and spending money. He lived life fulfilled and to the extreme. He was stubborn, yet extremely sensitive and loving. Should anyone need help, Chris was there. If someone said no to Chris, and he knew he was correct, he would double down on his efforts to prove his point. Debating was one of his favorite things to do. Chris loved to wear flannels and any shirt that had crazy sayings on them and the first thing he always did was cut the sleeves off. His sense of humor was fun and crazy. He could do a Rubik cube in under a minute. He could read a huge book in what seemed like record time. He was that avid of a reader. He was a fun-loving son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin; and a friend to all. He will be greatly missed, but forever in our hearts.
