Born in Alliance, Ohio, Chris was the 2nd of 5 sons born to Thomas D. McFeely (deceased) and Camellia (Russell) Natale (deceased). After graduating from Alliance High School, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps and proudly served for 4 years. Chris attended The Boyd School of Travel and Business Careers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and worked at United Airlines as a travel agent in Northern Virginia prior to moving to San Diego, California. Chris was employed as a loan officer with WJ Bradley Mortgage Capital Corporation, a Financial Specialist at Paramount Equity Mortgage, and, at the time of his death, was a Senior Loan Officer with iDirect Home Loans.
Chris was a loving and adoring father who spoke frequently of how proud he was of his daughter, Daniella. Chris was loyal to all who were blessed to call him their friend and he cherished those relationships. He had a very special bond with his brothers. When they would get together, they would spend hours reminiscing and sharing stories of their years growing up together – so many cherished memories. An avid sports fan, he enjoyed football the most and eagerly awaited the start of the season every year. He was a major fan of all Cleveland sports teams and, of course, loved The Ohio State Buckeyes. Chris was also a bit of a celebrity as he played baseball with Reese Body Shop at the age of 14 - and they won the F League State Championship. Chris enjoyed life and, with his great sense of humor, he brought laughter into all of the lives that he touched. Chris adored his nieces and nephews, and he always kept in touch by phone or Facebook. Family was very important to him.
