Homer resident Christopher S. Dawson, 53, died Tuesday, June 23, 2015, in Soldotna.

There was a small family wake for Chris and his ashes were spread in Kachemak Bay out of Homer.

Chris was born on Nov. 12, 1961, in Laramie, Wyo.

“Chris will be remembered by his family and friends for his generosity, his sense of humor, his love of music, and his love of the outdoors. We will all miss his kind, supportive, and non-judgmental nature,” his family said.

Chris was employed at Sadler’s in Sterling, and later at South Peninsula Hospital. He enjoyed camping, fishing, hiking, traveling, canoeing, barbecuing and listening to the blues.

Chris was preceded in death by his father, Eugene Dawson.

He is survived by his mother, Marguerite McIntire; sister, Katie Dawson; daughters, Valerie Dawson and Jessica Dawson; and his two grandchildren.
