Christopher S. “Chris” Skinner, passed away on Monday, September 6, 2021. Born November 14, 1979 in Manassas, VA, son of Wayne L. Skinner and Jeanne (Wells) Hinson.

You never forget the moment that you met Chris Skinner.  Chris was a man who loved Jesus, loved his family, loved his friends, and loved life.  After being paralyzed at age 20, he passionately pursued sharing his story of tragedy to triumph with everyone he met.  Although he has spoken to over 1 million people, he believed his greatest purpose was to be a loving Daddy and husband.   

Chris is survived by his wife, Suzanne J. Skinner; son, Caleb Skinner; daughter, Alethia Skinner; father, Wayne L Skinner; mother and step-father, Michael and Jeanne Hinson; step brother and sister-in-law, Jonathan and Amy Hinson; mother and father-in-law, Ed and Judi Jefferis; sister and brother-in-law, Shawn and Tamra McDermott; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Jim and Allyson Jefferis; nephews, Blake Lanham, Andrew Hinson, and Brody Davis; and nieces, Natalie Hinson, Katherine Jefferis, Sarah Jefferis, and Anna Jefferis.

A Memorial Service to celebrate Chris’s life will be held at 3:00 PM Sunday, September 12 at Solid Rock at Market Common, 803 Howard Ave., Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.
