The beloved son of Lee and Martha Beazley of Cave Creek, brother of Allisa and April; devoted husband of Krista (George); and adored father of Casey (10), Kohl (7) and Kiana (3).

Chris graduated from Barry Goldwater High School in 1995; then earned a degree in wildlife biology from Northern Arizona University where he met his future wife and friend for life, Krista. The two were currently working for the White Mountain and San Carlos Apache Tribes as biologists.

As a youth, Chris interned for the Adobe Mountain Wildlife Refuge. Later, he served with Flagstaff Search and Rescue, Big Horn Sheep Society, the White Mountain Four-H youth program, and the W.M.U.S.D.

As an example to his children, Chris showed his deep respect for Apache traditions by learning beading, moccasin making, leatherwork, bow and arrow construction, and taxidermy.

Chris will always be remembered for his good heart, kind words, and bright smile. Above everything, amid all life’s trials, Christopher’s faith in Jesus Christ carried him through. Services were held at the First Baptist Church in Pinetop.
