Christopher Michael Richards was born October 23, 1982 in Lawton, Oklahoma to Michael and Lu (Glasgow) Richards. Chris grew up in Roswell, NM and then later moved back to Lawton, OK. In 2006 he met the love of his life and they married in 2009. He loved life and spent his time trying to live it to the fullest. His family, children, and friends meant the world to him and he would do whatever was necessary to take care of them. Chris never knew a stranger. If you met Chris, you were instantly friends. He obtained his Bachelors of Science in Accounting in 2015. He was a thriving member of the Outsiders Motorcycle Club, Stephens County Chapter, where he met guys that he referred to as extended family. He loved going on motorcycle runs with the guys. He was very passionate about music, playing the guitar, and motorcycles. He was a great husband, loving father, and a hard worker. There are just not enough words to describe the man that he was.
