Christopher Leon Studwell

Some things are just to hard to bear, but somehow we do.

Chris was born in Stamford, CT. He was the first child of six; born to very active parents; Snookie and Don. As a child he participated in sports, had a paper route, and led neighbors in sports in the cul-de-sac in front of his Lewellyn Rd. home whenever he could. He went to Stamford Catholic HS and made many life-long friends there easily. He joined the Air Force in 1971 and was stationed at Luke AFB where he discovered volleyball and met Bobbie Orcutt who he married in August 1972. They moved to Moscow Idaho so that Chris could pursue a degree in Wildlife Resources. He was injured in a motorcycle accident in Idaho in 1978, but finished his degree in 1980. The apple of his eye, Stephanie, was born in August 1984. In 1989, Chris became an avid wheelchair tennis player.
