Chris possessed a very creative imagination from a very young age and carried this into his love of all things gaming in his adult life. He enjoyed writing and telling stories. He spent some time developing pod casts and also was working on a collaboration to complete a sort of comic book (not the funny kind). Chris loved ComiCon and was involved each year until his health prevented him from doing so. He was also involved with Cindy and her family doing computer repair. Perhaps one of the things he was most proud of was that he and his gaming cohorts provided some x-boxes/controllers to the VA Hospital in Dallas.
He loved music and loved playing the guitar while his brother, Jon, played harmonica. They were very good at dressing up and imitating the Blues Brothers, as was evident when they performed Happy Birthday for a friend.
Chris is survived by: Long time partner, Cindy Larey; Father Jack Sheffield, Stepmother Debbie Sheffield; Sons Dylan Sheffield (Kendall) and Justin (Haley) and granddaughter, Hadley Ann Sheffield, Kristi Sheffield, mother of his children as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
He was predeceased by his mother, Dana Sheffield and brother, Jon Sheffield.
