Christopher Asahante Woolf

Christopher Asahante Woolf, son, brother, athlete and entertainer, died Saturday, July 11, 2020 in Wichita, Kan. at the age of 24. 

Chris was adopted on Nov. 20, 2010 by Steve and Kellie Woolf and quickly became the grinning, playful and charming center of the house. 

Chris was an engaging and social young man. He loved asking questions, making people laugh and championing any cause that landed at his feet. He was spontaneous and brave, kind and empathetic. 

Chris attended Quivira Heights High School, Central Plains High School, and graduated from Erie High School in 2014. He earned both his CNA and CMA certifications. Chris played football at Fort Scott Community College and attended Pittsburg State University. Chris also attended Galesburg Christian Church. 

As a young man with both passion and an unfair amount of traumatic experiences, Chris was vulnerable to addiction, which he battled for several years. He chose to end his life just days before his 25th birthday. 

He is survived by his parents; his sisters, Haley and Kandi; his brothers, Jake and Tanner; his maternal grandparents, Joe and Roxie and his paternal grandmother, Eda. He is predeceased by both grandfathers, Bob and Carl. 

Chris will be cremated and will join his parents in Colorado. A private family service will be scheduled for the future.
