He was born January 20, 1978, in Wheeling, WV., the son of Rebecca Wheeler and Roger Rusiecki.

Chris enjoyed working on cars, and working on and riding motorcycles. That was his passion in life. He also enjoyed spending time boating on the river.

Friends will be received for a memorial service to pay tribute to Chris and celebrate his life Wednesday evening from 7-9 p.m. at the Borkoski Funeral Home, Tiltonsville.

Chris had the philosophy that you should live life to the fullest, and to live life each day as if it were your last – and he did.
