Chris was born in Portland, Oregon to Brian and Mary Supalla. He was raised in Beaverton, Oregon where he attended Holy Trinity Catholic School and Jesuit High School. He attended Oregon State University where he received his Bachelor of Science in Accounting & Finance, graduating Cum Laude in 2012. Upon graduation, he worked for Precision Castparts as a Tax Analyst from 2012 to 2021. Chris was a resident of Tigard, Oregon.
Chris was a handsome, genuinely kind, funny and caring person throughout his 32 years. He had a knack for clowning around and making lame jokes that brought joy to everyone he was with. Chris’s talent for music started when he learned piano in elementary school. Later, he became a skillful self-taught guitarist who loved to jam with his buddies. Chris loved taking risks to challenge nature from an early age. He learned to ride a bike at 4 years old which led to performing tricks while BMX biking. His pursuit of greater biking adventures grew into a passion for downhill mountain biking where he blasted down the trails of Hood River, Oregon and Whistler, B.C. He was often seen performing jaw-dropping aerial tricks on his bike, stunning those around him. Chris’s love of conquering the trails also extended to 4-Wheelin’ in his Jeep Wrangler. With his Wrangler he took on challenging trails, climbing over logs and boulders, and plowing through the rugged trails of the Tillamook Forest. In pursuit of greater challenges Chris learned rock climbing with his girlfriend Karen and sister Laura. They embarked on numerous trips scaling the climbing sites around the Pacific Northwest.
Chris will forever be remembered by his life of Awesomeness & Fun. We are proud of his many accomplishments, saddened by his loss, and will love him Forever. May he Rest in Peace.
