For several decades, Christian’s family has spent their yearly vacation in Stone Harbor. Throughout those years, Christian’s love for his wife, daughters, and Lord remained steadfast.
His greatest delight in life was being with his family, and those who were fortunate enough to have survived him will appreciate the memories he left behind. Carol A. Gordon of Palmyra and Barbara J. Morrow of New Cumberland survive him, as do their daughters; grandkids Matt Gordon, Jason Morrow, and Jennifer Lengel; twelve great-grandchildren; and a brother, Gene C. Cromer of Shippensburg.
