Chris Stockmann
1988 - 2016

Chris Stockmann PhD, died in a rock climbing accident Monday, July 25, 2016. He was 28 years old.

Chris was known for his brilliance, passion for research, but most of all for his warm, humble, unpretentious style, and incredible kindness that touched everyone he met. His smile and warmth were a constant, as was his incredibly optimistic outlook. Generosity pervaded everything he did in life. He had innumerable friends and collaborators within the University of Utah, where he was a Research Assistant Professor, and across the country.

Equally passionate about the outdoors from a young age, Chris loved backcountry skiing, mountain biking, hiking, canyoneering, and rock climbing. He is survived by his beloved sister, loving parents, and his adored fiancé and children.

We will Celebrate Chris’ Life on Friday evening, July 29 from 6-9pm, up in the mountains he loved so dearly. Please bring your stories and memories, and we will sit by the campfire and celebrate the joy Chris brought to our lives. Spruces Campground Site G-3 (group site, signs will be posted) Big Cottonwood Canyon, Salt Lake City, Utah. The campground is about 9.7 miles up the canyon. This is a campfire celebration so wear comfortable, casual clothes.

In lieu of flowers, a scholarship fund will be set up in his name.
