Christopher is survived by his father, Don Oatley, his mother Barabara Oatley, his sister Noelle Diak, his niece Mikaya Diak, nephews Justin and Tyler Diak. Chris is also survived by his extended family, (his Mexican side-as he would say) beginning with his wife, Gina Oatley and their adult twin daughters, Angelica Rosales and Ana-Alicia Locke, his loving grandkids, Amira Lahsen, Kadin Lahsen, Joeseph Cordova, Ayan Lahsen, Brian Herrera, Amara Herrera, and Tomas Rodriguez.
Christopher was a graduate of the University of Northern Colorado. He was a caring and loving person who enjoyed, being with his family, golfing, grilling steaks in the backyard and cooking for countless birthday or barbeque events. He loved the Colorado sunsets, concerts, and listening to music. Chris connected through music. He brought love and light into the world, and words cannot explain how much he will be missed.
Services will be at Horan and McConaty Funeral Service & Cremation, 5303 E. County Line Road, Highlands Ranch, CO 80122 on September 29, 2023, at 10:00 am. Reception to follow.
