On January 3rd, 2021 Chris Pejko died in a tragic motorcycle accident. Chris was a Montana native born and raised in Stockett-Sand Coulee, MT. His passion for helping people started when he graduated from Montana State with his LPN in 1994 and was finalized with a BSN from Argosy University in 2017. Chris was a rock star. Literally. He kicked cancer’s ass. Cruised all over the country on his Harley. Slashed through fresh powder on more mountains than most can even name, and cared for the sickest of the sick as an ICU Nurse working on the front lines against this pandemic and all throughout his career. When people say “live your life to the fullest,” Chris embodied that expression. He loved his concerts, his Harley, his snowboarding, his profession, his friends, and his family. If you take anything away from this tragedy, it’s that nothing is more important than family, friends and life experiences. Chris would drop everything at a moment’s notice to cover a shift, help a friend or walk your dog.
Chris is survived by his Dad, Johnny, his Mom, Jeanne, his sister, Dawn, his brother-in law, Rob and his nephews, Logan and Chad.
