I’m writing this obituary for my son to hopefully help others who may be struggling with addiction. 

Christian was a sweet and loving soul. He was kind and loyal. You could always count on Christian for a big smile, a funny joke, and he had such an infectious laugh. He loved playing golf, watching anime (mainly Dragon ball Z), and watching comedy podcasts. He loved being with family and friends. 

Behind the smile, the jokes, and the laughs, was a struggle not everyone saw or knew about. Christian turned to opiates right out of high school in hopes of conquering the demons he wrestled with. Two trips to rehab and 6 overdoses could not loosen the grip the disease of addiction had on my sweet boy. Despite all of his struggles, he always kept his sweet nature and caring heart. He never gave up fighting when he could have easily slipped back into a life of chronic drug use. He remained hopeful of his future and for the first time, in a very long time, he was making real progress towards reaching his goals.  But addiction doesn’t care about goals, progress or future. It doesn’t care about how kind and caring you are. Addiction doesn’t care about how much you love or how much you are loved. Addiction is a disease. One that has to be treated differently for different people. Unfortunately, Christian wasn’t able to find a treatment that worked for him before he succumbed to it. 

He leaves behind his parents, Shanna and Kurt Glore, Randy Jones, and Matthew and Tessa McEntire; Brothers and sisters, Grant McEntire, Eli Glore, Max Glore, Claire Glore, and Fallon Jones; Grandparents, Brenda Knorr, Barb Jones and Jamie Sutton, Homer and Jeanie Dixon, Karen and Gordon McEntire, and Mike Glore; Great-grandpa, Bob Jones; Cousin and best friend Remy, and many uncles, aunts, cousins and friends. 

He leaves behind a hole in the hearts of many that will never be filled, but also many happy memories that will never be forgotten. 

Though Christian told me countless times he was ashamed of his addiction, his family never was and that is why I am unashamedly sharing this.
