So sorry to hear of chris’s sudden passing. God be with you.

Thomas&Bobbi Bevan, Bluffton , Sc

I'm sorry for your loss. The scripture at Revelation 21:4 gives hope. There, Jehovah God, promises to do away with sickness and death very soon. This scripture has helped me in the past when dealing with loss. I hope it helps you too. For more information, please visit jw.org.

Kelly , Pooler, Ga

I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in God's promise that "Death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." (Revelation 21:4)

Thomas, Snellville , GA

My condolences to the family. When a love one pass away suddenly is something we can’t understand. It’s really sad because he was just starting his life. But we can find comfort in this words from the Bible in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4: “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God”. Yes, God wants to comfort you and he has made a beautiful promise to bring back to life our loves ones. John 5:28,29. For more information you can visit the website www.jw.org

Mr. Cary and Ms. Carol and Steve, we are so sorry for the loss of Chris. I met Chris even before I met Stephen -- to know him is to love him for sure...and now Steve is like a member of our family. I remember a few months ago when Stephen was at our house and suddenly disappeared for 30-45 minutes. Everyone thought Steve did an "Irish Goodbye" but when he came back he said he had just been standing in our yard talking to his brother on the phone. So sweet. You raised two wonderful boys and our hearts are breaking for you. You are in our constant thoughts and prayers. Love, Sarah, Will, Wells and Campbell Forrester

Sarah Forrester, Savannah, GA

Dear Cary and Carol, I’m so sorry to read about Chris I’m so sadden by this. I only knew him through the guards but what a joy he was. He was always smiling and so very nice. I’m so sad for the whole Downing family. He will truly be missed. I pray that his wonderful memories he left will help all of you through these difficult days, through what is suppose to be a joyous time of year, the months and years. Please know that your family have all my thoughts and prayers during this sad time. God now has a handsome guardian angel with a beautiful smile no one on earth will ever forget. With deepest sympathy, Nancy G. Floyd

Nancy Floyd, Guyton, GA,

Cary & Carol, My heart is suffering shock and sadness at the reality of this totally unexpected news........though not near to the magnitude as the two of you, along with Stephen/April, that each of you MUST be dealing with! However for me, though we were cousins that didn't cross paths near as often as we'd like there to have been, it never mattered to Chris as he made you feel loved and appreciated as though we saw each other often. After the privilege Sunday of not only being a part of witnessing the incredible out pouring of love and support from so many that attended the Memorial Service......I am HONORED and PROUD to have been BLESSED to be connected to Chris via Carol by blood, and the whole family that had such genuine character on display yesterday! I pray God will heal your grief over time and comfort ALL of us to sustain us from the emptiness felt from Chris' too soon departure from this earth! See ya later in Heaven CUZ, David Parham

David Parham, St. Cloud, FL

Carey & Family, My heart breaks for you and your entire family...please know you and all who knew & loved your son are in my prayers. May God grace you with some comfort & peace knowing that Chris is in his loving arms forever.

Patty Daniels Miller, Atlanta , GA

Cary & Carol, I am so sorry for the loss of Christopher. I am very sorry I was not able to get to town yesterday but I will be in touch.

Teresa Lockett, Savannah, Ga.

My deepest condolences go to Chris’s family and friends. He was a very good friend to me when I lived in Savannah. RIP, sweet soul.

MaryBeth Withers, Atlanta , Ga

I’ve known Chris as long as I can remember, ever since we were kids in grade school growing up on Skidaway Island, playing on the same neighborhood soccer team. He was only one grade younger than me and my friends but at the time we fancied ourselves SO much older. If I close my eyes now I can see him riding his dirt bike up my parent’s driveway and ditching it in the pine straw, most certainly bearing gifts of mixed tapes much to mine and my girl gang’s delight. Making and keeping friends was natural for Chris. Everyone he met was drawn to his infectious positive, affable and witty energy. I had the great fortune to remain friends with Chris over the years and even if I didn’t see him for a while our circles would collide again. There are only a handful of people that have captivated my attention for my entire life and Chris is one of them. I don’t think I could have had it any other way, he was just too unique and brought such a light to the world that will be missed by so many. To the Downing family, I hope you will find comfort and peace in knowing what an impression your son and brother made on everyone he met. He was impossible not to love and will be impossible to forget. Love, Alicia Klawin

Alicia Klawin, Redondo Beach, California

We remember Chris fondly. It seems like only yesterday we were all watching the boys growing up and watching them play sports at Savannah Christian. Please know that our prayers are with you and your family. May all the joys and precious memories of Chris sustain you and give you peace. Pat and Ernie Keich

Keich Family, Salisbury , NC

Christopher McMillan Downing died on December 7, 2017 of a heart attack while resting, in route from Mobile to Charleston for his next job assignment. Chris was born in Goldsboro, North Carolina at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, on April 4, 1976. Chris and his family returned to Savannah in 1980 after his father’s active duty military career. He spent most of his early childhood and adult life in Savannah. He was educated at Savannah Christian Preparatory School and received numerous technical certificates from Savannah Technical College including HVAC Technician, Integrated Circuit Repair and Computer Systems Technology. Chris was a veteran who spent seven years in the Georgia Air National Guard’s 117th Air Control Squadron where he was deployed to Italy in support of the Bosnian conflict and to United Arab Emirates in support of the Middle East conflict.

Chris had spent the last several years employed by Austal, USA, which is a major shipbuilder with facilities located in Mobile, AL and Australia. Chris worked on the US Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship program as a fitout tradesman and as a test and activation specialist. His last job was as a Post Delivery Service Engineer for the Navy’s Expeditionary Fast Transport program.

Chris had a lifetime love of music, and his lovable character, sharp wit and friendly disposition made him many true friends in both Savannah and Mobile. The outpouring of love and support from so many after his death shows the positive impact his short life had on so many. Christopher is survived by his parents, Cary and Carol Downing of Savannah, and his brother, Stephen Downing (April) of Savannah. He is also survived by his aunts, Carol Blaisdell of Savannah, Barbara McLaughlin (Leo) of Mt. Pleasant, SC, Rhonda Parham of Midway and his uncle, John Downing of Savannah. He is also survived by his beloved felines, Walter and Maceo.

A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, December 17, at 3:00 p.m. at Fox and Weeks Chapel on Hodgson Memorial Drive. Visitation will be from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
