Christopher James Gude, 34, of Conway, SC, formerly of Manchester, MD left this world on Friday August 2, 2019.

Born in Towson, MD, Chris is the only son of Jim and Brenda Gude.  He found joy and comfort in all things music and puppy related, especially unknown artists competing on television shows and blue pit bull puppies.  Chris' favorite spot in the world was to be alone (or with family) at a secluded body of water, fishing.  He shared his love through laughter and did not take life too seriously. Chris was a dedicated provider, an unbelievably hard worker and would have proudly accepted the recognition for Best in Performance from Canter Power given the opportunity. 

Survivors include his loving wife, Emily Beach; daughter, Lauressa Beach and son, Carter Gude all of Conway, SC; parents, James “Jim” and Brenda Gude of Sunset Beach, NC; and grandmother, Catherine Kalar of Rosedale, MD.

A Celebration of Chris’s Life will be held by his wife in her own time.  Personal invitations will be sent.

A special “Thank You” to family and loved ones and to Corporal Weldon, Trooper Betts, the  first responders and all those who reached out in support.
