Obituary of Mr. Christopher Von Truitt    

Mr. Christopher Von Truitt of Millsboro, DE, passed away with his family by his side on Thursday, September 15, 2022, at St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington, DE.  He was 52 years old.  

Chris was born in Cordell, OK, to the late George C. and Linda F. Hawley Truitt.  He is preceded by his best friend Tim Cannon.  

Although Chris was born in Oklahoma, his parents moved to Delaware when he was about two months old, and he has lived in Millsboro since then.  He graduated from Sussex Central High School Class of 1989.  Chris played little league in Millsboro and during his school years played baseball and basketball for Sussex Central.  Chris’s son and daughter were the apple of his eye, and his world revolved around their events.  He spent a lot of time at the Millsboro Little League field as a proud father watching and cheering from the sidelines.  He was a member of the Good Ole Boys Foundation and former past Treasurer of the Millsboro Town Council.  Chris was known to be a happy person who had a sentimental side as well.  He was a great father and friend who will be dearly missed.   

Chris is survived by his son, Coulter Truitt, his wife Jordan, and his daughter Emily Truitt all of Millsboro, DE.  He also leaves behind a special friend and companion Lisa Truitt as well as his canine companion “Chili”, grand felines “Simba” and “Kiara” and six grand dogs “Maverick”, “Xena”, “Otis”, “Bruin”, “Banx “and “Oscar”.    Chris is survived by longtime buddies Kenny Warrington, Albert Brewington, Troy Rogers, and Chris Cannon,  along with  extended family members and friends.   

A celebration of life will be held at 4:00 PM on Sunday, October 16, 2022, at the Millsboro Fire Hall, 109 E. State St., Millsboro, DE  19966.
