Christopher was a loving young man who loved life. He was the loving son of Jennifer Martinez and brother of Caitlin Ripley and Richie Martinez. As short as his life was he always was fun loving and caring and would do anything for his family. A proud young father who was stricken too soon by a horrible disease he leaves behind a legacy of perseverance and a never ending fighting heart that will live on thru his family. Chris was loved by many and will always be cherished and looked upon as a hero that never quit

Chris, I never had the chance to meet you but I would like to say what a courageous guy you are. Rest peacefully and keep watch over your mother always. You truly are such a lucky guy to have such a strong, loving, and dedicated mother. God bless.

I will always remember the way Chris made Thomas laugh. He looked out for Thomas like a big brother. His relationship with his sister was envious! His mother would move Heaven and Hell for him. We have truely lost a beautiful soul. He will be greatly missed!

They always talk about hero's on the news you know the guys who stop robberies or save a random person but in my mind you were a hero. You were sick the last time I seen you but you had a smile on your face the whole day you didn't complain you were strong for your mom your brother and your sister and to me for you to know that you had a certain amount of time left but you still didn't let it get you down well that's a hero that's someone that in my heart and mind that I will always look up to so channel 2 I got a hero for one of your stories his name is Chris ripley. We will all miss you so fly high little cuz.
