Christopher Robert Morales II

Christopher Robert Morales II, age 18, passed away on July 4, 2016. Christopher was born on September 17, 1997 in Safford, AZ, to Christopher Morales and Shelly Tavison. He was affectionately known as Keet or Bubba.

Christopher loved being with his family and friends doing the things he loved such as fishing, hunting, camping, playing basketball, listening to music, telling silly jokes, and off-roading in his Jeep. Everyone who knew Christopher knew he had an obsession with shoes, whether it was Nike basketball shoes, Vans, Timberlands boots or his Gucci slides. One of his dreams was to design shoes as a profession and he spent countless hours sketching shoes and posting pictures of his shoes on social media.

He is survived by his parents, Christopher Morales and Shelly Tavison, his siblings, Benjamin Morales, Chelsea Morales, and Aisha Morales as well as several cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and great grandparents.

Services for Christopher will be held on Thursday, July 14, 2016 at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Morenci. Rosary will be prayed at 9 a.m. and Mass will begin at 10 a.m.

He is a beloved son, brother, cousin, nephew, grandchild and friend who was loved by many.

Services are under the direction of McDougal’s Caldwell Funeral Chapel and Gila Valley Crematory. Online condolences may be extended at
