OBITUARIES

Christopher "Buddy" David Hellums
November 29, 2008 - October 25, 2011

HELLUMS, CHRISTOPHER “BUDDY” DAVID -- Services are scheduled for 2:00 PM, Friday, October 28, 2011, at Christ’s Church, for Christopher “Buddy” David Hellums, age 2 of Roswell, who passed away October 25, 2011 in Roswell. Pastors Lonnie Owen and Gerry Chaves of Christ’s Church will conduct the service. Interment will follow at South Park Cemetery.
Buddy was born November 29, 2008 in Roswell, to Jared Don Hellums and Rachel Riley. His parents survive him.
Christopher experienced more life in his short time on earth than most in many years. He was never afraid; his smile was contagious. His love was unconditional and he gave it freely, saying with his arms stretched wide “I love you this much, that’s a whole lot”. Christopher thought everyday was his birthday and expected the birthday song daily as well. He knew every piece of equipment on a construction site, how to operate each one and the bigger the better. Christopher probably skidded into heaven—all the while telling Jesus “faster, faster”. We celebrate his life and thank God for giving him to us.
He is also survived by 3 brothers; Brannon Shelton, Cody Conn and Dusty Conn , all of Roswell, and a sister; Kathryn Hellums of Panama City, Florida. Other survivors include grandparents; Grammy and Granddad, Dorothy and Billy Hellums of Roswell, and grandmother, Sharon Tyler of New York, Great-grandma, Dorothy Sutton of Roswell. He is survived by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and Nana and Da, Joan and Johnny Young.
He was preceded in death by a grandfather, David Riley and an uncle, Christain Tyler.
