Christopher ‘Chris’ Camp age 67 longtime resident of Chicago Heights, Illinois passed away peacefully on February 27th, 2024 after a brief illness.  He preceded in death by his parents, Lawrence and Shirley Camp.  Beloved brother to Mike.  Loving cousin to Bill (Liezl) Bowman, Pam (Tom) Best, Patricia Conn and Rick (Luane) Conn.

Chris graduated from Bloom High School in 1975 where he enjoyed playing football and baseball for all 4 years; he then attended Southern Illinois University in Carbondale where he and his good friend Rob Nehf made the 300 mile trip back to Chicago Heights on bicycles in 4 ½ days.  This was before cycling was popular, on ‘primitive’ bikes, without GPS or helmets.

A proud moment in his life was getting to play baseball at Comiskey Park as an All Star for the Chicago Heights Panteras.  He also loved rock music and saw hundreds of concerts over the years with his brother and friends.

Chris worked for 20 years each for Panasonic in Franklin Park and Mondelez in Naperville.  He was a respected team player and well liked by his coworkers.

Chris will be buried on Wednesday, March 13th at Memorial Park Cemetery, 2368 W Main Street, Galesburg, Illinois at 1:00PM, he will be laid to rest next to his mother Shirley.  Everyone to meet at the cemetery.

Arrangements were entrusted to Kerr-Parzygnot Funeral Home 540 Dixie Hwy. (at Joe Orr Rd.), Chicago Heights, IL 60411.   Info: (708) 754-0016.
