Obituary

On Wednesday, December 14th, 2022, Christopher Gregg Trace passed away at the age of 51.

Chris was born on February 8th, 1971 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Robin Hansen and Gregg Trace.

Chris graduated from Deltona High in 1988.

Chris had a passion for nature. He was an avid fisherman as soon as he was old enough to hold a fishing rod. As a teen he would often hop in his grandpa’s boat and mosey on down the St. John’s river fishing and enjoying the water.

He worked in horticulture. Most of his time, working and spare, was spent around plants whether it be gardening at home or overseeing the color plantings in many different areas of The Villages Retirement Community.

Chris was charismatic and thoughtful. His smile lit up a room; his laugh was contagious.

Chris is survived by his spouse, Angela Trace, mother, Robin Hansen, Stepmother, Joan Trace, children Hale and Connor Trace and his half sisters Sarah Gilling, Jennifer Trace and Cheri Cobb.

A service will take place at St. Mark the Evangelist Church in Summerfield, FL 34491 on January 5th, 2023 at 10am.

    I will always remember Chris for his humor and his loving heart. I got to know and understand him in a way that most didn’t understand him. He was a true gentleman. He made me laugh with his impromptu jokes, silly snapchats, and crazy stories. There was never a dull moment. Working with him was a joy. He talked a lot about his family (especially his uncle), fishing, passion for horticulture and how much he loved his children. I will miss calling him and saying “hey Chris wuz up?” Talking to each other about what we had in common and knowing I could confide in him. I will continue those conversations in prayer with him. I will miss him so very much.
