Christopher R. Saucier, age 45, passed away surrounded by his family on September 16, 2022.
Chris was born January 18, 1977, in Grosse Pointe Farms. He graduated from De La Salle before continuing his education at University of Detroit Mercy where he received a bachelor's degree. Chris met the love of his life, Heidi, by chance over 20 years ago when they both signed up for a volunteer overtime shift where they both worked. The chance meeting started an adventure of a lifetime that led to a 10-year marriage and their beloved son, Nathaniel. Chris was an avid sports fan, especially of the Detroit Pistons. He enjoyed gaming and films and had an affinity for the horror genre. Chris was also a talented writer and in the past year achieved a personal goal of finishing his own screen play.
Christopher's true calling in life was being a loving and active father; he loved being a dad to Nathaniel and Nathaniel loved having him as a dad. They spent countless hours playing tee ball and basketball together and walking anywhere Nathaniel asked him to go.
Chris will be remembered as an amazing person who showed genuine interest and concern for the people around him and for his desire to help others where he could. He showed this throughout his life until the very end, when the family discovered he signed up to be a registered donor and he was able to give the "gift of life" to others by being an organ donor.
Cherished husband of Heidi Saucier. Beloved father of Nathaniel Saucier. Loving son and son-in-law of Raymond Saucier, Joanne Saucier, Pamela (Louis) Matteson, and John Dominski. Chris is also survived by many dear aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
