Obituary for Christopher James Edward Bleavins
Christopher J.E. Bleavins passed away on February 17th at the age of 37.
Sgt. Bleavins enlisted into the U.S. Army as a combat engineer. He served alongside his fellow soldiers for two tours in Iraq and one to Afghanistan. As a decorated war veteran, Chris honorably retired in 2015.
Chris may have been private and quiet about his emotional struggles with PTSD. It may have shaped the way he lived but it will not define him. He is no longer tormented by the demons in his head.
His family encourages others suffering from PTSD to reach out for help. You are not alone and should not have to fight alone.
