He was a fearless, consummate showman. In his youth, Chris wrestled in his backyard. Flips off a roof, onto a trampoline and over a fence would become a neighborhood event. They even sold popcorn and hot dogs. He’d graduate up to the big leagues, wrestling under the name Justice Pain and becoming a champion in CZW and wrestled as far away as Japan. Of course, later in life he traded his obsession with wrestling with that of being a dad: devoted to daughters, Audrey and Ava. Quieter times found him working as a journeyman with the iron workers union.
He is survived by his grandparents, Margaret and Earl Stauffer; his brother, Nick Wilson; his aunt, Karen Duaime (Dave); his uncle, Mike Stauffer (Rose); cousins, Anthony and Michael Stauffer and Joshua Duaime.
