Christopher Wilson

Christopher Wilson

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.

Come celebrate 42 great years Sunday March 8, 5 to 7 p.m. at the National Park Fire Department Banquet Hall, 523 Hessian Ave, National Park, where there will be a 7 p.m. service.

    I am so sorry for your loss, I didn’t know Chris long, but in the short time I knew him he shared stories of his wrestling history (my son was a huge wrestling fan and as his mother had to learn all about the wrestling world, although I knew nothing about CZW, both my children were huge fans). Chris lit up when he talked about how he got started in wrestling and talked about how proud he was of his brother, Nick. Chris talked about his daughters and his life with them, they were his absolute world. He smiled brightly when he talked about them. It was my pleasure getting to know Chris these last few months, again. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Chris was a great brother Ironworker to all the members of Local 401. He was an even better mentor to a lot of the younger apprentices like myself. He wanted you to be the best and tried to lead by example, and of course made some time for a few drinks
