Obituary of Christopher L. Rankin Jr.


Christopher Lee Rankin Jr., 28, of Aristes, PA, passed away tragically on September 23, 2022. Born in Pottstown, PA, on May 30, 1994, Chris was the son of Sharon L. (Spaar) Foreman and Christopher L. Rankin Sr., and stepson of Thomas A. Ondik Jr. and Brooke “Momma Brooke” L. Kulp.


For the last six months, Chris enjoyed working for MABS (Maximum Advantage Building Solutions) in Bloomsburg, PA. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, listening to various genres of music, and building and sitting around campfires. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Chris understood that his greatest pleasure in life came from spending time at the dirt track watching countless races. He and his family made many fond memories visiting race tracks all over Central PA. He had an amazing personality and could always be counted on to be the life of the party! Chris will be deeply missed by all who knew him.


In addition to his parents, Chris is lovingly remembered by his daughters, Sophia S. Rankin and Hannah H. Rankin; his siblings, Michaela Foreman, Anthony Foreman, Zachary Foreman, Luke Ondik, Bailey (& Kirsten Brauner) Kulp, Cheyanne Rankin, Shenandoah Rankin, Dakota Rankin, Derek (& Kyra Jeans) Kulp Jr., Gavin Kulp, and Sam Miller; his maternal grandparents, Bruce and Carole Spaar; his paternal grandmother, Cathy Bryan; his uncle and aunt, Kevin and Patty Spaar; his cousin, Dylan Spaar; and many other friends and family.
