Christopher Sean Monsen
Of Buffalo Grove

Christopher Sean Monsen was born June 18, 1989 in Lake Forest to Douglas and Tonya (nee Morris) Monsen. He died June 10, 2017 at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.

Christopher was an avid fisherman, motocross rider, Marine and wonderful father. Every chance he had, he would be on a pond, lake or river with a fishing pole in his hands. He started racing motocross at the age of four, and won the first race he ever competed in. Chris competed in motocross competitions until the time of his Marines service, which he joined at the age of 19. Christopher served in Afghanistan as a Combat Engineer. His son Elliott was born August 7th, 2015, and after his son’s birth he became the most loving, caring, and adventurous father.

Chris is survived by his parents Douglas and Tonya; his sister Elizabeth Monsen; his son Elliott Monsen; his grandparents Robert and Nedra Haupt and Ken and Louise Monsen; his step grandfather Dave Stewart and by many aunts, uncles and cousins.
