Chris James Kraus, 61, of Melbourne, Florida, passed away while surrounded by family on Thursday, March 29, 2018.

Chris was born August 11, 1956, at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, to Helen (Wellman) and James Christian Kraus who preceded him in death. Also preceded in death was his brother, Brooks Chandler.

Chris leaves his wife, Marilyn (Stockman) Kraus; son, James Kraus and his wife Kim; grandchildren Landon, Lily, and Lincoln; siblings Judy Kannar, Cathy Zaccaria, and Craig Kraus.

During Chris’ twenty year career in the U.S. Air Force, he developed his primary specialist skills of information management.

His hobbies included fishing, guitar playing, photography, and watching old movies. But most of all he loved his family, friends, and best buddy Bosco.
