<div itemprop="description">MORAN, Christopher Dean. Christopher passed away peacefully at Hamilton General Hospital, January 7, 2014, aged 20, as the result of injuries received when hit by a car December 21, 2013, while crossing the street in Cambridge, ON. He was a second-year student at the University of Waterloo&rsquo;s School of Architecture, where he was happily pursuing his dreams, surrounded by many friends. <br /> <br />Christopher was born and grew up in Ottawa, attending Lady Evelyn Alternative School, Alta Vista Public School and Canterbury High School&rsquo;s Visual Arts program. He was a talented artist, especially in three-dimensional media; a budding photographer who captured superb street photography while on a recent class trip to New York; and an eclectic music fan who loved attending Ottawa&rsquo;s annual Bluesfest. He was also an enthusiastic Taekwondo athlete who earned his 2nd Dan Black Belt from Canterbury Taekwondo. <br /> <br />Christopher leaves behind his parents, mother Elaine Dean, father Francis Moran, step-mother Linda Moran and step-father Sean O&rsquo;Brien; and brother, Julian, 18. He also leaves behind a wide circle of friends from both Canterbury High and the University of Waterloo who were attracted to his easy-going spirit, his generosity, his growing creativity in the kitchen where every dish could be improved by the addition of bacon, and his trademark beaming smile. <br /> <br />A celebration of Christopher&rsquo;s life will be held Saturday, January 18 at the Kelly Funeral Home Somerset Chapel, 585 Somerset St., Ottawa, with visitation between 2:30 and 5:30 pm, and a service starting at 3:30 pm. Christopher was fond of his rock-and-roll t-shirts and had an extensive collection of humorous Threadless t-shirts, so don&rsquo;t be shy to break out your favourite. <br /> <br />Christopher will always be in our thoughts and in our hearts. He was deeply loved and will be missed by his family and his many friends. <br /> <br />In lieu of flowers, donations are encouraged to the Mark Preece Family House in Hamilton, which was a tremendous support to Christopher&rsquo;s family. <br /></div>
