Christian Lee Grochowski, 55, passed away Monday, December 12, 2022, at Banner Wyoming Medical Center surrounded by family and friends following a short but courageous battle against cancer.
Chris was born April 18, 1967, in Chicago, IL. Years later his mini-me, Grant, was born April 18, 2010. Chris loved spending time with his family, especially anything outdoors, and following the Chicago Bears and Cubs. He was looking forward to watching his two youngest children graduate high school, grandkids, retirement, and the Bears having a winning season.
Chris is survived by his wife, Annette, sons Gavin, Garrett, and Grant, and daughter Kemmerer, all of Casper, WY; brother Mike (Tanya) Grochowski of Henderson, NV; sisters Lisa (Jeff) Jones of Lake Zurich, IL and Deardra Cote of Columbus, Indiana; mother-in-law Kathleen Streeter of Sundance, WY; brother-in-law Clinton (Karey) Streeter of Wright, WY; and several nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank nurse Abby at Community Health Center of Central Wyoming (who Chris felt saved his life at the time); the staff at Banner Wyoming Medical Center, including Dr. Wheeler and neuro nurses Meagan and Joshua; the staff at the University of Colorado Anschutz Cancer Center, including Dr. Del Chiaro and Dr. Leal; and the staff at Rocky Mountain Oncology for their care during Chris’s illness. The past six months presented many challenges for Chris, and it meant a lot knowing that so many people were fighting for him.

A graveside service will be held in Kaycee, WY at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to help with medical bills and other expenses are greatly appreciated. Arrangements are under the direction of Bustard and Jacoby Funeral Home.
