DALY, Christopher Brendan, 35, went to be with his Lord on April 20, 2019. He was predeceased by his brother, Patrick, 16, who he lived to honor and has finally joined in Heaven. Chris is survived by his parents, William and Carol Daly; and his 100 year old grandmother, Ferne Schreffler; uncle, Robert Bradley (Vickie) Schreffler; aunt, Tara (Jerry) Ranson; uncle, Sean (Ellen) Daly; and the love of his life, Shauna Phillips. Chris is loved and survived by many cousins, who will remember his confidence and creative abilities. Chris was predeceased by his proud grandfather, Robert Schreffler, from whom many of those creative ideas flowed; and his loving grandparents, William and Gloria Daly. Chris was a champion wrestler at James River High School. Rugby became his passion at James Madison University and over the years he played for several teams in Virginia, Boston and Dublin. He was physically strong, but had a character that was even stronger. Chris enjoyed travel, he loved investigating other countries and understanding other cultures, and he had been living in Brisbane, Australia for the past four and a half years. He had a remarkable talent for working with wood and was accomplished as a finish carpenter, but in recent years, Chris had enjoyed cabinetry and the challenge of making furniture. He was a loyal friend to all he met, and seen as a moral compass by those who knew him best. A celebration of Chris's life will be held at Stony Point Presbyterian Church in Bon Air on Saturday, July 20, at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, his family requests that donations be made to a charity of your choice in Chris's name.
