Christopher Eric Thayer peacefully left this world on January 26, 2012 at home. Chris was born on 3/17/51 in Los Angeles. He lived throughout California, as well as France and Germany before settling in Truckee years ago. Chris was a loving husband to Kelly and father to Annika and Aleksen as well as a great friend to many. Besides his family, he had a passion for the outdoors and vintage cars. His time driving with the Skip Barber school of driving was a highlight for all! He enjoyed skiing, driving, golfing and traveling.
