Christopher A. Mickel, 30, passed away on Thursday, May 10, 2018 with the absolute love of his life, Danielle "Dani" Ilyadis.
Born on July 1, 1987 in Albany, a son of Linda Mickel Wayman. Chris attended Colonie High School. He was a talented and passionate artist who loved to draw and tattoo.
Chris was predeceased by his grandfather, Ralph Mickel "Dad"; and his uncle, Ceaser Bernard, who was also a huge influence to Chris and was more of a father figure than an uncle.
Chris is survived by his loving and supportive family; mom, Linda Mickel Wayman; grandmother "Ma", Leona Mickel; brothers, Giuseppe "Joey" Greco and Nicholas Phibbs; sister, Stephanie Derikart; aunts, Lora Bernard, Debra Olendorf (Scott) and Karen Mickel; most loved uncle, Ralph Mickel (Marche). Chris' love and passion were his nieces and nephews, Jara & Gavin, Daniel & Owen and Marianna; several cousins; his beloved fur babies, Karma & Brooklyn. His family extends too many friends, there are too many to name, but they know who they are, especially his bros.
Calling hours will be held for Chris on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 from 4pm until 6pm at New Comer Cremations & Funerals, 343 New Karner Road, Colonie.
