Christopher Doyle Browning, 17, the bravest young man we were blessed to know, passed away peacefully at his home in Williamston on Friday, March 25, 2022. 

Christopher is survived by his loving parents, Chris and Iris Fogle Browning, of the home, and his older brother, Kaden Browning, of Anderson. Christopher was born with an underdeveloped heart, but he spent seventeen years winning the hearts of everyone he met. Christopher did not let his condition define him. Instead, he threw himself into everything he loved. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, and exploring the outdoors. 

The family has chosen to celebrate Christopher’s life privately; however, they welcome your words of encouragement and expressions of sympathy. The family would like to convey their gratitude to the numerous friends and caregivers who supported and encouraged Christopher throughout his life.
