Christopher married Catherine Goetz in 1974 and they had four children. His hobbies included anything and everything pertaining to the Civil War and World Wars, and the weapons, airplanes and submarines, etc. used during those wars. He loved to travel and took the family on many road trips to visit all the major national parks in the United States. Because he loved to drive, he purposely took all the scenic routes wherever he went! Christopher respected family heritage/history and he was a wealth of information about the Craven family tree. He was a member of Cornerstone Community Church in Springtown. Christopher was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Greg Craven and his sister, Mary Ruth Craven.

His grandchildren were the second best fulfillment of his life. He loved them all so much!!
