Christopher Steven Bayer

Born: January 14, 1983 in Mission Viejo, CA

Passed:  August 20, 2020 in Mission Viejo, CA

The love of our lives, Chris, has left us way too soon.  He touched so many lives with his caring, loving and giving manner, and we will forever remember him as that beautiful person.  Chris is with the Lord in Heaven now and our hope and Faith will get us through this difficult time for all of us.  No words can express the grief that we are feeling, as Chris was such a shining light to so many.  He gave of himself unconditionally, and just wanted to make sure everyone else around him was taken care of.

Chris had so many people that cared for him, especially his Mother and Father, who fervently strived to help Chris with his personal life struggles.  He was so busy helping others, he forgot to help himself.

The legacy and memories of this child of God are many, and since he touched everyone so personally, it would be difficult to sum up his Life.  He was the best friend to everyone with whom he came in contact, even acquaintances that he wanted to save.  Chris found his Faith in the last year, and this seemed to give him peace and purpose.

Chris’ passions were cooking and being the “master chef”.  This is where he could put his creative juices to work and gave great joy to the recipients of his amazing creations. He started cooking at age 4 and continued this passion throughout his life. He was instructed at the Orange County School of the Arts and graduated in 2011.

His love of everything sports was also where he shined and found great happiness, starting with skiing at age 2, then mastering snowboarding and even instructing others at Snow Summit in Big Bear.  He also loved playing soccer and won many trophies as the ‘Player of the Year”. Chris’ approach to everything was to be the best, no second best for him.

Chris has so many Family and friends that have had the pleasure to have been touched by his gentle, caring, loving and spiritual soul,including his Mother, Cathy Demyanovich, His Father and Stepmom, Steve and Rosalva Bayer, his brother and sister-in-law, Daniel and Dawn Bayer and Step brother, Jonathan Valencia, including his undying love and gratitude for his Grandmothers, with whom he adored and vice-versa, Marie Bayer and Elizabeth Bingley. There are too many Aunts, Uncles, nephews, nieces, cousins and friends to name, but know that Chris made an indelible impression on each and every one of them.

Chris will be remembered for a lifetime and we know he is with all of the others who have journeyed to Heaven before him. Till we meet again our sweet boy. May God hold you in His hands.

    My deepest condolences on the loss of your son, Christopher.

    Words seem inadequate, but I want you to know that my heart goes out to you and your family. I hope you find some comfort from family and friends who can help you get through this awful tragedy. I cannot imagine what you are going through and just wanted to say that my thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

  3. My deepest sympathy for the loss of Chris. It is heartbreaking. Chris was such an amazing, caring, selfless, kind person. I am so grateful to have met him and got to spend the time I did with him. His passion for cooking and the devoted love he shared about his family was touching and inspiring. Chris was there and helped me through a very tough time in my life. He was so caring and just wanted to make people happy. I am so sorry for your loss.

  4. Chris..I am thinking about you so much the last few days. I am so sorry this happened..and I’m so sorry that I wasn’t there for you and that we lost touch in the last few years. It is still hard to believe when I think about you really being gone. Thinking of you always and remembering better days..
    Love your cousin,
