Christopher John Desjardin, 31, passed away suddenly on Friday, March 28th, 2014, in Massachusetts, following years of struggling with drug addiction.

He was born on Dec. 14, 1982 in Colchester, VT, the son of Ellen Desjardin and John Brigante. Chris graduated from Colchester High School in 2001.

Chris, or CoCoChris - as he was known fondly by his nephews Caleb and Devin - loved the outdoors and spending time with his family and friends. His constant smile and energy brought comfort and joy to all that knew him. Our memories will keep him alive in our hearts, and he will never be forgotten.

Chris is survived by his mother Ellen Desjardin, stepfather Gary Desjardin, sister Sarah Morin and husband Michael, stepbrother Jason Desjardin, stepsister Jennifer Desjardin, grandparents Charles and Claire Blanchard, grandfather John Brigante, great grandmother Winnifred Bean; nephews - Caleb, Devin, Tyler, Austin; nieces - Kelsey, Hannah, Taylor; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and a very special friend Erin Fregeau. Chris is predeceased by his father, John Brigante, and grandmother Velma Brigante.

Visiting hours will be 3-6pm, with a prayer service to follow at 6 p.m. Friday April 4, 2014 at the LaVigne Funeral Home at 132 Main Street, Winooski, VT.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society of Chittenden County - Relay For Life - Team Claire Bear
