The 9-year-old’s father, William Chester, said his son wanted to make cookies, and after baking them, decided to take some to a friend who lives down the road.
Chester’s statement didn’t reveal an exact cause of death, but it was a touching tribute to his son.
An online fund was created on the fundraising site GoFundMe to help the family with funeral costs.
Christopher, who loved animals and cared deeply for his dog, Jethro, was a member of the 4-H Club of Chester and the Granite State Bow Hunters, according to his obituary.
In school, Georgian said Christopher always tried his hardest.
“He was a very sweet and loving boy. He did his best in school,” she said.
“Mostly what the children needed to do was to see us and see each other,” Georgian said.
A celebration of Christopher’s life will be held today from 3 to 7:30 p.m. at Brookside Chapel & Funeral Home at 116 Main St. in Plaistow. His funeral is planned for Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. at the funeral home with a liturgy of the word at 1 p.m. in Saint Anne’s Church on Emerson Avenue in Hampstead.
