Chris spent half of his life growing up in Livingston and the latter half in the Belgrade area. During his most recent years he traveled from one coast to the other, living in the Seattle area where he planned on returning one day to attend the Seattle Art Institute and further pursue his passion for photography and art.
Chris enjoyed creating abstract art with oil paintings and charcoal drawings on top of many other things, he also loved taking pictures of nature and everything on the side and in between while on his adventures and of course the family cats. Another passion of his was music, which transcended eras and covered a vast range of genres.
One of his most recent travels led him to Europe where he spent time in one country then moved to the next exploring the world courageously on his own and getting a taste of cultures and life outside the states.
While living in Seattle he worked hard in the construction industry, and while in the valley he worked at the Gallatin Rest Home doing his part at keeping the residents comfortable and content during their stay as he did with all those he knew and loved.
Chris is survived by his parents, Ernie and Lonelle (Sangsland) Lytle of Belgrade; sister, Jennifer King; brothers, David Lytle and Joshua Lytle; his aunt and uncles, David and Lonette Keehner, Jay Alexander; cousins, Nash Sangsland, Nicole Keehner, and David Keehner, Sherrie and Richard Carlton, Laura and Aaron Taylor; nephews, Jayden Sangsland, A.J. Taylor, Ben Taylor, Isaac Taylor, Zach Taylor, Gabe Taylor; great-grandmother, Annie Wall; as well many, many more nieces, nephews and cousins, far too many to name.
