Christopher M. Plante, 50, of Keansburg, passed away Sunday, July 24, 2011, following a boating accident on the Navesink River. Christopher was born Sept. 15, 1960 in Bethesda, Md. He grew up in Middletown, where he graduated from Middletown Township High School North and after went on to graduate from DeVry Institute. After graduation, Chris was employed by Bell and Howell as a customer service engineer. In 2001, he settled in Keansburg. Chris loved his longtime companion, Debbie Rich, along with the New Jersey Devils, the New York Giants, his cats, motorcycles and boating. He was most at home, on the water, or riding his motorcycle. He also enjoyed dirt bikes, barbeques, fireworks, woodworking and restoring furniture. Chris was always quick to lend a helping hand whenever asked or if he saw the need. He loved to hang out on the beach with his family and many friends. The word "No" was not in Chris' vocabulary.
He was predeceased by his father, C. Bertram Plante; and his sister, Suesan Dolan. Christopher is survived by his beloved companion, Debbie Rich; his loving mother, Gladys A. Bryant Plante; his dear sister and brothers, Barbara Plante of Middletown, C. Bertram Plante III and his wife Mary Lou of South Toms River, and Timothy Plante and his wife Kelly of Cooperburg, Pa. He is also survived by his cherished nieces and nephews, Jesseca Plante Campbell, CB Plante, Coral Ballister, Alexandra Plante and Ian Plante, along with many great friends. He will be sadly missed, but never forgotten.
