On February 18, Christopher Morris Wroolie's six-year struggle with complications from Multiple Myeloma ended in the comfort of his Napa home surrounded by the warmth and love of his family and friends. A loving husband to Pamela Cosco Wroolie and a caring father to Taylor Ryan and Logan Christopher, his spirit and legacy will live on through the many lives he touched in his 63 years.
Born March 5, 1949 in San Francisco to Morris and Emily Cerefolini Wroolie, Chris grew up in San Carlos with his sisters Tonita and Sigrid Wroolie. While working as a young stock boy at a furniture store, Chris found a passion for in-home furnishings and interior design. His kind heart and dedicated work ethic resulted in his founding of two successful design companies, one in Los Angeles and one in the San Francisco Design Center.
In 2007 Chris was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma; although hindered by his disease, Chris' determination to live life to the fullest was as evident in his annual trip to Villefrance sur Mer as it was in the decadent dinners he frequently catered at his home in the Napa Valley.
A quiet patriarch, Chris' love of life and loyalty to those he cared for was unequaled; these qualities endeared him to all those who had the pleasure of his company.
His family invites you to celebrate his life on Wednesday February 27 from 2-4 pm at the SF Italian Athletic Club on 1630 Stockton St. in San Francisco.
Donations can be made to Multiple Myeloma or Amyloidosis research organizations.
