Christopher A. DosSantos, 63, of Wall, passed away at his home, Friday, March 1, 2013. He was born in Newark, NJ, raised in Marlboro, before moving to Wall in 1993.

He is also survived by several beloved, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters-in-law, neices, nephews, cousins and good friends. Chris's heart was always on the ocean, catching fish and laughing with his buddies. He was greatly saddened that he would not be here to take his two littlest grandbabies "cabbing with Pop Pop" as he did with his Sienna. We love you. You will be dearly missed. Friends and family can gather for a memorial service on Saturday, March 9th at 12:30pm at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 136 Wemrock Rd., Freehold, NJ 07728.
