Christopher George Yock

Christopher George Yock, a resident of San Rafael, CA, passed away at home on June 8, 2021. Christopher was born on December 27, 1963 in San Francisco, CA. His love for "The City" was a constant throughout his life, from his immense knowledge of the best local eateries to ultimately becoming a public servant as a Firefighter for the San Francisco Fire Department.
Christopher was born to Jimmy and Anita Yock. He grew up in the Westborough neighborhood of South San Francisco.
Christopher began his journey in the fire service as a Firefighter at the Alameda Naval Airbase Station, followed by the Presidio Fire Department, before finally achieving his dream career as a Firefighter for the San Francisco Fire Department. Christopher loved his career in the fire service, and was a beloved firehouse chef who prepared amazing meals with an infectious happiness.
Christopher lived a full and vibrant life, undeniably meeting and making lifelong friends along the way. For anyone who knew Christopher, they knew his immense happiness and passion for traveling, cooking, photography, and music. Christopher was a seasoned world traveler, with some of his favorite destinations being Palau, Porto, Maldives, Tahiti, Bali and numerous Maui family trips.
For all his noted passions in life, Christopher's greatest happiness and source of pride was his son, Cayden Yock. Christopher was known for always proudly referring to Cayden as "my son" with a beaming smile. Christopher and Cayden loved to spend their time together riding mountain bikes, going to swim meets, taking road trips, and weekend drives in Christopher's beloved Alfa Romeo Spider.
Christopher loved to live life to its fullest, and he lived to love his family and friends. Family was his priority in life. Christopher was the DJ with a never-ending playlist at every family gathering, along with a cooler filled with an eclectic mix of San Francisco culinary treats and drinks. His photography skills have captured countless family memories and will be cherished by his family for generations to come.
Christopher is survived by his siblings, Jeffery Yock and Jennifer Yock-Lanthier, his son, Cayden Yock (Nancy Galvin), his brother-in-law, Sean Lanthier, and his nephew and nieces, Danielle Gracia, Alyssa Sozio, Adam Lanthier, and Ashley Yock.
The family extends its gratitude to the San Rafael Fire Department E-57C for their heroic efforts.

I am so thankful that God put you in my life. Best 12 years of my life!
We shared so many beautiful moments together, and I am certain that we were soulmates.
With you by my side, there was never a sad moment.
Thank you for making every day a good one.
I will miss you forever.
I’ll miss watching movies together even though you always fell asleep before a movie was over.
I’ll miss your companionship, your kisses, and the best hugs!
We dreamed about our marriage and about one day starting a family, but God had other plans for us.
I am glad I was able to spend the last minutes of your life by your side until your last breathe; until death do us part.
You’ll always be the love of my life

My condolences to the Yock family. I had the pleasure of growing up in the house sandwiched in between the Yocks & the Lanthiers, where my parents still reside. I always looked at Chris as the much much older brother that just happened to live next door. He was very much like his dad, very outgoing & energetic. I remember when I was around 7, I was so mad at him for climbing our palm trees. It was my first "get off my lawn" moment. He would just hang off of it having the time of his life. Like Marcie said, he was definitely the cool guy on our street. I believe before he had his Alfa Romeo he had a red Honda CRX. When I think of Chris & his family I remember how fun it was to grow up on that street.

My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to Cayden, Chris’s family, and every single person he touched with his smile, kindness and incomparable energy. :(

I was blessed to have known such a solid good guy as Chris, whom I met through his soul-brother/travel-buddy Nick Salugsugan. I have great memories of Chris as a silly, happy guy when I got to experience and explore such beautiful destinations as Palau in 2013 and Bali in 2014 with Chris and Nick.

I haven’t seen him in person in years, but he never lost touch and I’ve always felt his presence through his messages up to recent; he’d send me posts and photos of Palau, the Rock Bar-Bali, Maldives or he’d just simply say Hi...

Chris’s energy and passion for life is such an inspiration... I am saddened that he is gone, and I can’t imagine how heartbreaking his sudden departure must be, especially to those so close to him, his family, and closest friends.

My deepest condolences...
May you Rest in Paradise Chris...

I wanted to send my condolences to Anita and Jim and to say I'm so sorry for their loss. My name is Marcie Escobar I was their neighbor across the street when we were growing up. I have great memories of Chris. He was the cool guy on the street, with a cool little red car. Always had great music blasting when he was either driving or washing his car. I was saddened when I found out the news all the way in Arizona where I reside. My thoughts and prayers are with him Family.
