Christopher Joseph, 57, of Derry, NH, died Sunday, May 2, 2021, in his home. He was born in Lawrence, MA on February 1, 1964, a son of Marshall and Charlene (Patterson) Joseph and had been a resident of Derry & Chester for 30 happy years.
Chris was a proud machinist for Cobham Industries, always giving his all for his work. During his down time, Chris was an avid and skilled fisherman. When not spending his time by the water, he enjoyed playing the guitar, listening to Metallica and Black Sabbath, spending time at his local watering hole or watching any of the New England sports teams, especially the Bruins and the Patriots. As a child, Chris was the designated 'antenna holder' on game day so he and his siblings could catch the action. He was a happy-go-lucky conversationalist who could make anyone smile and was extremely proud of his meticulously cared for Long hair.
Chris is a beloved father, grandfather, brother, and uncle who will be remembered fondly by all who knew him.
He is survived by his son, Christopher M. Joseph of Derry; daughter, Kendra Kearney of Chester, NH; two grandchildren with one on the way; brother, Keith Joseph of Londonderry, NH; sister, Cynthia McNamara of North Andover, MA; sister Denise Herzog of Tampa FL; many nieces and nephews as well as a great-niece and great-nephew and the mother of his children, Stacy Joseph Hall.
