Joseph Patrick Crist

May 03, 2003 - May 04, 2020

Together we celebrate the life of Joseph Patrick Crist. Please use this page to share your stories and memories.

Two days after turning 15, Joe decided to apply to be a Denver Parks & Rec lifeguard and his job brought him so much joy.

    Our moments, hours and days spent with JP were full with his quiet joy and dry humor. JP’s visits to Foxboro and Martha’s Vineyard will remain special memories for our whole family: sharing simple pleasures of childhood summers together… husking...  more

    It was always fun to have a teenager in our group and JP was happy to sit with the old folks for a few minutes and catch up. His smile was contagious and he will be deeply missed.

    I’ve known J.P as long as I can remember and it’s devastating to see him go especially at such a young age. Ever since I was little I’ve always considered him a great friend and someone to look up to. At parties he was always fun to be around and...  more

      Chris Evans I met Joe when he was in middle school and joined our new scout troop. He was a sweet quiet boy, but aslo very funny. He did a great job making his friends laugh, and he was loved by the group. Best wishes to the entire Crist family.

    Even though i only met JP a couple times I found him very engaging. I was with all the family last Christmas Eve and JP came over to talk to me to ask me about London where I live. He spoke with great confidence about his plans, his work and about...  more

    I remember JP as a little guy when you stayed with us in Plainfield, IL. He sang a song for us he had just learned - about beer. An adorable kid. You are in our thoughts. Wish we could be there with you. Much love

    We all remember not long after triplets were born that JP walked over and left a picture he had drawn on our front porch. In his sweet way, he simply left it, knocked on door and quietly headed down the block🦋Ethan remembers Summer 2018 when he,...  more

    Our dear JP, over the years, we were lucky to have so many good times with you--fishing from our kitchen balcony, planning squirt gun attacks, burning marshmallows, hiking, skiing, hiding Easter eggs, playing Battle Ship and Ticket to Ride, telling ghost...  more
