A mom's worst fear is my reality as I write an obituary for my first born child, Christopher Blake Sainsbury. He was born in Roseville on October 17, 1986 and died on November 21, 2012. In addition to leaving me, Susan McQueen, he also leaves behind his brother, Elliott Sainsbury & his sister, Leah Sainsbury; also his paternal grandma, Dorothy Sainsbury, Penn Valley. He also leaves his beloved daughter, Austin Helaine, of Omaha, Nebraska. Christopher was torn from the love of his life, Katie Pulliam, Grass Valley, before their lives could be joined. Christopher is preceded in death by his father, Bill Sainsbury. Christopher went through the LUSD schools; Kindergarten through 6th grade at Loomis Grammar, and Placer Elementary for 7th & 8th grades. Christopher went on to Del Oro before graduating from Maidu HS in 2005. After graduation, Christopher joined the Army & served his country proudly for 7 years; he was deployed for 2 tours in Iraq & 1 tour in Afghanistan. He was awarded a purple heart for gunshot wounds received during a patrol in Salam Pak in May of 2007.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Support Our Troops, Intermountain Primary Children's Hospital (Salt Lake City), or a charity you prefer. Most importantly, please promise your family you will wear a seat belt: they do save lives. Christopher, we will miss you so much.
