He was preceded in death by his father, Carl Edward Yarbro, Sr. and his brother, Jason Wade Yarbro.

He was born December 22, 1973, in Buckeye, Arizona to Carl Edward Yarbro Sr and Debra Jean Barker Yarbro. And from that day on, he was off and running!

There is so much in between his birth and now that we could write, but the memories are so much greater.  He was a son, brother, father, and friend. He was a beloved drummer for several local bands and loved his music old and new. Chris was a DIE-hard Dolphins fan. And above all else, he loved John Wayne.

Chris left behind an amazing, blended family: Mom Debbie Fogle, Sister Vickie Yarbro, Brothers Carl Edward Yarbro Jr and wife Carmen, Jeremy Yarbro and Cody Fogle. His Children, Kaylynn Thompson (Mom, Jennifer), Jordan and Husband Nick Johnson, Jessalyn Yarbro (Mom, Carin), Dylan Yarbro (Mom, Sarah), Georgia Collier (Mom, Stacey), Katie McCormick and Brooklynn Yarbro, (Mom, Melody). His 5 precious grandchildren. He also leaves behind the two sisters he never knew he wanted, Courtney King and Yolanda Jones.

He also leaves behind the most amazing nieces and nephews he could ask for.

Honorary Pallbearers: Towne Adams, Kevin Montaner, Cody Fogle, Jeremy Yarbro, Dylan Yarbro, Yolanda Jones, Mikey "Bear, Jr" Yarbro.
