Christopher “CJ” Jon Cragun

September 21, 1966 - May 20, 2016

Christopher “CJ” Jon Cragun, our beloved father, grandfather, son and brother returned home to our Heavenly Father on May 20, 2016 at the age of 49.

CJ was born to Emielie Evans and Ralph Cragun on September 21, 1966 in Ogden, Utah where he had lived his entire life.

On September 19, 1987, he married Kristen Cragun and had four beautiful children:  Kelly (Casey), Trisha, Amanda, and Braden.  He then became a grandfather to four precious grandchildren:  Aaliyah, Elijah, Adrien and Kaysten.

CJ graduated from Bonneville High School in Washington Terrace and worked a variety of jobs but was more drawn to construction and handyman work.  Some of his hobbies include being outdoors, camping, fishing, boating and hunting.  Though it has been some time since he was able to do a lot of those activities due to his physical limitations, his passion was strong and always talked about getting back to doing what he loved.  He also loved to be with his kids and grandchildren as much as he could.

CJ is survived and deeply missed by his four children, four grandchildren, his mother Emielie Evans (Richard), his father Ralph Cragun, sister Bambi Cragun, brother Dee Cragun and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and four nephews.

He is preceded in death by both maternal and paternal grandparents, his brother Kirk and his wife Kristen.
