Leaving a legacy of family and faith, Christopher Lyn Condict, 48, of Fishers, Indiana, passed away on November 17, 2023. He was born on December 1, 1974, in St. Louis, Missouri, to Lyn and Linda (Steube) Condict. Chris graduated from Evansville Central High School in 1993 and DePauw University in 1997, where he played football. He was a self-employed “sales guy” who never wanted to talk about work because life is so much more than your job.
Chris was a member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church where he walked and shared his incredible faith testimony during his recent battle with lung cancer. More than anything, Chris loved being with his family! His daily mantra was “Family comes first, and we should always love and respect one another!” Boating topped the charts as Chris’s favorite pastime with his wife, Heather and their 3 children, EJ, Elle, and Emily! He took great pride in giving tube riders exactly the ride they wanted and his ability to drive the boat, manage ski ropes, and get 4 skiers up at one time was second to none. Friends from Geist Reservoir always knew to look for the teal boat with an obscene number of inflatables if they wanted to meet up with Chris and his family. The most highly anticipated week of the year for Chris was the week the family spent at Norris Lake in Tennessee each summer.
Chris shared his love of the game as a youth football coach and board member for Mudsock Youth Football. From brightly colored team pants to singing fight songs after each game, he was known for his unique team traditions - he studied film like an NFL coach for 4th grade football. Chris was later selected as the head junior high football coach for Lions Football Club. He led by example, growing his faith and shining an incredible example of strength as he led his team for an entire season while battling cancer.
Chris loved all things sports – his favorite athletes were EJ, Elle, & Emily! He loved watching them play any sport and was proud to be the only dad in Indiana who did not give “post game dad talks!” on the way home from practices and games. As a long-time Cubs, Colts, and Pacers fan, he learned to be loyal even during tough times. He has spent many hours with his family watching sports!
Chris’s light-hearted humor, booming voice, and directness that we will call “leadership” will be so missed by family and friends.
He is preceded in death by Grandparents: Edward Steube, Dorothy (Joehl) Steube, Wilson Condict, and Evelyn (Flori) Condict and Aunt Joan (Daly) Steube
Chris is survived by his wife of 17 years, Heather Condict; children: EJ (15), Elle (13), and Emily (11); his parents: Lyn & Linda Condict; brothers: Kevin (Charee) Condict, Curt (Julia) Condict, Lyn Condict, Jr.; mother-in-law: Linda Bushmaker; brother-in-law: Bruce (Jodi) Matzke and his nieces and nephews: Calvin, Francie, Elise, Campbell, Grant and Greysen as well as extended family members and friends including ‘Aunt Lisa.’
We are forever grateful for the care Chris received at the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Community North. Dr. Reddy and his research team hold a special place in our lives! The Community North Interventional Radiology team took great care in helping Chris during recent months. Chris’s last few earthly weeks were as pain free and peaceful as we could have hoped with the help of the Community Hospice & Palliative Care Team. The outpouring of support for our family has been an incredible blessing.
