Christopher Thomas Crumbaker, 37, of Lexington passed away on July 16, 2021. A Lexington native, born to Patricia Kay Marshall Crumbaker and the late William Thomas Crumbaker on May 19, 1984. He was a member of Bethel Harvest Church.
A graduate of Tates Creek High School (’02) he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kentucky. He was currently a successful Account Manager at Anixter in Lexington.
Chris was very passionate about his faith and his Church family at Bethel. He was dedicated to serving in Men’s outreaches, in general and with his church. He focused on health and physical fitness and kept a consistent routine at Planet Fitness. He was an avid fan of UK Athletics and a fantastic chef in the kitchen.

I had the distinct honor of being able to work with Chris a few times each week as he managed our account. Chris was always positive, supportive and responsive (even during difficult situations requiring immediate action). Although we never talked about it, it was obvious to me that Chris was also a man of faith (something I regret not sharing). Chris was the gold standard for inside sales and customer service. Our team loved him and thought he was the best at what he did - second to no one. He will be missed but not forgotten. I take joy in knowing that his spirit is with God and heaven is better with him.
Chris and I worked together on a couple accounts. We hit it off from the start and found that we shared a lot of similarities. His candor and commitment allowed us to achieve some special recognition within our organization and I know he was proud of that. What I am more proud of is that we were able to share our personal challenges and testimonies with each other and it gives me relief knowing how right he was spiritually even though it’s never good when someone is taken so soon. I pray for blessings over Chris’ family as they process this heavy loss.
