Christian Ernest DeGroote, 51, From Laguna Beach California went to be at peace with our Lord on June 10, 2019. Christian is survived by wife of 25 years Jennifer DeGroote and his three beautiful children Lida, Reid and Boen. Chris had a passion for the outdoors, he loved fishing, camping, snorkeling, snowboarding, lobster diving, and anything that involved spending time with his family. Many of his friends would say he just had a knack for bringing people together, he lit up a room and had a way of making everyone feel welcomed. Especially if there were babies. As a big kid himself, he loved entertaining the little ones. Always willing to lend an ear, a hand, or the shirt off his back if you needed it. Everyone knew you could be open and honest with him because he never judged anyone and always accepted people for who they were. Day or night, he was someone you could depend on because he would drop everything to help. Chris was a loving and caring husband, father, and friend. His free spirit will greatly be missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing him.
