Christopher Anthony Salopek, 39, of Gibsonia, passed away all too soon on July 14, 2020. He was born in Rosedale, Md., and raised in Cranberry Township. Christopher was a most beloved son of Mark O. and Mary Jane (Costantini) Salopek; and a cherished older brother of Eric D. and Zachary J. (Gretchen) Salopek. He was loved by his aunts, Christine Rohe, Patricia Costantini and Jane Kenovich. He was a cousin to Adam (Aubrey) Rohe and Madeline (Zach) Biden, Jennifer (Josh) Acevedo and David (Jessica) Kenovich. He was a loving cousin to James (godfather) and Thomas Biden, Jacob Acevedo.

Christopher loved his family, the Penguins, the Steelers, Premier League Soccer, music, and the beach. A good book and his feet in the sand made him happy and at peace. He was funny and sweet and gentle, and possessed many special gifts, his beautiful smile being one of them. “I believe that each day is a gift. Let’s not waste too much time complaining about things. Every new day is a great day to get something done. Tomorrow is promised to no man.” — Dick LeBeau I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be. Rest In Peace Christopher. We have to face the Unimaginable.
