Christopher “Tank” A. Hernandez passed away unexpectedly on December 11 at the age of 37. He was born May 12, 1983 in Toledo to Tim Hill and Christina Hernandez and attended Waite High School Class of 2002. Tank enjoyed being a cook at various establishments most recently at The Four Horseman Bar & Grill.
Chris loved to dance, listen to Mexican music and entertain people. He was a funny person who had a big heart, whom everyone loved.
Chris was a big family man who cherished spending time with his son Zayden. Zayden would always bring out Chris’s inner child and they had a good time goofing around. Tank also enjoyed spending time with his nieces, nephews and hanging out with his cousins.
Chris’s faith was very important to him. He was a member of Vida Church International, where his life’s goal was to be a Deacon. Once he entered the church he knew he wanted to serve God. Chris loves his Bishop Chaz Boes and loved the relationship he had with all the members.
He is preceded in death by his father Tim Hill; grandparents Charles & Marilyn Hill; great grandparents Guadalupe & Frances Hernandez; Aunt Linda Hill and cousins Jenny Hill, Thomas Calderon and Erin Marious.
