Christopher J. Secco, age 67, passed away on Friday, May 11, 2018 in Spring Hill, Florida. He was born in Detroit, Michigan on July 9, 1950 to Mario and Grace (Wyrybkowski) Secco and was the middle child of three siblings. Christopher attended Kettering High School and later graduated from Paul Cousino Senior High School. He enlisted immediately in the United States Marine Corps, where he served honorably for 3 years, including time spent in Vietnam during the height of the war. He earned several metals and ribbons for conduct, combat action, sharpshooter expertise, and the cross of gallantry. He then went into the Marine Corps Reserve for 3 years until transferring into the United States Navy, serving his country for another 6 years before being honorably discharged from service. Christopher married his first wife, the late Linda (Weddle) Balint, in 1969 and later fathered his only daughter Shannon. Post military, Chris went on to attend the Control Data Institute and earn a degree in Computer Science, later progressing to Computer Systems Analyst for EDS and eventually Hewlett Packard, where he worked for 30+ years until retiring 2010. Christopher had such a wonderful heart and cared so deeply for his family and pretty much everyone he met. He loved to make everyone around him laugh, and was the type of man that would have given you the shirt off of his back if you needed it. He enjoyed his wonderful dogs, sailing, rock and roll, riding his motorcycle, going to the shooting range, and watching vintage movies and musicals. Left to honor Chris and remember his love, are his daughter Shannon and her fiancé Michael, his sisters Linda (Secco) Bush and Sheila Secco, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents Mario and Grace (Wyrybkowski) Secco, and his first wife Linda (Weddle) Balint. Christopher will continue to be remembered as a bright shining light to all those that were lucky enough to know him.
