Christopher “Chris” Coty Hensley, 42, of Biloxi, MS, passed away Monday, November 28, 2022. Christopher was born in Huntsville, AL, to Robert and Trenna Hensley on March 23, 1980.
Christopher was a long-time resident of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, attended d’Iberville High School, and was formerly employed by AT&T. Christopher was a lover of the horror genre and was the quintessential joker who found great joy in tricking his family and friends. His favorite holiday was Halloween with April Fool’s Day coming in a close second. Christopher was intrigued by history, archaeology, and genealogy and loved to sit and talk about these things. He was an admirer of the boxer breed of dog, and he loved his boxer Caine and his fur-brother boxer Rocky, both of whom passed before he. He also loved his cat, C.A.T. Christopher was an outdoorsman who loved being on the water or sitting by a blazing campfire. He also loved spending time with his girlfriend and friends and was fiercely loyal to them and his family. Christopher felt his greatest accomplishment and greatest pride in life was his son, Cashton. Cashton will always remember his father as his best friend who had a heart of gold.
Christopher was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Clifford Cotty and Mayme Lou Massey Hensley, and his maternal grandparents, Everett Newell Strawn, Jr., and Irene Mary Gonsoulin Strawn.
Christopher is survived by his son, Cashton “Cash” Cody Hensley; parents, Trenna Ann Strawn and Robert Clifford Hensley; girlfriend, Dusti Shoemaker; sister, Tiffany Hensley (Scott Shubitz); nephew, March Shubitz; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends, many of whom Christopher called “brother;” and his beloved pet, C.A.T.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 12 pm on Monday, December 5, 2022, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church with a visitation beginning at 10 am. Interment will be at Coalville Cemetery.
