In Celebration of

Christopher Elias Needelman

May 12, 1985 -  May 30, 2019

It is with deep sorrow and profound grief that we announce the tragic death of Christopher Elias Needelman, born May 12th 1985 in Montreal, from injuries sustained in a car accident on May 30th 2019.
Christopher was a loving son, brother, husband, father, and President and proud member of the MontreAler’s Homebrewing Club. He was a well-respected and talented Head Brewer who was on his way to fulfilling a dream of opening his own Craft brewery. His untimely death has left us completely shattered.
Christopher was gifted with a vibrant personality driven by determination and undeniable passions. He had a profound charismatic effect on people who were lucky enough to be touched by his wit, humor, warmth and energy when he engaged with them.
He will be forever remembered, missed and carried in the hearts of his cherished parents Paul Needelman and Alexandra Polyzos, his beloved wife Beth Milmine, son Alexander John (Lex), daughter Zoey Anne and his brother Lieutenant Michael Edward Needelman (Lieutenant Janna Leroux).
He will be dearly missed by his aunt and godmother Margaret Polyzos (George Priniotakis), cousins Emmanuel and Elias, his uncle Michael Polyzos (Despina Roumbas) cousins Virginia, Felicia, Amanda and Elias, cousins George Argiropoulos (Lina Rousopoulos) and cousin Louis Argiropoulos and uncle Robert Needelman.
He leaves also to mourn Beth’s parents John Gary Milmine and Barbara Kordas, Beth’s siblings Sarah (William Wheeler), Kayla (Brian Abbott), Janna and many relatives and friends.

Visitation will take place on Thursday, June 6th from 6pm-9pm and Friday June 7th from 9am to 11am at Belvedere Funeral Complex, 22025 Trans-Canada Highway, Senneville, Qc, H9X 0B2, 514 457-4440. A Celebration of Life will follow.
Donations in memory of Christopher may be made to the David Suzuki Foundation.
We will always carry your memory in our hearts.

Chris, oh man Chris.
We were the tightest of friends and brothers for most of the 2000s.
I always remembered skipping class with you and spending most of our Fridays running around downtown, blowing most of our money at the Pepsi Forum arcades, and then going out on the weekends to the clubs, or that trip we took to Aruba in 2005 to hang with your family. Or how we would always try to book our Humanities classes together so we can get Grell Grant, so we could giggle every time he mentioned the M-word.
Great times, great memories.
Sad to to hear about this news. My condolences goes out to your family and your new family. So tragic.
In parting words, I shall say what we always used to end our MSN chats and our phone conversations with: "Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah. BL."

Miss ya man.

You were the most dedicated and hard working of anyone I knew.

I lost someone I looked up to.

Jon, my son, introduced me to Christopher over 10 years ago. He was such a charming, outgoing and charismatic young man, always in a pleasant and cheerful mood. As the 3 of us worked for a few years in the same BMO building, we managed to go to lunch a couple of times: I recall his enthousiasme of creating an above ground garden which I thought was such a genius idea!
It is hard to find the words to express how sorry I am for his parents and wife and children loss. All I can say, is that you are all in my prayers to help you ease the pain.
Take a little confort in knowni g Christopher left his mark on earth and that he will be watching over you from above. My deepest condoléances.

Chris my friend,
you were a good friend and you were there when I needed someone to talk to or needed advice. We did have some great parties together and enjoyed life. You will be missed and one day we will meet again in the great beyond.
