Christopher Virgil Truesdale Sr. was born in Bronx, New York to Leroy and Dorothy Truesdale on April 19, 1960. Christopher passed away in his home on June 4, 2021 in Lugoff. He entered Active Duty military service in the United States Army straight out of high school. He is most notably known to boast of his time spent as a medic but actually spent much of his military service as a communications specialist. In the years following his military service Chris worked several jobs. He was most proud of his clothing company “LoProfile” and of being a vendor on the streets in the upscale neighborhood of SoHo. As a vendor in SoHo he got to rub elbows with the rich and famous. He has been seen with the likes of Whoopie Goldberg, Russell Simmons and many others. He enjoyed alternating his time between the hustle of New York and the ease of South Carolina, finally settling for the country living of south and indulging his passions for animals. He is known to have a barrage of animals on hand to include at the time of his passing his beloved dog Drake, a goat named April and a slew of pigeons. Christopher is survived by: his daughter, Sareena Renee Bellamy of Grovetown, GA; sons, Christopher Virgil Truesdale Jr. of Lugoff and Terrell Starr of N. Y.; brother Leroy William Truesdale III of Bronx, N. Y.; sisters, Lorie Truesdale of Columbus, Georgia and Hortense Truesdale; mother, Dorothy Truesdale; three grandchildren, Miraj Queen Killingsworth, Bartholome Amarion Bellamy and Taliyah Renee Bellamy; nieces, Jamilah Passmore and Taneisha Passmore; and numerous other loving family and friends. In accordance with the COVID -19 guidelines, the family is requesting no visitation at the home. Graveside services will be held 1:00 p. m., Friday, June 11, 2021 at the Unity Family Life Cemetery, 274 Lachicotte Road, Lugoff, with the Rev. John Dicks, Sr., officiating. The procession will leave at 12:30 p. m. from the home.
