Obituary - Christopher Paul Osborn

Christopher Paul Osborn was born June 26, 1991. He passed away March 15, 2021, at his home at the age of 29 ¾ years. To his paintball friends, he was better known as “Ducky”. He was loved by many and will be sorely missed by his friends from paintball, Wasted Youth Car Club and by his co-workers from Wal-Mart and McDonalds, and by his many other family and friends. 

Chris donated his body to the University of Kansas Medical Center for research purposes as he died from a rare form of sarcoma known as ASPS. He touched many lives, was a hard worker, an avid environmentalist, a paintball ambassador and an avid reader. Chris loved to restore old tractors, raise bunnies, rescue turtles and take care of his mom and dad.

Survivors include his parents, Paul Osborn and Elaine Gray Osborn. He is also survived by his three sisters, Dyalah Gadberry (James), Amelia Black (Stephen) and Meghan Ford (Davey) and a brother, Franklin Osborn (Erin) and six nephews and one niece. He was preceded in death by a nephew, Aiden.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Care to Share, Integrity Hospice or the charity of the donor’s choice and may be left in care of the Cheney Witt Chapel, 201 S. Main, P.O. Box 347, Ft. Scott, KS 66701. Words of remembrance may be submitted to the online guestbook at
