BEVERLY - Mr. Christopher G. Laserinko, 36, of Beverly, formerly of Dallas, TX, beloved husband of Margaret Anna Eliot, passed away Sunday, May 19, 2019 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Dallas, he was the son of Rose Laserinko-Brandt and the late George Laserinko. He was raised and educated in Dallas and attended the Immaculate Conception Grammar school and graduated from Jesuit College Prep School in Grand Prairie, class of 2001. Christopher continued his education, graduating from the University of North Texas with bachelor's degrees in Political Science and English and Southern Methodist University with a master's in Business Administration.

Mr. Laserinko began his dream job a little over 3 years ago with Wells Fargo as an Equity Research Associate, a position he was most proud of and excited to have. He worked up until the time his illness would no longer allow him to do so.

A wonderful and loving husband, son, brother and uncle; family was Chris's center, he loved being involved in their lives, following their many accomplishments and milestones and being surrounded by their love. He was unbelievably curious about the world, had a wicked and sharp sense of humor and really enjoyed having a good laugh even in the most difficult of times. Chris was always ready for a great debate and loved to play the devil's advocate, just to get a rise out of you. He loved to cook and experiment with food, a passion which he shared with his family and friends.

Christopher's love and sense of family was undeniable, his curious nature and sense of humor was legendary, and his debating skills formidable. A man of many talents, he will be fondly remembered and deeply missed by his loving family and many friends.

Surviving Christopher in addition to his loving wife Anna and his mother Rose Laserinko-Brandt and her husband Tom Brandt, are his sisters, Brenda Bragg, Fawn Payson and Lexi Brandt and several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and his troublesome feline friend Cricket.

ARRANGEMENTS: A funeral service will be held at a later date in Dallas, Tx. Assisting the family with the arrangements is The O'Donnell Funeral Home, 46 Washington Sq. (at Salem Common) Salem. In lieu of flowers expressions of sympathy may be made in Christopher's memory to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Jimmy Fund, P.O. Box 849168, Boston, MA 02284-9168.
