Chris Skyles

September 17, 1984 — January 26, 2024

Christopher Lewis Skyles, was born on September 17, 1984, in Chattanooga, TN to his parents Mickey Skyles and Dana Newby. Tragically, he passed away on January 26, 2024, at the age of 39, leaving behind a legacy of love and cherished memories.

Chris was a proud husband to his beloved wife, Shai Skyles. Together, they shared a bond that was unbreakable. He was also a dedicated father to his children: James "Jaden" Skyles, William "Reid" Skyles, Cash Van Zandt, Gage Van Zandt, and Kaden Burke. Nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his family and watching his children grow. He will also be deeply missed by his parents, Mickey Skyles and Dana and James Newby, and his siblings: Ashley Skyles-Kunkowski (Kenny), Nicholas "Kody" Newby, (Cassidy),Amanda Scott (Deke), Steven Newby, and Daniel Newby.

In his professional life, Chris excelled as a contractor in the construction industry. His expertise, dedication, and attention to detail made him highly sought-after in his field. He took great pride in his work and the projects he completed, leaving a lasting impact on those he served.

Outside of work, Chris had a passion for exploring the great outdoors . He found solace in the tranquility of the mountains, particularly in Gatlinburg. He was also an avid car enthusiast, with a special fondness for Hondas and Infinities. Motorcycles held a special place in his heart as well, further fueling his adventurous spirit.

To honor and celebrate Chris' life, his family invites friends and loved ones to attend his visitation on Saturday from 2pm-4pm at the Cleveland Chapel of Companion Funeral Home. Following the visitation, a joyful celebration of his life will take place at 4pm with Don Oliver officiating. It is an opportunity for everyone to come together, share stories, and find comfort in each other's presence.
