Christopher Slocum, 55, died in Virginia, Minn., Saturday, Jan. 2, 2021, after ending dialysis therapy in November.
He was born and raised in Norcross, Ga. He moved to Minnesota in 1997 to get away from the Georgia heat. He moved to Eveleth in 2016 and fell in love with the Iron Range. He loved to travel, cook and entertain guests.
Chris is survived by his mother, Ileane Slocum; his brother, Brian Slocum, and his family, all of Georgia. He is also survived by many other Slocum and Twyford relatives; the furry love of his life, Zoie; and lastly, his Anthem family. He felt those were the best people he’s ever worked with.
He was preceded in death by his father, Elliot.
Please, no flowers, but, if you feel the need to do something, make a donation in his name to the Kidney Foundation. Chris lived on his own terms. He also died on his own terms. He is at peace.
