Christopher (Chris) C. Rasmussen, passed away on Tuesday, March 27, 2018, at the age of 66.  He was born on July 28, 1951 to Marcellus and Patsy Rasmussen in Oceanside, CA.  He worked as an electrician for many years and retired from Fisk Electric.  As a longtime resident of Deer Park, Texas, he touched many lives.

He loved life and lived it to the fullest.  The love for his family (whether it was a blood relative or a friend) ran very deep and he will be missed by many.  He would go out of his way to help anyone and had a knack of “fixing” things.  He traveled the Country and Canada on his Harleys and met so many people along the way.

Many of his friends called him by his nickname “Sugarfoot”.  Over the past couple of years, he did not travel as much on his motorcycles, but began seeing a different part of the world via cruises.   He also loved to snow ski, usually in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

He is survived by his siblings, Denese Alaniz (Joe) and Cheryl Meyer, and numerous other relatives, including aunt, uncle, nieces, nephews and cousins.  He is preceded in death by his parents, step-father James Snowden, and his brother Mike Rasmussen.

The family will receive friends Thursday, March 29, from 6:00pm until 8:00 pm., at Niday Fairmont Funeral Home in Pasadena. The funeral service will be held Friday, March 30, at 9:00am., also at the funeral home; interment will follow at LaPorte Cemetery.
