Christopher Benson Eschenbach


Christopher Benson Eschenbach, 41, passed away on May 7, 2016 at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts after a very courageous battle with liver disease.
He was born in Laconia, NH, the son of Walter B. and Sylvia J. Eschenbach. He graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts from Plymouth State University and worked for Harvard’s American Repertory Theater in the technical department in Cambridge, Mass. for over 15 years.

Chris will be remembered by his family and countless friends for his boundless sense of humor, creativity, curiosity, generous and compassionate nature, and eclectic tastes in food, music, and art. Among his interests were film, theatre, in making music with friends, cooking, birding, gaming, drawing and painting. He also loved biking, hiking in the mountains, geocaching, and rock climbing.

In life, and especially in his illness, he took great comfort from Buddhist studies.

Chris is survived by his significant other,  Sarah J. Fleming of Jamaica Plain, Mass., father Ben Eschenbach of San Leandro, California, his brother Michael Eschenbach of Dammam, Saudi Arabia, his sister Debbie Eschenbach of Laconia, NH, and his long-time feline companion Suzanne, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, and friends.

A time for memorialization and reflection will be held for Chris on Thursday, May 19th,  at the Weir-MacCuish Golden Rule Funeral Home, 144 Salem St, Malden, from 1:00PM to 4:00PM.
