Christopher Caleb Tatman

September 21, 1980~December 16, 2023

Christopher Caleb Tatman died at the young age of 43 years on December 16, 2023 in his home. He died from an Epilepsy seizure that he never recovered from. He struggled with seizures all his life and God finally decided it was time to bring him home.

Christopher was born in Baltimore, Maryland on September 21, 1980 to Thomas and Glenda Tatman who have been married for 46 years.

Christopher is survived by his parents Thomas and Glenda Tatman, two brothers Andrew Wayne Tatman and David Lee Tatman who is married to Amanda Orr Tatman and their two sons Carson and Sawyer. Christopher loved his nephews like they were his own.

Christopher spent the first half of his life in Bradenton, Florida where he graduated from Southeast high school in 2000 and Manatee Technical School studying marine mechanics. The second half of his life he lived here in Crestview Florida. He had four true loves in his life which were boating, his family, church (First Methodist of Crestview) singing in the choir and his job (Publix Customer Service) where he worked the last 11 years.

Christopher will be truly missed by many for his kindness to everyone and willingness to help everyone who asked.

The family would like in lieu of flowers or any other gifts, donations to be made to our church in his name at

There will be a memorial/celebration of life on January 13, 2024 at 2:00 pm, location will be the main sanctuary of the First Methodist Church and all are welcome.

Glenda, Tom, and Family,

I am so sorry for the loss of Chris. I can remember like yesterday when your family moved into Braden Woods with your 3 boys. They fit in from day one with all the other boys.

Chris, being the oldest, sometimes had to intervene with the youngsters!

My condolences,
Ed & Family

Tom, Glenda, and the rest of the Tatman family,
Rosemarie and I are shocked and sadden to hear about Chris’ sudden passing. We have no words that will ease the pain you are feeling. We pray that God’s peace, which surpasses all understanding will be with you (Philippians 4:7).
Remember, we are only a phone call away.
