Chris Bird, 62, who was dearly loved by all that knew him went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, November 13, 2020.

Chris was born on July 24, 1958 in Savannah, GA to George and Tommie Bird. Taking after his father’s influence, he became a successful entrepreneur in Savannah.

He taught his three sons how to be a gentleman, the meaning of loving with all your heart, and how to be a loving husband and father.

He was preceded in death by his precious mother, Mildred (Tommie) Bird.

Chris is survived by his three sons, Nick Bird, Chad Bird (Katie), and Christopher Bird; precious granddaughter that has his same heart, Ava Grace Bird; father George Byron Bird; two brothers, Thomas Bird (Paulette) and Roger Bird (Janet); special family members, Cecilia Bird, Joey Dykes (Vickie), Kenny Dykes (Marica), Debbie Bacon, Patty Maxwell (Phil); along with many beloved nieces and nephews.
