Chris Takacs Obituary, Death Cause –Christopher Joseph Takacs, who resided in West Whiteland Township, fell dead suddenly while he was sleeping on May 26, 2023. He was 52 years old. His mother Adrianna and his brother Kevin both passed away before him, and only his father Ronald is still alive now. In addition, he leaves behind the woman who was the love of his life, Jill Hunsberger; his cherished aunt and uncle, Kathy and Bruce Ferrentino of Andover, New Jersey; his cousins Ashley and Chris Miller, their boys Zachary and Andrew; and his cousin Tyler Ferrentino of Morristown, New Jersey; all of these people will miss him dearly.
Chris was born in Passaic, New Jersey, but he moved to West Whiteland with his family in 1975. He attended Henderson High School and then Penn State University, where he earned a degree in finance. Prior to joining Cooper University Medical Center’s finance department, Chris worked in the finance department of Penn State University. He was a son and brother who was deeply loved and adored, and as a person, he was sincere and kind. He could turn fleeting talks into long-lasting friendships, and he never turned down an opportunity to assist another person.
He was quite ardent about the things he believed in, and he wasn’t afraid to let other people know how he felt. He also had educated opinions on pretty much everything else, so he could hold his own in a discussion on anything, from politics and global affairs to the relative merits of various types of tofu. He was a very compelling individual. Everyone who ever had the pleasure of his company will remember him fondly for his ever-present grin, wry sense of humor, and keen insights.
As a child, he went on many camping excursions with his family, and later, as an adult, he went on many annual “mens only” camping trips with his father and brother. These experiences ingrained in him a profound love of the outdoors. In 2008, he gave in to his hankering for adventure and finished hiking the entire length of the Appalachian Trail, from Georgia to Maine. The following year, he finished hiking the difficult Pacific Crest Trail, which stretched from Mexico to Canada.
