Christopher John Weigl, 23

Southborough – Christopher John Weigl, 23, passed away suddenly December 6, 2012 as a result of a tragic accident. A lifelong Massachusetts resident and Boston University graduate student, Christopher was born in Framingham and lived most of his life in Southborough, MA. Christopher is survived by his parents, Bonnie and Andy Weigl, his brother Dustin, and cat Ivy.

Christopher was a passionate photographer, and wanted to combine that with his love of travel, people, writing and story-telling. His warmth, humor, integrity, love of life and friends, and his way of picturing the world will be missed by all who knew him. Ironically Christopher wrote most of his own obituary in September as an initial school assignment: The full version is available at ChesmoreFuneralHome.com.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, December 15, from 3-7:30p.m. at the Chesmore Funeral Home of Holliston, 854 Washington St. (Rt. 16). A memorial service will take place on Sunday, December 16 at 2:00 p.m. at the First Congregational Church in Holliston, MA.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Boston University College of Communications, and designated for the Christopher Weigl Memorial Fund. These funds will create opportunities for passionate photojournalism students to “continue Christopher's work” helping students to discover the wonder of creating pictures that tell a story.
