Chris Thomas Mosley

Age 16

Northlake, Texas

The future was all planned out

He had soft light brown hair and a sweet smile. He was his sister’s rock.

His friends described him as smart and goofy, someone who always reminded them to do their best in life. He loved playing football. He already had a plan for his future.

He was 16-year-old Christopher Thomas Mosley. On Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018, he was spending time with two of his friends at a house in Northlake, Texas. He was accidentally shot and killed. In one day, a friend was able to raise $10,000 online to cover the funeral costs.
