 Christopher was born in Bamban, Tarlac, Philippines on January 12, 1960 to Cezar Guilas and Adela Diaz Guilas. He was the first born child. He was married to Marienita Constantino on July 18, 1985; they were married for 33 years. They raised two sons, Chrisse Airell and Marc Joseph. Christopher loved his family very much, he worked hard for his family working many jobs throughout his life. One of the jobs was being a processor at Ocean Beauty formerly King Crab/Kodiak, Alaska. Kodiak is where he met his wife and had their two sons. Perry (as he is known by life-long friends) was very friendly, kind-hearted & caring. He was well-loved by all he worked with, especially the elderly women, as he was respectful, enjoyed giving them rides and joking with them. He loved his siblings and stood as their second father when their father was active duty in the US Navy. He truly enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He never missed to give warm greeting to everyone in the family on their birthdays and on special occasions. He always called just to check in and say “I love you”. He was very thoughtful.

 He will be terribly missed! May his soul rest in eternal peace.
