Just six months before his 40th birthday, Chris sadly succumbed to his battle with cancer.
Chris was married to The Throne actress - Tsholofelo Matshaba the couple got married in 2014 and enjoyed four years of married life together.
The two were known to be head over heels in love and had even appeared on an episode of Top Billing as they shared the many qualities they loved about each other.
Sadly their life together as a married couple was cut short when Chris passed on in 2018 leaving his wife and four children behind.
Never in a million years did I ever think I would be where I am, without you. Never did I think we would go through "til death do us part" only 3 years into our marriage. Never did I think I'd go to sleep alone, without you, when I couldn't sleep, I'd put my head on your chest, and like that, I'd fall right back to sleep. That is love."
Tsholofelo continued to add that it used to be sweet to call her late husband an angel, now the term has become bitter-sweet.
She ended off her letter to her husband by adding that she still loves, respects and admires him forever.
