Christopher Ryan Doty, 30, a lifetime resident of the Syracuse area, died Dec. 20, 2022, at home in Syracuse.
“Chris,” as most knew him, was born Sept. 25, 1992, in Elkhart, the son of Douglas Doty and Patsy Miller. He was a graduate of Wawasee High School, competing in soccer and football in his youth. He worked in several local positions after graduating and may be remembered for working at Maple Leaf, Forest River and other RV manufacturers.
More personally, Chris is remembered for his sense of humor, his ability to always smile even in the face of adversity and his love of video games. He was inquisitive too, often reverse engineering things to learn how they worked.
Those who survive with memories to cherish include daughter, Diamantina Ann, North Webster; mother, Patsy Miller, Syracuse; father, Douglas Doty, Thailand; brother, Brian (Sharee) Doty, Syracuse; and grandmother, Jane Doty, Chicago, Ill. He is also survived by a brother-in-law, Sukgwinder “Rambo” Singh and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by sister, Rebecca Singh; paternal grandfather and maternal grandparents.
