Christopher Cleary born September 24, 1964 was a loving husband and dedicated father to our twins Jasper and Drew.

He was a moving force for the greater good that stood strong for what he believed in. Never living by what most thought was possible he thought how to make it possible.

He was a fierce advocate for so much in this world.

Besides being a founding member of PFLAG Broomfield, facilitating the very first PFLAG Broomfield Pride in the Park, the very first PFLAG Broomfield Pride motorcade, being on the board of Broomfield Crescent Grange, the board of Out Boulder County,  he was also the photographer for OBC and most other lgtbq+ groups in the Metro region.

He dedicated most of his life and to capturing the beauty of humanity and sharing his pictures of how he saw the world in hopes of opening others eyes to see what they may have missed. Every picture told a story.

His laughter, hugs and smile could lift any spirit and fill a room but he loved through his lens.
