Christopher Ryan Sims

Christopher Ryan Sims, 43, of Charleston, SC, passed away on Tuesday, February 21, 2023. 

Born on September 8, 1979, in Charleston, SC, he was the son of Gayle Missel Sims and Wayne Vern Sims. 

Chris was a very hard-working man who loved his children and Ohio State football.

His smile and dedication will be missed. 

Chris is survived by his children, Eric Christopher and Emma Grace Sims; his parents, Gayle and Wayne Sims; his siblings, Hope Guffy and Brett Sims; and his former wife, Emily Bischoff.
