Christopher Terrell Comer was born in Odessa, Texas on October 30, 1971 to Bessie Comer and Oscar Brady III. Chris was the second of the three Comer boys. After a long friendship, Chris married Josie Alvarado July 8, 2017.

Chris graduated from Odessa’s Permian High School in 1990 and afterwards attended Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas. Chris was a member of the 1988 "Friday Night Lights" team and the 1989 Permian football state and mythical national team. He was chosen as the offensive MVP of the 1989 state football game. He also was a member of the Panther track team. Chris had an opportunity to try out for the Houston Texans but gave up his dream of playing professionally when his first wife was diagnosed with cancer. Chris worked for Allied Barton Security Services as Site Supervisor until he became disabled in 2013. He was a member of the Board of Private Investigative Securities of Texas.

As a child, Chris was an avid reader of comic books. Even as an adult, he enjoyed watching super hero movies and TV shows. He was a music lover and enjoyed watching sports including football, track and basketball. He also took pleasure in experimenting with recipes in the kitchen.

Chris was a dedicated and loving husband and father. He cherished every moment that he spent with his wife and children. Honesty, an easy-going and kind nature best describes Chris. He wasn’t one to complain or pity himself when he encountered life’s challenges and disappointments. He was excited about his two Infiniti project cars. He also enjoyed any opportunity to reconnect with his Permian football teammates.

Chris is preceded in death by his son Christopher Terrell Comer Jr., brother Michael Comer; maternal grandmother Odessa Comer, maternal grandfather Fred "Buddy" Williams; paternal grandmother Reaule Brady, maternal grandfather Oscar Earl Brady Jr. and aunt Linda Hill.

Chris is survived by his wife Josie Alvarado Comer (Houston, TX); daughter Taylor Comer (Houston, TX); son Jason Comer (Houston, TX); mother Bessie Comer Mayse (San Angelo, TX); father Oscar Brady III (Odessa, TX); brothers Charles Comer (San Diego, CA), Jermone Grimes, Taviche Grimes (Odessa, TX), Terrance “Boothie” Goodley (Midland, TX); sisters Shaterika Robinson, Natosha Grimes (Odessa, TX), Erica Aims (Dallas, TX); special cousin Colby Hill (Odessa, TX) ; uncles Eddie Nealy, Jim Comer, John Comer, Dennis Lee Brady, Edward Earl Brady, Lindale Brady, Buford Brady, Billy Earl Brady; aunts Pauline Lee, Loretta Anderson, Brenda Grimes and numerous other relatives and friends.

    Wish I had known Chris better. He had a smile that was reassuring and contagious. You knew right away that you liked him. A great compliment to Chris was when I heard I heard Coach Mike Belew tell other players “You can’t do this, but watch- it’s called the
    COMER CUT!”
    Great player, great kid! I wonder if he knew how much he was loved?
