Christopher Owen Roma aged 37 from Thornton, New Hampshire passed away on January 17th, 2024, doing what he loved the most, hiking in the White Mountains. Born on Saturday April 19, 1986, in Shrewsbury, England. Christopher is survived by his parents, Barbara Roma (nee Youlden) and Hayden Christopher Roma, his sister Megan Louise Roma-Sullivan and his son, Solomon Sky Roma.
Christopher attended Thornton Central School and Plymouth High School and graduated. He attended NHTI studying Architectural Engineering. He also graduated from the BMW Motorcycle Academy in Orlando Florida. He worked for a brief time at MAX BMW Motorcycles in North Hampton, NH. Shortly after being hired, Christopher was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, where he broke his neck in two places, suffered severe concussion, broke 7 ribs, shattered his scapula and broke his right arm that required surgery to repair.
After this time, Christopher started down a new path in life. He began hiking and was soon bitten by the hiking bug. He attended the Dhamma Dhara Vispassana Meditation Center in Mass, both as a student and a volunteer where he found peace and the ability to focus your mind on your goals. He was currently employed at Burndy in Lincoln, NH. He also had his own business called NorthEast Trekking Company where he would guide and assist clients on the hiking goals. He has worked at numerous restaurants in the area.
Christopher enjoyed many hobbies and activities, always staying active with basketball, hiking, golf, tennis, ice climbing, rock climbing and kayaking. He was also very artistic and creative. He also had a great eye for photography, evident throughout his journeys.
He had dedicated his time and energy to the charitable cause called Mission Clean Water and was involved in the development and fundraising for the Lincoln Skateboard Park. He was involved with the ADAPT program and advocated to getting youths outside and enjoying the beautiful environment that surrounds them. Christopher was loved by all that knew him. He will be truly missed.
