Christopher Sypolt

January 08, 1969 - March 30, 2016


Christopher David Sypolt, dies at age 47.

Chris was born on January 8, 1969 in Pittsburgh. After college, his career moved him to Detroit then onto Seattle where he worked for Copper & Brass Sales and TMX Aerospace before going out on his own and starting his own dot com business with a couple of partners, creating OnlineMetals.com. He then decided to sell his booming business and just recently moved home to Pittsburgh to fully grow his consulting business. Chris had a love for e-commerce sales and service and wanted to share it with the world, or anyone that would listen.

Chris wrote a book, “”Letters to The Big C,”” as a tribute to his dearest friend going through cancer. Shortly thereafter, he took an adventure of a lifetime and traveled around the world in 80 days, and journaled his experiences with his book, “”80 Days No Regrets.””

Chris passed away on March 30, 2016 at Allegheny General Hospital as a result of a sudden and unexpected aneurysm.

Chris leaves behind his mother Alice (Love) Sypolt; sisters Jennifer Adiwinata and Bridget Sypolt; beloved and favorite nephew Sam Adiwinata, and brother-in-law Eddie Adiwinata. In addition, he has many amazing cousins, aunts, and uncles – Uncles Ray Love, Chad Love, Tom Love, and Ron Rosen. – Aunts Karen Love, Kazuko Love, and Mary Ann Love; Cousins John Love II, Faith Love Patterson, Ann Marie Love Cosentino, Nikki Love Kingman, and Lucas “”Spike”” Love. He is preceded in death by his father, David “”Fox”” Sypolt, Aunt Martha Love, and grandparents, Genevieve “”Gammy”” and John Love, and by his best friend, Carla Weitzman.

Friends received on Sunday from 2-4pm and 6-8pm at DEVLIN FUNERAL HOME, INC, 806 Perry Hwy., Ross Twp. Mass of Christian Burial in St. John Neumann Church, Monday at 10 AM. Procession to St Mary’s cemetery to immediately follow.

    Rest in peace, my friend. I loved you from a very special place in my heart and I always will. With all your many accomplishments here on earth you were, first, a writer, and the greatest storyteller I will ever know. Thanks for helping me carry the couch. Thanks for letting me help you carry the couch. And please note, Chris, there is not a single typo in these too-few sentences… and, well, you know the rest.

    Alice, Jennifer, Bridget, Chad, Ray, Tom and family, So sorry to hear from Chad of the passing so young of Christopher "Bushnek." Like Fox before him, Bushnek was an upbeat. lively guy who was fun to be around. I’ll miss him and all those Love family get-togethers I was privileged to attend, with so many laughs and smiles. At the suggestion of you, Alice, and the family, my wife, Debby, and I will make a donation in Christopher’s name to a Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School scholarship fund. With love and prayers, Oey
