Christopher S. Hoover, 46, of Defiance, passed away on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at ProMedica Toledo Hospital, with his loved ones by his side.
He was born on July 21, 1974 to George and Helen Sue (Humbert) Hoover in Anaheim, California. On September 26, 1998 he married Mandy (Ussery) Hoover, who survives.
Chris was a member of Defiance Church of the Brethren, and Defiance Eagles #372. He worked at Koester Corp. in Napoleon for over 25 years, and recently at Johns Manville in Defiance for three years.
