Chris was born on September 19, 1951 to Helen Finn Standard and the late J.M. Standard in Batesville, MS. After high school at South Panola he worked for McMan Candy Company for 10 years. During this time, he fathered two girls and enjoyed every minute of it. He was a remarkable father and man. Several years later he met and married his soulmate in 1986, Claudine Winters. When McMan Candy Company closed, he began carpentry work until he became employed with MDOT. Chris eventually retired from there at the age of 62.

Chris enjoyed watching deer in the backyard, watching race cars race, and spending time in the woods deer hunting. He was also an entrepreneur and took care of several rental properties. Chris was the type of man who was always thinking of others and how he could help them. He was a simple, humble, and Godly man that left a lasting impression on so many.

The family he leaves behind includes his precious wife, Claudine Standard of Sardis, MS; a daughter, Amanda Acton of Slidell, LA; his mother, Helen Standard of Batesville, MS; three sisters, Sherry Wickwire of Delware, Terri Bright of Batesville, MS, and Bonnie Mitchell of Batesville, MS; one brother, Steve Standard of Batesville, MS; and 3 grandchildren, Austin Acton, Jacob Acton, and Kameryn Lowery.

Along with his father, he is preceded in death by one daughter, Christy Ann Acton.
