In memory of
Christoph Eberhard Gloekler
Christoph Eberhard Gloekler March 10, 1963 - Nov. 7, 2020 Chris Gloekler was born in Portland, Ore. From an early age, it was obvious Chris was a born Jack-of-all-trades. As a child in Willamette Heights he built forts in Forest Park, made his own firecrackers, wired up countless contraptions and summited Mt. Hood at age 5. Chris' interest in music solidified at Evergreen College where he was one of the original members of the band Young Pioneers. Chris left Evergreen to open 13th Precinct, a music venue, with his brother Friedrich. The venue's impact on local youth outstripped its viability as a business and to this day is remembered fondly by many. Chris' other businesses included Henry's Café on S.E. Clinton, Eco2 and Wildfire Metal & Woodworking. While no stranger to misadventure, Chris' life took him to New York, Saudi Arabia and points in between. He enjoyed exploring the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Chris made sure his niece and nephews saw the joy and wonder in outdoor adventures. Chris loved animals especially his Pugs. He valued his neighbors and used his skills to help them whenever he could. Chris will be remembered for his unassuming charm, colorful language and kindness. Chris is survived by his companion, Amanda Stull; mother, Kalei Luyben; stepfather, Theodore Luyben; father, Eberhard Gloekler and stepmother, Ingeborg Gloekler; brother, Friedrich Gloekler (Ann); niece, Emma Gloekler; sister, Ann-Elise Gloekler Eagleton (Jim); nephews, Fritz and Winch Eagleton; stepbrother, Karlos Petit; and nephew, Aaron Petit.
