  • RIP Chris Genkinger (Chris250)

    Thoughts and prayers are with Chris Genkinger's family after hearing of his untimely passing today, August 24th.

    I have no details outside of speculation at this point. If you have information that is solid and verifiable, feel free to post it. Otherwise, keep the conjecture out of this thread.

    I had known Chris from the boards all the way back to the early 2000s and he always seemed like a humble, down to earth guy that was all about family. He would answer questions and help out just about anyone that he could. The bodybuilding community lost a good dude.

      I knew Chris thru Ko Chandetka and the St Charles Powerhouse Gym. In the early to mid 90's he was this young, good-looking kid who I thought eoukd be an IFBB pro. He was already big and had great shape. He was also humble, quiet and seemed pretty shy.

        Didn't know him or of him as I haven't been around the boards for very long. Very sad though when this kind of thing happens. Who cares what the reason for his passing is. Doesn't change the fact there is a grieving family out there.

                Chris trained me up until a couple months ago when I had the opportunity to work with Skip. First of all, I know he looked up to Skip and respected him greatly. He thought it was cool that I was getting the chance to do this. And it's worth noting that his humility was such that you would never know of his successes in bodybuilding (something that can unfortunately be rare in this industry).

                Friday (Aug 28th) was his Celebration of Life service. There was one important, common theme. Chris gave so much of his time and talent to people. I consider myself fortunate to have worked with and learned from Chris. Even more so to call him a friend.

                In the end, Chris250 left his mark in this world and is missed by many.

                    This is so sad. So many of the guys that I grew up with on the boards starting at elite all the way up to now are slowly passing. It is very humbling and makes me worry what it holds for me.

                      Agreed. It impacted me to the point where I pulled out of it all.
