Christopher Kierria Feaster

July 28, 1989 ~ August 24, 2017 (age 28)

Christopher Kierria Feaster, age 28 passed on Thursday, August 24, 2017. 

Lovingly known as Chris, Kierra and Feaster, he was a kindhearted soul who loved life and had an infectious smile.  He had a way of making everyone he encountered feel special.  Kierra lifted the spirits of those around him with his presence, words and actions.  He knew how to make you smile, laugh, and cry all at the same time.  Kierra had a love for people and a gift for making people feel loved, special and needed.

Chris graduated from Lee County High School on June 11, 2009.   He had a vibrant personality and was adored by staff and students.  He left an impression everywhere he went.  At his former high school, he was lovingly known as “The Mayor of Southern Lee High School.”

Feaster enjoyed working at various businesses throughout the community, including Pentair, Wilkinson, Chatlee, Knotts Funeral Home, Pilgrim’s Pride and Lee County High School.  Regardless of his position, Feaster always found a way to become friends with his bosses and charm his way into their hearts.  He always found a way to “rub elbow” with those in charge.  No matter his position, he found a way to make his coworkers laugh and feel special.  Feaster made a positive impact everywhere he worked. 

Chris had a love for church that began at an early age at Oak Grove Holiness Church where he attended church with his grandmother.  He developed a love for gospel music which developed into a gift for playing the drums.  Chris was always willing to share his musical talents by lending a hand or a drumstick.  He supported numerous churches, groups, and organizations with his drumming talents and with his charisma as Master of Ceremony.  He would travel near and far, including driving alone to Alabama to fellowship with the people who brought him joy.  Feaster would always find a way to gain backstage access, whether he had a ticket or not.  His flair and charisma always provided “Access Granted.”

He leaves to cherish his memories: a loving mother, Melissa Gail Feaster Capers (Steve) of Sanford and a hard working father, Tommy Stackhouse Jr. (Linda) of Siler City; two brothers, Anthony ”Red”  and Mario Feaster both of Sanford; Adoptive Parents and Family, Eddie and Sandy Yarborough of Sanford, Shane Yarborough of Skagway, AK and  Paige Yarborough of Sanford, NC ; paternal grandparents, Sarah Stackhouse of Raleigh and Tommy Stackhouse Sr. of Sanford; paternal great-grandmother, Betty Stackhouse of Sanford; five aunts, Vanessa Hooker (Kenny). Belinda Barrett (Von) of  Sanford, Pamela Stackhouse and Adrian Stackhouse of Raleigh, Danielle Stackhouse of Kannapolis NC;  Four uncles, Tony Feaster Sr., (Sheilneil) Timothy Feaster (Theresa) and Timmy Stackhouse all of Sanford and Brandon Stackhouse of Raleigh; and a host of nieces, cousins, extended family and friends.

Kierra impacted the lives of every person he met and he will forever be missed.
