LAGRANGE – Christopher Joseph Prato, 13, died on August 16, 2020 from injuries sustained in an accident. He was a lifelong resident of the Hudson Valley.

Christopher was born on December 19, 2006 in Peekskill. He was going into the 8th grade at Union Vale Middle School.

Christopher was the beloved son of Jessica Prato, her fiancé Raphael Colon of LaGrange and Christopher Poole, his fiancée Kimberly Penzetta of Mahopac. He was the best most loving “Bro Bro” ever to Aubrey Poole, Amillia Lievers, Damien Poole, Malik Walker, and Raphael Colon, Jr. He is also survived by his grandparents, Patricia and Joseph Prato and Samantha and Steven Poole; his great-grandparents, Rita Tangredi and Louis Nicoletti; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was predeceased by his grandmother, Nancy Danielson.

Christopher loved being outside! It didn’t matter if he was skateboarding or riding his bike, climbing, fishing, hiking, or even playing soccer with his friends. He also liked to play video games and was a fan of Animae. As a gifted artist, he especially enjoyed drawing.

Christopher’s laugh was contagious, and his family and friends will always remember him as the smart but goofy “lil man” who loved to make others smile.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday from 2-4 and 7-9 pm at the McHoul Funeral Home, Inc., 895 Route 82, Hopewell Junction. A funeral service will be held at the funeral home at 7:45pm.
