Christian Titera was known for his vibrant, fun-loving spirit and his deep commitment to choose the right. He loved playing basketball and most other sports. He played piano, was artistic, loved to sing, and was famous for swinging the girls around at dances. Even as a little boy, it was not unusual for him to impart nifty little unrelated bites of knowledge that he happened to be thinking about, like how often a snake sheds itís skin, or why the sky looks blue. His older brother, in typical big brother fashion, labeled the intellectual outbursts stupid Christian facts. His family dearly misses the frequent stupid Christian facts. He was in the high school show choir, his church choir, on the high school debate team and was an Eagle Scout. Christian was attending Brigham Young University as a freshman on an academic scholarship when it was discovered that he had a brain tumor. With great determination, he completed the semester as he underwent the maximum recommended level of radiation treatments. Unfortunately, the radiation did not shrink the tumor, but it apparently compromised the vascular system of the brainstem, which a few months later caused a stroke. His indomitable spirit helped overcome paralysis, loss of speech, and other debilitating effects of disease. He gave comfort and inspiration to those who came to comfort him. He died on April 18, 2003, but with this project, his influence lives on.
