A great son, brother, friend and soldier
Christian Eduardo Teston, 22 years old, died Saturday March 21, 2015, in Cabot, Arkansas. Christian was born in Portland, Oregon on March 30, 1992. Christian was the son of Eduardo Teston and Gabriela Chavez. Christian was fulfilling one more dream on his list of lifetime accomplishments.
In this case, the accomplishment was serving in the United States Air Force.
Ever since Christian was a child he had a passion for airplanes and video games. At an early age he committed himself in matrimony, with the approval of his parents, to his Xbox. The one which always accompanied him everywhere he went.
Christian always had a wild imagination. At the age of 7, he invented an umbrella belt holder, because he wondered how many people leave their umbrellas on the bus, this was after he had forgotten his umbrella on public transportation.
"The imagination is better than acknowledgement" he used to say. This was what drove him to plan his education in engineering.
At the age of 7, he knew the names of the Airlines and enjoyed seeing war planes take off. This resulted in his dream to be part of the Air Force.
A dream that came true.
Christian was always an exemplary young man. His conduct always contradicted his musical interest. He liked Hard Rock and at the same time, enjoyed Rodrigo and Gabriela, a music duet of classic Flamenco music.
Christian always has been a great example to his brothers and sisters: always making sure that they had a sense of the good and the bad. He lived by example and he demonstrated this by serving the church he attended.
Christian devoured books: especially those that had an emphasis on dragons, and where the trilogy seemed to never end. I have not known anyone like Christian that could play video games and read at the same time.
and eat, and speak on the phone and text too.
Christian was an amazing son. He always helped his two sets of parents get along and understand the importance of "family." He gave great advice to both his parents and his siblings. Christian not only helped with house chores, but would often surprise everyone with their favorite culinary dishes. Christian was a great chef, and he attributed this to his heritance from his grandparents.
Christian also was proud of his Latin roots. He demonstrated this in his style of celebrating holidays. He painted his face with skulls for Halloween. On another occasion, he wore a charro hat to a soccer game of the Mexican selection, so the people sitting behind him could not see. And let us not forget him wearing a sarape with the logo of his favorite team, the Pumas of Unam.
Christian was a great son, a great brother, a great friend, a great soldier, but over all a man of faith. He embraced the Christian faith at an early age., becoming a volunteer at his dominical school at the church where he is remembered for his life.
As a soldier he fills us with pride, not only his loved ones, but also those that had the privilege of working with him.
At this moment his plane Hercules C-130 is station in Afghanistan.
The most notable thing about Christian was his love for the United States. His patriotism has always been apparent since he was a child. Enlisting in the Air Force was one of the happiest days of Christian life. He told me once, "My heart is American, it will always be," and right after he said that, he screamed in English "USA, USA, USA."
We are going to miss you. You will always live. You left a great legacy.
Good work, servant of God.
Rest in Peace.


Un gran hijo, hermano, amigo y soldado.
Christian Eduardo Teston, 22, murió el Sabado 21 de Marzo del 2015 en Cabot, AR. Christian nació en Portland, OR el 30 de Marzo de 1992. Christian era hijo de Eduardo Teston y Gabriela Chavez. Christian se encontraba cumpliendo un sueño mas en su lista de logros en este caso sirviendo en la fuerza Aerea de los Estados Unidos.
Christian desde niño tomo una pasión por los aviones y videojuegos. A muy temprana edad se comprometió en matrimonio con la aprobación de sus padres, con su Inbox. La cual siempre lo acompañaba a donde iba.
Christian desde niño le daba juego a su imaginación. A la edad de 7 años invento un bosquejo de un paraguas en forma de cinto, esto después de haber olvidado su paraguas en el transporte público. "La imaginación es mejor que el conocimiento" solía decir. Esto fue lo que lo llevo a planear su educación en la rama de ingeniería.
A la edad de 7 años sabia los nombres de las aerolíneas y le encantaba ver los aviones de guerra despegar. Lo cual resulto en su sueño de ser parte de la fuerza aérea. Sueño hecho realidad.
Christian fue un muchacho ejemplar. Su conducta siempre contrarrestaba con sus gustos musicales. Le gustaba el rock pesado y a la misma vez Rodrigo y Gabriela, dueto de música clásica tipo flamenco.
Christian siempre fue un gran ejemplo para sus hermanos y hermanas. Cuatro varones y dos hembras. Siempre preocupándose porque estos tuvieran un sentido del bien y el mal. Vivía por ejemplo y eso lo demostró sirviendo a la iglesia a la que asistía.
Christian era un devorador de libros, sobre todo aquellos que le daban un énfasis a los dragones donde las trilogías parecían nunca terminar. No he conocido uno como Christian que pudiera jugar videojuegos y leer a la misma vez. Ah! Y comer. Ah! Y hablar por teléfono. Ah! Y textear.
Como hijo Christian fue ejemplar. Siempre ayudando a que la relación entre el matrimonio de sus padres fuera solida ayudando no solo en las tareas del hogar sino muchas veces sorprendiéndonos con sus platillos favoritos. Christian era un gran cocinero, herencia de su abuela y abuelo, solía decir.
Christian tenía un orgullo por sus raíces latinas que lo demostraba en su estilo de celebrar festividades. Llego a pintarse la cara de calavera para un día de brujas. En otra ocasión llevo su sombrero charro a un partido de la selección Mexicana, donde los de atrás no podían ver. Y esto sin olvidar el uso del sarape con el logo de su equipo favorito, los Pumas de la UNAM.
Christian fue un gran hijo, un gran hermano, un gran amigo y un gran soldado, pero sobre todo un hombre de fe. Abrazo la fe Cristiana a temprana edad llegando incluso a ser voluntario en la escuela dominical de su iglesia donde es recordado por su vida.
Como soldado nos lleno de orgullo no solo a nosotros sus seres queridos sino a todos aquellos que tuvieron la dicha de trabajar con Christian. En estos momentos su avión un Hércules C-130 se encuentra en Afganistán.
Pero si algo resalta en Christian es su amor por los Estados Unidos. Su patriotismo siempre se vio reflejado desde niño. Enlistarse en la fuerza aérea fue uno de los días más felices de Christian. Mi corazón es Americano, siempre lo será, me dijo una vez, para enseguida gritar en ingles, USA, USA, USA.
Te vamos a extrañar. Siempre vivirás. Dejaste un gran legado. Bien hecho siervo del Señor.
Descanse en paz.
