It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Kris Slater, a beloved father, son, brother, and friend, who left us too soon on April 19, 2021.
Kris embarked on a remarkable journey in the entertainment industry in 2002, quickly establishing himself as a talented and dedicated performer. Over nearly two decades, Kris’s passion for his work shone brightly, contributing to over 900 productions. His dedication to his craft earned him admiration from colleagues and fans alike, leaving a lasting legacy in the industry.
Beyond the camera lights, Kris was a man of many joys. He cherished moments spent with his family, exploring new places and making memories. In recent months, Kris embraced the beauty of life’s simplest pleasures, traveling with his loved ones and soaking in the warmth of their company. A trip to Florida with his family in early April highlighted his love for adventure and the joy he found in nature’s embrace.
Kris’s journey was one of complexity, marked by personal battles that he faced with courage and determination. While his passing brings sorrow, it also reminds us of the importance of compassion and understanding in the face of life’s challenges.
To those who knew Kris—whether through his work or personal life—his departure leaves a void filled with memories of laughter, creativity, and warmth. As we bid farewell to Kris, we celebrate the light he brought into our lives and the indelible mark he leaves on our hearts.
In keeping with Kris’s spirit of adventure and love for the outdoors, a private memorial service will be held to honor his life and legacy. The family kindly requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to a charity close to Kris’s heart, which supports mental health awareness and assistance.
Kris’s journey through life was a testament to his resilience, talent, and the deep love he had for his family and friends. As we remember Kris, let us hold onto the joy he shared and the moments that made him smile. Rest in peace, Kris Slater. You will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
Male performer Kris Slater started in the industry in 2002 and has starred in more than 900 scenes in that time. He died on April 19, 2021.
He’s spent the last few months with his family traveling around. They were visiting Florida during the first of April. Friends and family members confirm that he passed away last night, although no specific details were given. Some *RUMORS* are that he had a relapse with drinking and died in his sleep due to complications from that. I don’t want to further speculate on this. I’ll just say rest in peace.
