A memorial service for Chris Habelt, 39, of Oakdale, will be held at 2:30 p.m. July 23 at Modesto Covenant Church, 913 Floyd Ave., Modesto. Chris Habelt died Monday in Oakdale.
Chris was born in Walnut Creek and grew up in South Lake Tahoe and Modesto. As a young man, he started his own concrete business. He became a general contractor and owned Habelt Concrete Construction for several years.
Chris was a wonderful husband, father and son. He was smart, kind and gentle; he would help anyone that needed a hand at any time. He enjoyed
water-skiing, fishing and activities with his boys. Chris loved his family and enjoyed nothing more than spending time with “his boys.” They have many happy memories of times together at Mission Springs.

Tate, all of Oakdale; his mother and step-father, Dori and Charles Lockett of
