Obituary for Christopher Paul Stadelman

Christopher P. Stadelman, 48, of Thomas and South Charleston, died Friday, May 11, 2018 at home, after a four-year battle with colon cancer.
He was born Dec. 12, 1969, in Summit, N.J., the son of Nancy Miller (Tom) and the late Paul M. Stadelman (Helen Oates). He is survived by his incredible wife and partner in life of 18 years, Kelly J. (Cripe) Stadelman; three brothers: Paul Matthew (Lisa) Stadelman of Beckley, Jonathan Scott (Alyssa) Stadelman of Pittsburgh, Philip Marsh Stadelman of Buckhannon; one sister, Rachel Marie Stadelman Joyner (Michael) of Coolville, Ohio; three aunts, and several nephews and nieces, numerous cousins and countless wonderful, supportive friends of #TeamStadelman.
Chris was a graduate of Marshall University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and minor in political science. He was blessed to have three dream jobs over his career: 10 years at the Charleston Daily Mail in a variety of capacities, seven years as co-owner/operator of The Parsons Advocate with his wife, Kelly, and three years in the office of Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, where he served as communications director and chief of staff. He and Kelly also operated a public affairs and research company together.
Chris is a member of the Marshall University Journalism Hall of Fame. He was named a Distinguished West Virginian by Gov. Tomblin and an Honorary Mountaineer Brigadier by Major General James Hoyer.
