Flint, Christopher Richard age 50, passed away unexpectedly at his home in New York City on January 18, 2022. He is survived by his wife Keisha (Crossbourne); children Amalie and Ashton; parents Richard and Carol; siblings James (Xinyan) of Florida and Laurie (Maxwell) Bremer of Minneapolis; nephews Matthew, Kenny, Samuel and Noah; niece Sara; mother-in-law Carol (Allan) Chan of Orlando; and sister-in-law Vanessa Longshaw of New York City; as well as many other loving family and friends. Preceded in death by brother Thomas, and by grandparents Newell and Leilla Flint, Wilma and Ned Crain.
Chris was born in Minneapolis, MN on January 11, 1972 with his twin sister. A 1990 graduate of Orono High School, he attended George Washington University, earning a BA in political science in 1994. After graduation, Chris spent a year in Spain before moving to New York City to join Credit Suisse Asset Management in the equity derivatives business. While working he completed an Executive MBA from Columbia University. After graduating from Columbia in 2001, he moved to Tokyo to run trading for CSAM. In 2003 he again returned to New York, where he was a founding member of Sansar Capital Management, and later founded Maha Advisors as a Managing Partner. Chris met his loving wife in the Fall of 2005, and he and Keisha were married in Jamaica in 2011. He was a doting and devoted father to their children. Known for his quick wit and clever sense of humor, Chris was also a dedicated member and Elder of First Presbyterian Church in the City of New York and served on the committee to call their current Pastor. He loved the North woods of Wisconsin and traveled there often on hunting trips and to visit family. He had a special connection to Bob Dylan, Kanye West, and Bob Marley. He was known to refer to their lyrics when conventional language wouldn't suffice. An avid runner, he often rose with the sunrise to jog through any city or countryside in which he found himself.

We would like to create a book of memories for Chris' children. If you have a special memory or one that particularly sticks out to you please leave it here or email it to lfbslp@gmail.com.

In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to The Retreat – Alcohol and Drug Recovery Center of Minnesota.
