Christopher Walter Goodell, age 47, of Pittsfield and formerly of North Adams, passed away at his home on Saturday, July 31, 2021 after a long illness.

He loved being outdoors, especially fishing and hunting, and was a talented woodworker. He would create small Christmas ornaments and enjoyed refinishing furniture. As his illness progressed, Chris found a love of video games.
He comes from a family of animal lovers, especially his Rottweilers over the years, who brought him great joy.
