Kristopher Tapley Obituary

Kristopher Ray Tapley, 21, born December 19, 2001, passed away at his home on September 21, 2023.

Kristopher graduated Winchester Community High School in 2020. Kristopher was a private person. He loved his family and was a fierce and loyal friend to all. He enjoyed playing his Xbox, listening to music, and drawing.  Kristopher loved to sing and if you had the chance to listen to him you were very lucky.  He never wanted to upset anyone and would never end a conversation without telling you that he loved you.

Kristopher is survived by his mother Crystal (Ackman) Hackler and his father Adam Hackler, Brother Michael Tapley, Sisters Riley Brown, Leya (Hackler) Keedy, Cheyanne Hackler, Maternal Grandmother Melody Ackman (Mike Holland), Nephews Alston Tapley, Jonathan Keedy, Kolby Bousman, Niece Chloe Keedy, his cat, Stinky.  He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his biological father Daniel Tapley, Brother Dauson Peace, Maternal Grandfather Arthur Ackman, and Cousin Taylan Phillips.

A service to celebrate his life will be at 1:00 p.m., on Thursday, September 28, 2023, at the Walker Funeral Home in Winchester, with Pastor Matt Holloway officiating.  Kristopher would have wanted everyone to be casual and come as they are to celebrate his life.  Burial will follow at Fountain Park Cemetery in Winchester
