Michael “Coach” Humphrey, 41, passed away July 8, 2019. He was a native of Virginia Beach. Kris worked 25 years alongside his father, Michael Humphrey, at Chesapeake Bay Mechanical Contractors.

He was an avid sports fan, but most importantly, a die-hard fan of the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears and University of North Carolina Tar Heels. He was a well-respected baseball coach and mentor to many kids over the years.

A special thanks to the CBA Rays, Southside Venom, Don Celata, Travis Norvell and Hans Baer; and his son, Tyler Humphrey for allowing and supporting our loved one to do what he loved best, and that’s coaching baseball.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, John and Anne Ring and Gaylon Humphrey.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Crystal; son, Ryne, and his fiancé, Alexis, Tyler, and his girlfriend, Tamera; daughter, Adyson; grandson, Hudson; niece, who was more like a daughter, Kayla; parents, Michael and Emily Humphrey; sisters-in-law, Patricia Whitt, and her fiancé, Kelly Newell, and Beth Goldblatt, and her husband, Logan; as well as many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life service will be held at 10 a.m., Saturday, July 13, at the chapel of New Life Church.
