Christopher Lojo of Westfield, NJ passed away suddenly on June 4, 2021 at the age of 62. Born in Elizabeth, NJ to Peter and Ruth (Lindberg) Lojo. Chris grew up in Westfield. He married his high school sweetheart Leah (Grote) and they continued to live in Westfield where they raised their two daughters.
Chris graduated from Westfield HS. He was a cabinet maker, a true craftsman for over 40 years. For the last 29 years Chris was employed with ENGO Co. in South Plainfield.
Chris truly enjoyed the outdoor life. He and his family spent many vacations traveling the country and enjoying the scenery. In recent years Chris loved spending as much time as possible in the Catskills “glamping it” with Leah in their motor home. Chris was a perfectionist especially when building the camp fire whether it be for one person or the many. He treasured spending time with his family, especially with his precious granddaughter. Chris was always there to help a friend in need and made friends everywhere he went.
Chris is survived by his beloved wife Leah of thirty-eight years, their children, Caitlin and Brianne Fahy (Ken) and granddaughter Autumn; his mother Ruth Lojo, his brother Peter Lojo (Gerry), and sisters Karen Sims, Alison Gardner (Joe), and Susan Lojo; along with many nieces, nephews, family members and friends.
