Christopher Jamal Antwain Wideman, better known by family and friends as “Chris,” passed away peacefully on December 24, 2022 at his home on highway 378 in McCormick, SC.
Chris was born on September 13, 1975 in Greenwood, SC to the late Melvin Olivia Wideman and James Bryant. He was a 1995 graduate of McCormick High School.
At an early age, Chris joined Bethlehem Church of God Holiness in McCormick where Bishop James C. Taylor, Sr. served as Pastor.

Chris was a kindhearted, meek, and humble person who kept to himself. He was a very honest person as well. His favorite line was, “You don’t like the truth!” He was a very helping person and was always willing to lend a hand to assist others who were in need.
