April 23, 1986 - September 16, 2007
Christopher James Malvetti was a member of the Port Jefferson Fire Department who passed away suddenly in September of 2007 at the age of 21. Christopher was a young man who valued his family first, followed by his care and concern for his friends and his community. He was well known for his willingness to help others and became a special friend to the young and to the elderly who always got to see one of his winning smiles.
Christopher graduated from Port Jefferson High School in June of 2004. Even though he was a student with a learning disability, he graduated as a member of the National Honor Society and as an honored athlete. He was a member of the varsity soccer and track teams, captain of the varsity wrestling team and recipient of awards in all three sports. Chris’ desire to do something meaningful to help others led to his joining the junior company of the PJFD as a high school freshman. When he turned 17 he became a member of Company 5 of the PJFD where he served until his death.
Chris had many fine qualities but if you were to ask those who knew and loved him which qualities they valued, most often you would hear that he was kind, generous and hard working.
