Chris Neaves, a student and musician, died of undetermined causes July 21 at his Columbia home. He was 21.

Born David Christopher Neaves in Lewisville, Texas, he moved to Howard County in 2006 after spending three years in Windsor, England, with his family, where he attended the TASIS American School and played rugby. He was a 2010 graduate of Chapelgate Christian Academy in Marriottsville. He spent a year at Clemson University in Clemson, S.C.

At his death, he was a biochemistry student at Howard Community College and worked as a lot attendant at Antwerpen Toyota in Clarksville.

Family members said he enjoyed snow skiing and fly fishing at Copper Mountain, Colo. A guitarist — he owned numerous instruments — and vocalist, he once performed at the Rock and Roll Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Active in a church youth group, he made three trips to Guatemala, where he worked with schoolchildren. He was fluent in Spanish.

Services will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday at Chapelgate Presbyterian Church, 2600 Marriottsville Road in Marriottsville.

Survivors include his parents, David Neaves, chief financial officer for Onemain Financial, and Lori Holman Neaves, a homemaker; a sister, Katie Neaves, all of Ellicott City; his maternal grandparents, Jack and Elizabeth Holman; and his paternal grandmother, Linda Neaves, all of Little Rock, Ark.
