Kristopher “Kris” Wesley Drake of Mooresville, N.C., passed away on Saturday April 2, 2022. Kris was born on October 22, 1983, in San Diego, Calif.

He graduated from Mt. Miguel High School in 2001 and moved to North Carolina in 2004. He was a machinist and a welder, and he enjoyed the opportunity to frequently travel for work. He was a member of Mooresville Masonic Lodge #496 in Mooresville and was very proud of his involvement in this brotherhood.

He loved music of all kinds, and playing the guitar was one of his favorite pastimes. He was an animal lover and adored his pets. He also enjoyed spending time outdoors, planting trees and working on his yard. Family and friends were always important, and Kris loved to stay in touch with those both near and far away. He had an infectious smile and fun-loving personality that will be missed by many.
