Civvies is honored to present the C.K. Edition in honor of Airman Christopher K. Gillebaard a.k.a “CK"
“Don’t Judge Just Love” was CK's motto and shaped the way he lived his life. CK was a vibrant young man full of life, joy, concern for others and a level of empathy that was well beyond his years. He was a natural at putting strangers at ease and he never felt awkward around the unwanted or the unloved. Many stories would follow CK’s passing about how strangers would marvel at how quickly CK made them feel like they had been friends their whole life. CK lived in love and was always willing to share that love. He loved to hug. He always looked for those who had no friends. No one around CK was without a friend. He was selfless and loved to serve the needs of others.
He was quick to own up to his mistakes and take action especially if another person was hurt as a cause of his action. He just gave willingly and sincerely.
CK dreamed of flying. He joined the Air Force, to follow his grandfather’s foot steps and became part of the 509th Squadron“Defenders” which fit CK’s personality. Christopher means “One who carries Christ".
All shirts will be made of pieces of his uniforms, and possibly other Air Force uniforms, while supplies last. 10% of all sales will be donated to honor CK.
