Please share a memory of Christian to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
WESTPORT, CONN Christian “Chris” Le Brun, 56, of Westport, husband of Oona Robinson, passed away on Saturday, April 6, 2024, at his home in Westport after a 22-month fight against glioblastoma brain cancer. Chris was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Sept. 6, 1967, and is the son of Yves and Ana Le Brun. Chris grew up in Scarsdale and graduated from Scarsdale High School. Tennis was always an important aspect of his life. He played tennis for Scarsdale High School and Lehigh University. He met his wife Oona on the tennis courts of Roosevelt Island in New York City. A voracious competitor at the highest level, Chris had a rich social life built around tennis. During his illness, he spent endless hours watching the Tennis Channel, with a sprinkling of news in between. Chris was known as a stylish and elegant man, tall and slim, always impeccably groomed. On the work front, Chris was that unusual thing — a lawyer that loved being a lawyer. After working in the city for the then-Chadbourne & Parke, Chris joined Orbcomm as general counsel in 2005. Over the years, he played a key strategic role, supporting the company through IPO, multiple satellite launches, 12 acquisitions and a go-private transaction. Chris loved family dinners with his wife and two boys, Nicolas Le Brun and Jacques Le Brun; taking long walks with his wife Oona and their chocolate lab Latte, and playing as much tennis as his busy schedule would allow. Since childhood he was known for taking long, long showers and baking like a lizard in the sun. Over the past 22 months, he especially found joy in the noisy Le Brun family get-togethers and playing endless hours of Canasta with his sister Ceci and his parents. In addition to his wife and two sons, Chris is survived by his parents, Yves and Ana Le Brun; two brothers, Lee and Paul, and a sister, Ceci. Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial service to celebrate Chris’s life on Monday, April 22, at 2 p.m. meeting directly at the Greens Farms Congregational Church, 71 Hillandale Road. Entombment will be held privately by Harding Funeral Home of Westport in Willowbrook Cemetery, 395 Main Street, Westport. To honor Chris’s legacy and love for tennis, we encourage you to support OTA, an organization devoted to uplift children from the slums of Cameroon through tennis and education. Your donation will help provide scholarships for the most promising young talents to the Souza Tennis Academy, keeping Chris’s dream alive.
