SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30

  1. Married Paula Rae Blades of Columbia Falls, Montana
  2. Paula was only 17 years old. She is the sister of Christopher’s sister-in-law, Teena Blades, who married his oldest brother, Michael James Nemelka, Jr. Paula desperately wanted out of her house and marriage to Christopher was her way out.  She was head cheerleader and just entering into her Senior Year at High School.
  3. Paula’s family was against the marriage from the beginning. Christopher’s family was supportive, but his father did give him this advice, “She’s too young, Son.”
