The Urban Buzz sends heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of West Coast promo man and entertainment entrepreneur Chris Pringle, who passed away after a lengthy illness.

Several years ago, Chris had been diagnosed with Type 2 Adult Diabetes and was recently in Final Stage Renal Failure and in need of a kidney transplant. Unfortunately, Chris contracted a fatal viral infection that proceeded to overtake his lungs. After close to a month in the hospital, Chris suffered cardiac arrest and passed away at Loma Linda Hospital in California on June 8.

Everyone who knew and loved Chris Pringle was stunned to learn of his passing…his family is especially heartbroken. Due to circumstances beyond their control, his wife and daughter will have to move from their family home immediately. With all that is going on, they shouldn’t have to worry about another thing.
A Christopher Pringle Memorial Fund has been set up online. If you can contribute, please do so…go to .

Chris did not believe in funerals, so there will be a Celebration of Life for Chris Pringle on Tuesday, June 16, 2015, from 6pm-12midnight PT, at the Bugatta Supper Club, 7174 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. For more information, please email [email protected].

    This was my best friend my mentor and my boss. Chris Pringle was an entertainment magnet and promotional genius. Prior to his passing he knew that he was passing and we spoke daily while he was doing his dialysis as he was getting me ready for his passing we met at RCA and then I saw an article of him in jet magazine and I asked God if I could see him again and 3 weeks later he was at the Paul Wall video shoot where I had a couple of clients placed. Since then we were strong. he had remembered me and my hustle and wanted me to make it. He was an incredible man my friend who never tried the normal coming on to me he saw big pictures.Chris is surely missed in my life. He taught me all I know. I miss him every day and hope his wife and business partner is okay (Anita).
