|Chris Vear|| ||Square Dance Caller|| |
- Chris Vear was arguably one of the greatest square dance callers in the world. Before relocating to the Palm Desert, CA area, he called in Wiesbaden, Germany for many years for the Kuntry Kuzins. At it's height, with Chris calling, the Kuntry Kuzins had over 200 members for many years. As the story goes, Palm Desert Greens square dance club was ready to fold when they hired Chris to call for them in 1985.
The Fountain Of Youth Squares in Niland, CA were fortunate to obtain Chris Vear as their resident caller when he and his wife Rita moved to the Fountain Of Youth Spa RV resort from Austin, TX in 1988. The club experienced tremendous growth under Chris.
Chris passed away unexpectedly at the age of 56 on March 28, 1997 of a heart attack.
