Christopher Francis Corradino, 18, who was fatally injured Monday in a motorcycle accident, was a member of the varsity football team of W. T. Woodson High School in Fairfax and was scheduled to graduate this spring.
Fairfax County police said Mr. Corradino was injured when the motorcycle he was riding went out of control on a curve near his home on Worcester Drive in Fairfax and struck a utility pole. He died at Commonwealth Doctors Hospital.
He was born in Massapequa, N.Y. He and his family later lived in Northfield N.J., before moving to Fairfax in 1973.
Mr. Corradino was an offensive lineman on the W. T. Woodson football team and had participated on the freshman wrestling and baseball teams. He planned to enter Ferrum College in Ferrum, Va., this fall.
In after school hours, he was a cook at the Franklin Store, a restaurant in Fairfax.
Survivors include his parents, Arnold and Helene Corradino, of Fairfax, four brothers, greg, a student at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, and Mike, Ron and Chip, all of Fairfax, and a sister, Mary Lynne, also of Fairfax.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the varsity football team at W. T. Woodson High School in Fairfax.
