Bear Model Chris Miklos Dies

​​

Celebrated bear model Chris Miklos passed away of an apparent heart attack in his sleep at his home in Dallas, Texas according to Kenneth In The 212

Mack Sturgis Studio released the following statement:

We here at Mack Sturgis Studio are devastated to have heard the news about Chris's passing. Chris has basically been our Spokesmodel since he first walked into our studio 2 1/2 years ago…immediately inspiring us with his rugged good looks, charming personality, and adventurous willingness to help bring our visions to life. It is my sincere honor to have known him and to have had the opportunity to create the body of work we created together…from a beyond fantasy fireman to an image of masculine beauty encased in a shell of leather. Through Chris I found a direction for my Mack Sturgis vision and with the simplest of gestures he could project a beam of life through the lens of the camera, creating an image immediately representing the essence of male strength and valor. The beauty of his spirit and laugh perfectly mirrored what we all saw in the resulting images.

This image is what we would call our "Classic Chris" pose during a shoot…I could simply say "let's see the Classic Chris"…and out would come the Big Guns…and a fantastic smile every time. Thank you thank you, Chris, for the growth you encouraged in me as an artist and for your enthusiasm to see just what we could come up with each time you visited the studio…and for your patience as I learned my way around studio lighting... I hope it is the light of Heaven in which you now shine!  Bear Hugs,  

Mack

We send our condolences to Chris's family and friends.

I've seen pictures of Chris for years, such a beautiful person, and from what I've read the lucky people that actually knew him confirmed that he was a beautiful person inside and out.  Our world was certainly made more beautiful by him being in it.  So sorry for his friends and family to lose such a sweet guy.

Remember why we are here men!!!!!   Paying tribute to a beautiful soul who is now our Angel Bear.  No more bickering back and forth with needless/pointless/hurtfull comments.  

so i told myself i would never read this garbage and yet like a moth drawn to a flame...here i am.  What brings to disgrace and a very saddened heart is to see messages left by people who never knew him.  Chris DID in fact have heart issues.  Chris was a very dear friend of mine.   One, whom I loved like a brother, looked up to, respected and admired.  None of which came from his modeling career.  

What I dont understand is all of these comments of guys giving their opinion on how my beloved friend left us way to soon.  Whether Chris did drugs, roids or anything else was his business and his alone.  Not a single person commenting here has true knowledge of what happened.  Please everyone, let this man who was loved by many, known of all around the world go with dignity.  I only care that OUR BUBBA will never be able to hug me again.  Was Chris Miklos a celebrity?  Yup.....to everyone else that is, but NEVER in his mind or heart.  For those of us who were lucky and blessed to call him a friend, we didnt see the fame, we saw our goofy loveable meathead who was a true boy at heart trapped in a mans body. So, in ending...please, no more accusations or even opinions on how he passed because you actually do NOT know what you are talking about.

Sorry. I am sure he was a great guy.

I have lived in Venice, CA forever. Its obvious that he was juicing. You dont look like that just by lifting weights.

I have no idea if they contributed in any way to his death, but you are doing a dis-service to others if you know him, but deny steroids did NOT play a role in his death.

Yes, he was asleep and it was a heart attack. But steroids when not taken with a doctors supervision like so many gay men do are fatal

It's baffling to me. He didn't look like a roids user, I didn't know him but he didn't strike me as a drug addict. He definitely was in good shape. And he was young, I wonder what happened to him. It's a shame that something so definite happened to a person that seemed to have so many good things in his life. I always admired his pics on my FB wall and I will definitely miss him. RIP.

Hmmm, I knew chris for about 8 yrs and he was a very nice , caring ,funny always smiling and willing to help anyone in any way he could . Odd how people are always quick to pass judgment , none of us are perfect and never will be. People talk about others to take focus off their own flaws and insecurties, your time will come and you will be exposed of your flaws . what goes around comes around . Rip Bubba you will be missed...

Enough ! A little respect people!

My thoughts are with his friends and family.  It is horrible when someone you love dies - even worse when people offer up any opinions other than shared sadness over the loss suffered by those left behind.  I am embarrassed by a community that preaches against hate - yet says such horrible things.  Until the posting I saw today - I knew nothing of this man - yet I felt sadness for his passing at such a young age and sadness for those left behind.  It was horrible to read all the nastiness that exists in the world - and I know nasty having been in some of the world's most horrible disaster and war zones.  People in those areas living is desperate conditions showed more compassion for fellow human beings!

He was really handsome. Didnt know him but loved his pics in my facebook feed. He was alluring sexy and masculine. A fall heart throb. He was almost my age. God rest his soul, farewell.

WOW! Such hatred and judgment! Someone dies and you post something hateful? What kind of person does that? Chris was a human being with family and friends who loved him. If you posted something negative here you should really seek a therapist because you need help. Never speak ill off the dead!

Definitely drugs, hopefully people will learn and walk away from crystal

So Will, are you now a Dr?  Im gonna assume uve never met Chris?  Kinda wanna know what makes you so sure?  Cause guess what bro, Chris was a very close friend of mine and You might wanna check your sources before you make bold statements.  I can tell you with out a doubt, it was NOT that. 

Can and did you read?? It was in his sleep. Just because you have had a problem with drugs doesn't mean everyone does! 

Keep telling yourself that buddy, you must be a crystal meth addict too

You're a fucking judgemental Aashole.

But you are not. Correct?

You sound like you're high too, hope you don't die in your sleep:)

Why people even bother to comment in here if they have nothing good to say? Someone who was loved by family and friends died. It doesn't matter how. Respect others if you want their respect. I wish his loved ones a little bit of comfort in this sad hour.

My thoughts are this, when a heavyset person dies we don't say that they must of been eating too much. When a skinny person dies we don't say that they must of been on drugs and haven't eaten enough. When a very flamboyant person dies, we don't say that they were so flamboyant they must of had AIDS! 

When someone passes away we should only speak nice things about them or don't say anything at all! The death of  pretty much an icon is not open for a debate. There are people that loved him and are still alive and morning and want to see this article and think positive of this person and all you negative Nelly's ruined it! As a community we need to stop with labels on people and judging them. I don't care if you're married, single, partnered, or a big fat lonely old man, stop judging! Maybe you should try getting in the gym yourself getting off the couch and trying to live the life that you always imagined!

I absolutely cannot believe some of the things you people have said.  Chris was a good friend of mine and was an AMAZING person in countless ways. Some of you have skipped right over that and immediately start spouting your mouths off with incorrect information, trying to pretend as if you are in the know!

You should take a good hard look at yourself and ask what is so fucked up about yourself that you can be so ANONYMOUSLY callous. Shame on you!

You sound surprised, and if you are, shame on you

Why worry now? And why bring it up? Why did he have to be doing something? Many people do things but I don't go around after their dead and talk about them in such a cowardly way. That's what's wrong with the world we live in today. He said she said. Worry about yourself and your life, makes me sick that you go straight to giving him a label. MYOB AND JOHN if you didn't see him do them then just keep your mouths shut. Ohio says a lot and MYOB can't even say who you are, your probably one of those big fat guys that only gets laid by his hand and a magazine.

Chris was a great man and always had kind word for all he came in contact with. Shame on you people who don't even know who he was. Shame shame shame. You only put him down because your not happy with yourself. R.I.P Sexy Chris.

It must have been drugs 95% Of pornstars are common to use meth, ghb, cocaine  

So why because my dear friend whom i will never see again have u chosen to say how he passed?  Are you a Dr?  Are you are you someone who was with him at the time is his passing to know?  Did u even known this great and wonderful human being?  I will not throw stones at you as you have done to him.   I will only say this, your words are meaningless and uneducated.    For those, like myself, that called him a friend, someone whom we loved, know how he passed.  And the horrible part of this, just simply is he is gone.  You have zero knowledge of him, other than what you see in magazines and his FB.  Beyond that, you created your own scenario to mKe yourself feel better.  Please do not do that

Your such an idiot "Nobody", I guess that is why you have to hide your name or you are a closeted queer! If I have my facts correct, Chris was NEVER a porn star had you read the article you would have known that he was a MODEL! Although I did not know him, just from his eyes and smile, you can tell that he was a man with a good heart! Chris is a person with real friends and real family! How can you be so jaded and callous as to automatically assume that he was a tweeker and a porn star! You must be an awful lonely person to automatically pass judgment on someone you know NOTHING about! You are a person that truly needs to seek help! My husband and I will be praying for you hun!

Chris never did any porn you fucking piece of human garbage. I hope someone you love drops dead very soon and then other people talk trash about them where you can hear or read it. 

And your mother must have dropped you on your head.

You sound like an asshole...

My mistake.. it was meant for 'Anonymous' l clicked on the wrong link.

Rip Chris god bless..

Steroids mess with your heart. Too bad for him. 

Anymous - you don't know Chris.. And you're wrong.. Steroids don't mess with your heart but steroids and a shitty diet do.. You don't even have the balls to post a name with your comment.. Coward. 

I think it is safe to assume that he was doing something.

He looks quite young and he has a great body.

You don't just die from a heart attack for no reason.

No, I do not know him, but it isn't normal for someone that looks like that to die from a heart attack.

My first thought went to steroids as well.

I could be absolutely wrong and it could have been from some congenital defect for all we know.

Anyone with half a brain could say that it was a high probability that he did use steroids.

Yea, but if you say this, you're going to be unpopular. Still, you don't seem to be the type of commentor who gives two *&%#@ about pleasing the lowest common denominator.

well-said...

The death of someone handsome who sexually pleased us can be quite a shock. We realize that death plays no favorites, and even the most wonderful person with so much to give can be taken when we least expect it. Be sure to live your life. Don't envy the "muscle hunks" and "bears" that seem to have life itself around their little finger. All are human and pass away. 

Don't envy. Easier said than done. You must be a young muscular hunk who knows absolutely nothing about the amount of pain from being ostracized for being imperfect, and thus constantly rejected. You poor, poor gorgeous hunk...
