Bradford Michael Christopher, 39, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Lewiston on May 29, 2019.  Born in Tarzana, California on March 31, 1980, he was a son of Michael and Renee Christopher of Alna.  

Bradford grew up in California and attended school in Newbury Park, before moving to Maine and graduating from high school in Wiscasset.  He went on to attend the University of Maine where he studied Social Sciences.

The oldest of two children, he loved fishing and thought nothing of stopping by the side of the road to fish a stream.  He loved his pit bull, Mogie, and was involved with pit bull rescue and was a consultant for reptile behavior and care.

Brad was very productive and creative, and made his own work as the owner / operator of Carin Michaels Lotions and Oils, and later Christopher Wood Floors.  A past member of the Alna Volunteer Fire Department, and was happily helping people every chance he could. He was very warm and charming and always a friend.

He is survived by his spouse, Kathrine Pistel-Todd of Pittston; parents, Michael and Renee; his brother, Todd and wife Stephanie, their two children Alexander and Madison Christopher; grandparents, Michael and Marcia; and will also be missed by many uncles, aunts and cousins.
