Christopher, Robert D.

12-27-30 to 2-7-16

Bob Christopher passed peacefully surrounded by his family after an acute illness. He loved family gatherings, margaritas, chocolate milkshakes, puzzles, puns and the nighttime skies in Placitas. He was born in Chicago Heights, ILL. Graduated from Huntingburg High School in Indiana and Purdue University. He served in the Army during the Korean War. Bob was a valued employee at Sandia National Laboratories; retiring in 1989 after 37 years of service.

He is survived by his loving family: his wife Marty; brother Ron and wife Carol; son Keith and wife Mary Wright, granddaughters Micaela and husband Scott Knappmiller, and Meara; daughter Kenna and husband Bill O'Connell, granddaughters Alise and Kira. Bob had two step-daughters, Ann Ittner and husband Emilio Verastegui and Amy Ittner. He is also survived by Keith and Kenna's mother Orpah Christopher, as well as Monica Verastegui.

The family wishes to extend special thanks to the Presbyterian Cardiac Critical Care Unit, in particular Katie, Jules, Jon, Bobby and Dr. Wood.

There are no formal services planned following his wishes. A memorial will be held at a later date for family and friends.

Donations can be made to the local PBS station or the Salvation Army.
