Christopher was born in Oxford, England on July 13, 1896. He was living in St. James, Manitoba as of the time of his enlistment in May of 1915. Christopher received shrapnel wounds to his right thigh and left arm at the Somme in 1916. In December of 1917, he was discharged as his heart trouble had left him medically unfit. He came to the South Peace, possibly in the 1920s or 1930s, and eventually moved into Grande Prairie. Christopher died on February 14, 1975 and was buried in the Grande Prairie cemetery.
