Charles Harold Christopher, a retired Caltrans civil engineer, has died in Hollywood. He was 56.
Christopher died Saturday of cancer, his daughter, Cathy Christopher, said.
Christopher was born June 8, 1934, in Los Angeles. He was graduated from Los Angeles High School in 1952 and earned a bachelor of science degree from USC in 1957. He was hired that year as a civil engineer for Caltrans and worked on freeway projects in Orange County until his retirement last month. From the late 1960s until the mid-1970s, Christopher was a member of the St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church Parents Guild.
