Christopher Bryan Bofto died September 22, 2023 (Age 59) surrounded by family. He was born to Kenneth Bofto and Sibley Redding in Great Falls, Montana on June 23, 1964. In life, Christopher was known as an avid tinkerer, explorer, and all around curiosity driven problem solver. He was known at a young age to get in trouble by taking apart his toys, accessories and other belongings simply to understand how they worked. His curiosity would follow him to the outdoors, the natural beauty of which he was a great fan of for his entire life. He would recount summers in Montana with his brothers, eating entire pizzas in one serving and admiring the wonders of his family ranch around him. His interests would also include television and movies, which included many family nights watching The Simpsons, Mythbusters, and all-ages films such as Elf and The Incredibles. He will be remembered for sharing his interests with his loved ones, especially his four sons, who fondly bonded with him over emerging technology, pop culture, music, nature, photography, and the roaring laughter from quality time with family. He would be especially remembered for his commitment to love and service, consistently walking on foot in any weather condition for his wife and family, ready to solve problems with his much-loved personal tools such as flashlights, magnets, yellow scissors, laser pointers, and reusable shopping bags.
He is survived by Catherine, his wife of 39 years, his four sons Andrew Bofto, Adam Bofto, Alexander Bofto, and Connor Bofto, as well as his brothers Randolph Bofto and Curtis Bofto and sister-in-law Ulee Bofto. He is preceded in death by his father Kenneth Bofto and mother Sibley Redding.
Christopher’s life will be celebrated in a memorial service on October 7, 2023 at 9:30am at Bible Hope Church, 6112 Guildford Rd, Columbia MD.
