Christopher Mar Benediktsson

Christopher Mar Benediktsson, age 66, died May 22, 2017, at his home in Belvedere, Calif., after a long illness.

He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Catharine V. Benediktsson of Belvedere; his son, John M. Benediktsson of Incline Village, Nevada; his daughter, Kate A. Benediktsson of Tiburon, Calif.; four grandchildren; and his brother, Thomas E. Benediktsson of Glen Ridge, N.J.

Chris was born in Cooperstown, N.Y., the son of Benedikt Orn Richard Benediktsson and Phyllis E. Benediktsson. The youngest of four brothers, he lived in varied places, including as a child and young adult, in New York, Texas, Arizona and Washington, then raising his family in Alaska, before moving to California to become long-time resident of Belvedere-Tiburon for over 17 years.

Chris attended University of Washington, Seattle, graduating with a bachelor's degree in microbiology and holding a lifelong passion for both education and the physical sciences. He was a consummate entrepreneur, with business interests that ranged widely, from technology and computer hardware, to construction, business consulting, publishing, facilities management, and fashion. He was a voracious reader, a published author, and had a love for books.

The family held a private ceremony at Sunset View Cemetery in El Cerrito, Calif. They ask in lieu of flowers that you consider making a donation to your local library.
