Bro. Christian loved to travel. He visited the capitals of the world several times. His visit to Rome was most memorable. Bro. Christian especially cherished the Pieta. In the US he visited almost every capital. He travelled alone.

He was 32 years a math instructor at CBA, Liincroft. Bro. Christian was famous for coordinating regional math contests. He was a scheduling genuis for the courses at CBA. He had a huge following of students who would periodically visit him at De la Salle Hall. Regarding the Internet, Brother Christian would not delete his e-mails from former students–they would jam the computer. Bro. Christian felt his work reflected his dedication as a Brother.
