Bangor - Christopher Edward Reif, 51, passed away, October 10, 2019.
Born January 18, 1968 in Worcester, Massachusetts, he was the son of Joan Louise Reif and the late Edward Dean Reif, both of Bangor. Chris was a 1986 graduate of Bangor High School, who worked in his family business, Eddie's Flies and Tackle, on Broadway in Bangor.
Chris shared with his family a great love of nature and time spent outdoors. An avid fisherman since childhood, he enjoyed hunting with his late father, walking with his dogs, and as a younger man solo-hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail. In 2002 he met Carol Ann Bushey, the woman with whom he would share his home and his heart for seventeen years, who describes their meeting as "love at first sight." He was an animal lover, always the proud "father" of many dogs, cats, and in recent years, a parrot. He loved music, preferably heavy metal, played loud.
Chris is survived by his mother, Joan; his sister and brother-in-law, Andrea Karla Reif and Christopher Bugge of Raleigh North Carolina; his sister, Erika Kay Reif of Burlington Vermont; his nephew, Max Edward Reif; his soulmate, Carol; her sons, Matt, Josh, and Peter; and her eight grandchildren.
