Dave Christopher Sr - Founder

Dave Christopher began his automotive career in 1963 as a brake mechanic for the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company. He then went on to own and operate a number of service stations in the Akron area between 1967 and 1981. When the opportunity arose for Dave and his wife Linda to open Christopher's Car Care in June of 1982, a long list of loyal clientele had already been established. Many of these same customers still frequent Christopher's Car Care today. Dave retired in 2010, and left the business to his oldest son Dave Jr. He is now trying to stay busy even though he is retired. Dave enjoys golfing, bike riding, and spending time with his dog "Cocoa". He also loves spending time with his family. He and Linda have fourteen grandchildren which they spend time with quite often.
