Christopher Frank Miehlisch lost his battle with depression on November 9, 2017, at age 26 in Janesville, Wis. He grew up on a farm near Lanesboro, Minn., surrounded by turkeys, together with his sister who misses him beyond belief. He loved all animals, furry, scaly or feathery and many became part of the family, to his parents bewilderment. He loved to fish, but released everything. Christopher was remarkable in his consideration and kindness to everyone and amazing work ethic. He enjoyed his career as a Research Associate at Pioneer in Janesville, Wis. after completing his degree in biology from UM Duluth. He easily helped others and enjoyed participation on mission trips. However, he could not help himself. His devastated family (parents Eric and Andrea, sister Katarina and fiancé Jesse Amdahl, grandparents Ruth and Helmut, and Oma Franziska, and many others) hopes for a better way in the treatment of depression through further brain and behavior research.

Christopher is being honored in a private memorial service.
