BRYAN KEITH PISTACHIO was born to Gus and Lou Ann (Amundson) Pistachio on May 13, 1965 in Sun Valley, California. He was raised in the San Fernando Valley where he attended school. Upon completion of his education, he moved to Palmdale, California and was employed in construction, framing homes. In 1993, he moved to Sandy Valley, Nevada and continued to work in construction. In 1995, he moved to Witchita Falls, Texas, where he lived until 2004 when he moved to Pipestone, Minnesota. At that time, he began working at S & K Construction until he became employed as a painter at Suzlon in Pipestone. He continued to work there until the plant recently closed.
