Obituary of Gordon Christensen

Gordon's Earthly Journey began on July 22, 1930, in Bassano Alberta. His journey ended on November 23, 2022, at the age of 92 after a full and well-lived life.

Gordon married Kathleen Christensen (Bales) on July 22, 1954. Together they had four daughters and one son. Gordon was very proud of Penny (Evan), Nancy (Terry), Joyce (Eugene), Marianne (Rod), and Dale (Tammy); thirteen grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. He is also survived by four brothers, Norman, Leonard, Arthur, and Glen.

Gordon was predeceased by his parents Nis and Lydia; brothers Terry and Edward; great-grandson Boston; and daughter-in-law Tammy.

Gordon did many adventures in his life including road construction, logging, farming, auctioneering, home building, real estate, Town Councillor, and much more. 

One of his proudest accomplishments was being awarded Volunteer of the Year for the Town of Alix when he was in his 80's.

Gordon was an honest kind gentle soul who will rejoice in the Glory of his Maker.
