David was known as “Dave” to the many people he encountered in his successful working career. He was called “Dad” by his two sons … (“the only kids I know of” when he updated us every Father’s Day to let us know he didn’t get any other cards). He was called “Asshole” by his big brother (a moniker shared between the two) and occasionally by others who knew and loved him best. His mutual friends of Bill W. called him “Silent Dave”, but took note on the occasions when he would share his tales.
Dave shuffled off this mortal coil after a long bout with a bunch of stuff. Timing is everything, and his timing was perfect. He was able to be in his home, with his family and surrounded by everything he enjoyed. He died as he lived, on his terms.
He was proceeded in death by his parents Floyd Jacob Christensen and Frances (Jensen) Christensen as well as his brother David Alan Miller.
He has the afore mentioned two sons, David “Scott” Christensen (Katheryn), of Rocheport, Missouri, Darryl Alan Christensen (Deborah), of St. Charles, Missouri, sister Linda Lee Christensen of Atlanta, Georgia, sister in law Donna Marie Miller of Albuquerque, New Mexico and dear friend and companion Dory Dillon of Morton Grove, Illinois who remain to miss him. In addition, he has numerous family members, business associates and “close personal friends” (also known as celebrities that he recalls encountering in airports) who will hopefully reminisce on their time with him with a smile.
It was his wish to not have any sort of service. His family was directed to “burn me and flush me somewhere.” We are having discussions about a toilet appropriate for such a man, and would welcome ideas from his friends and family.
