Doug Christensen passed away the evening of November 3, 2014 surrounded by his family.

Doug was born in Grants, New Mexico to Alfred “Buster” and Brenda Christensen on February 10, 1960. The family traveled to many states during his youngest years as the family followed the mining boom.

In 1971 the family moved to Moab and this was Doug’s home for the remainder of his life. In Moab he and his father shared their lifetime love of cars and motorcycles.

Doug worked on drill rigs and for Rio Algom Mining Corp. until they closed in 1988. Doug worked at Grand Rental Center and then went on to Canyonlands Field Institute as a mechanic. His final job was working for Kevin Clyde at Grand Rental Center. Doug and his beloved rotwiller, Zuess, kept everyone there entertained. Doug with his unmatchable wit and “perspective on life” and Zuess with the position he claimed as his own once Kevin let him thru the front door.

Doug shared his life with some very special women; Mickie Turner, Glenda Byers, Carol Bettie and Rhonda Roundtree. Until the very day he passed, Doug maintained a relationship with them all.

Doug had many talents, poetry, repairing anything that should “move”, loving every animal, and shocking the world with his one-of-a-kind split-second comment (wit).

Doug was preceded in death by his sister Kaye Knight, his twin nephews Matthew and Eric Lawley, and his grandparents Christensen and Gerstner.

He is survived by his parents Alfred “Buster” and Brenda Christensen, sister Kris Lawley (John Paterson), nephews Dustin White, Aaron Lawley, Jesse Knight; aunts Karen Egeland, Arlene Rogers,; uncles Doug (Sue) Gerstner, and many cousins.

A viewing will be held Thursday November 6, 2014 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Spanish Valley Mortuary.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
