David Joseph “Joe” Christensen, 45, suddenly passed away on the night of February 23, 2017 at his grandparents’ home where he lived.

Joe was born on May 23, 1971 at Allen Memorial Hospital in Moab to David and Lynn Norton Christensen. He was raised in Moab Utah, and went to college in Logan, Utah. He then moved to Grand Junction, Colorado where he married Michaelle Condit in 1992. They had a daughter Tiffany Marie in 1993. They moved back to Moab, and shortly after divorced. Joe along with Michaelle & Corey Foy raised their daughter. They all worked and lived close. Joe was very passionate about golf, cruises, the Steelers, Tiffany and caring for his grandparents.

Joe loved working at City Market where for 26 years he worked in various management positions. He loved his customers. He retired on January 21, 2017. He retired to take care of his grandparents Wayne & Ramona Norton, just as they did him growing up. He had been on several cruises all over the world. You could almost guarantee that if the Steelers were playing football, he was watching it! He was so excited when his daughter got married and couldn’t wait to someday be a grandpa.

Joe is survived by his mother Lynn (Jim) Mosher, daughter Tiffany (Jeremiah) Windsor, grandparents Wayne & Ramona Norton, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father David, an aunt Sheryl Norton, along with some cousins and grandparents.

A Funeral Service will be held Thursday March 2, 2017 at 1:00 pm at the St. Pius X Catholic Church with a viewing one hour prior to the service at the church. Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery.


Lynn, & Family, My Heart just cries for all of you in the passing of your dear sweet son-Grandson our Joey. He was one sweet young Maan I will miss very much he always treated me like his Grandma and would always give me hugs and a kiss on the cheek when I would ever see him. I loved him like he was my own grandson. He was a wonderful caring young man. May you all be blessed with comfort and know you all did a great job raising him. Love
- Sharyn Wyatt

Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of Joe.
I enjoyed visiting with him in City Market every chance I could. He always had such a happy air about him, never negative.
He was so very supportive when we lost our son a few years ago, and I appreciated it very much.
I am so sorry for your loss.

I lost a special man this week. He came to our home at 12.He was a neighbor boy that needed a family and we were chosen. He and my son Chris were inseparable. He decided to move to Moab,Ut for his High School years, to be closer to other family After Graduation he came back to us while he found a job and schooling. He spent 2+ years living with us and introducing us to TETRUS and MARIO BROS. what a joy to have him back and really bond with him. He soon decided to marry and have a home of his own. Was transferred back to Moab, and we lost the closeness I would go thru and stop to see him when I could. But he still had a part of my heart. We once again reconnected a close bond when my Father passed and he came to the funeral. All the Grandchildren got up to sing and their he was. Singing his heart out with the rest of them. He was special and a good Father to his Daughter. I hope I was part of teaching him that.You will be missed. Joe "Seppe" put your arms around Jack and give him a big Hug! Love You! God Bless You!

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.
