Don Earl Christensen

Don Earl Christensen, 98 years old, was born on November 14, 1925.

He leaves behind a loving family, 2 daughters, Trudy Barrett (Pat), Minn Wendy Garcia (Eddie) Utah; 4 grandchildren, Allen, Justin, Monique, Rae Ann; 6 great-grandchildren, Ethan, Kayla, Jayli, Cydney, Caydence, Isabella.

Dad was a fighter. He survived WWII (Battle of the Bulge), Cancer, and Covid.

He was an auto mechanic (diesel). He worked for Simplot. He left there to be an independent long haul truck driver. He loved fishing with his brother, Arvon. His yard was always one of the best on the block. He took pride in his flowers, but most of all, he loved his family. He also left behind his brother, Delbert Daye, sisters, Eileen, Betty, and Patricia (Patsy).

He received the most amazing care from Enhabit Home Health and Hospice Nuclear Care Partners.
