Bill was our neighbor for many years, we shared many good times and have good memories, like the time he assembled an airplane in his driveway then buzzed over the neighborhood when it was completed.
His life revolved around his faith. He always had a smile on his face, had an infectious laugh and was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone. He was a good friend, husband, and father and we will miss him dearly, but know that he is basking in love and joy with his heavenly father.

Bill Christensen was my Sunday school teacher during my adolescent years and provided me with positive lessons that have stuck with me my whole life and helped influence my life in a very valuable way. He will remain in my memory the rest of my life.
He was a wonderful person.
