Our kind and precious father, grandfather, brother and true friend, Robert Emeron Christensen, age 81, was taken back to our Heavenly Father, April 26, 1994, after a courageous struggle in this life.

Born August 11, 1912, the second of twin boys, in Escalante, Utah, to Lars Christen and Mary Isabelle Spencer Christensen.

Married Lily Johnson on August 15, 1935, in Junction, Utah, later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

Robert was a family man first and always. He loved children, all children, everyone's children. His greatest joy in life were his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He had special attachments to his special little "caregivers", with whom he lived the last years of his life. They will miss him immensely.

Robert was a carpenter and craftsman by trade. He worked for Murray City for 15 years. He served faithfully in the Primary for many years, loving all of the "beautiful" children he served. He was an avid fisherman and hunter, something he loved to do with his family.

Survived by three sons and three daughters and spouses, Fern and Ken Jewkes; Yvonne Williams; John and Carolyn Christensen; Carl and Launa Christensen; Micheal and Janet Christensen; and Milissa and Jack Lyman; 31 grandchildren; and 29 great-grandchildren (whom he dearly loved); six brothers; and a sister. Preceded in death by wife, Lily and son, Robert.

Funeral service Saturday, 11 a.m. at Park Ward, 495 East 5600 So. Friends may call Friday 6-8 p.m. at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 So. State St., and Saturday one hour prior to services at the church. Interment: Murray City Cemetery.
