Feb. 4, 1936 – Jan. 4, 2023
It is with a heavy heart I announce the loss of Chuck Christensen on January 4th, 2023, my beloved husband of 63 years.
He was born on February 4th, 1936, in Hilo, Hawaii, to parents Paul and Ella Christensen. Raised on the big Island of Hawaii, he graduated from Honokaa High School and enlisted in the Army, spending two years in Korea. After returning he attended college in Northern California where he met his wife, Mitzi, and they were married in 1959. He was a devoted Christian who loved God and his fellow man. He was an extremely generous man whose lifelong passion was working with the food banks and similar organizations, serving as President of the Wahkiakum Food Bank for the past seven years. He also loved sailing and spent many years enjoying that adventure.
He is survived by his wife, Mitzi, and a sister, Mary Ann O’Malley. He was preceded in death by a son, Hans Eric Christensen and parents Paul and Ella Christensen. At his request there will be no funeral but a celebration of life may follow at a later date. Dowling Funeral Home of Cathlamet is in charge of arrangements.
