David Joseph “Joe” Christensen, 45, suddenly passed away on the night of Feb. 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 and 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 Jan. 21, 2017. He retired to take care of his grandparents Wayne and 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 and 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 at 1 p.m. 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.
