Obituary: Kristopher Eric Christianson

Kristopher Eric Christianson passed away on May 25, 2011. He was 31 years old.

He was born in Redmond, Washington in 1979 to Dale and Tresia Christianson, where he joined his big sister, Nicole. Since he was a little boy, he loved adventure and a little bit of danger. He enjoyed dirt biking, snowmobiling, snowboarding, sky diving, long chats with his Mom and sis, and most of all having fun.

He met his wife, Lesley Bruening, in 2001 in Santa Cruz, Ca. What started out as a road trip ended in a marriage 7 years later in Maui, Hawaii. Together they spent 2 years in Hawaii living out their dreams. They moved back to Tahoe in 2005 to be closer to family and start their careers.

Kristopher was an extremely generous person. He would give you the shirt off his back or protect you against any harm if you were his friend. He was extremely talented in his profession. He took pride in everything he built and everything he built was a work of art. He loved his family (including his dog, Keko) more than anything in the world.

A celebration of his life will be held at the North Tahoe Event Center in Kings Beach, CA. on Sunday June 19th at 12:00pm.
