Robert Alan Christensen
Robert Alan Christensen, formerly of Redwood Falls, passed away recently at his home in Osakis. Born in Redwood Falls on Oct. 26, 1953, Bob graduated from Redwood Falls High School in 1971. That is where he met and married his wife Susan Larsen on November 17, 1974. Together they had one child, a daughter. Around that time, he began working at Control Data which would later become Zytec, then Daktonics. After leaving Daktronics, and separating from Susan, he moved to Osakis to be closer to his aging mother. He loved photography, bowling, visiting with friends, and sitting around the table playing cribbage.
Bob is preceded in death by his parents Albert and Arliss Christensen (nee Kissner). He is survived by his sister Debra (Jeremiah) Waugaman of Black Canyon City, AZ, his daughter, Angela (Jamie) Scheitel, 2 grandchildren, Adeline and Calvin Scheitel, and many cousins.
Due to COVID-19, a memorial service will not be held at this time. The family is hoping to have a Celebration of Life sometime in Spring/Summer 2022.
