CHRISTENSEN, CHARLES ROBERT "Charlie"  
On Saturday, July 25, 2015, Charlie Christensen passed on. However brief his life was, it left a lasting impression for all who knew him. Charlie lived life on his terms and viewed the world through the eyes of a comic. No challenge would prevent him from sharing laughter with the people around him. His indomitable spirit and unique flair for humor left an indelible mark on all he encountered. Finding a passion for music at an early age, he studies bass guitar, and was a purveyor of progressive rock music. Mainstream artists held little interest for him. An innovative and creative nature drove his exploration in ever changing musical directions. A career in carpentry further exemplified his artistry in architecture and building design. Examples of his work will endure for a long time to come. But his most significant legacy is what he created in our hearts. His warm smile and mischievous banter endeared him to family and friends alike. We will carry his spirit and memory in our hearts forever. Charlie is survived by his parents, Doug and Eileen Christensen of Madera, CA; his grandmothers, Carol Zack, and Lois Christensen of Fresno, CA; his uncle, Danny Zack; aunt, Angie Zack of Clovis, CA; and his aunt, Wanda Zack of Thousand Oaks, CA. Rest in peace. Remembrances may be sent in Charlie's memory to the Povarello House of Fresno, CA.
