Rodney "Rod" Dean Christenson

March 10, 1956 — September 24, 2018

It is with great sadness that the family of Rodney “Rod” Dean Christenson, a native of Minot, North Dakota, announces his passing after a brief illness on September 24, 2018 at the age of 62.

Rod will be lovingly remembered by his mother, Yvonne Christenson; 3 brothers, Brent, Scott and John; 2 sisters, Nancy (Pete) and Heidi (Brent); and numerous nieces and nephews.

Rod was preceded in death by his father, Clarence “Christy” Christenson.

Rod loved sports of any kind from basketball to horse racing. He spent years helping his father with basketball camps and had a natural ability to teach children the game. He knew all kinds of sports statistics and facts! He loved animals and was lucky enough to help train horses in upstate New York. There were years of family gatherings and times at the camp filled with laughter and fun.

He was one of the kindest souls, never judgmental and always accepting of others.

There will be a private memorial service on October 12, 2018 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Inurnment will take place in Minot, North Dakota at a later date.
