Obituary | Dale Christianson

Dale Christianson, age 71½ years, died of pancreatic cancer at his home in Golden Valley on June 1, 2022. Formerly a life-long resident of Wisconsin, Dale moved to the Kingman area in 2003 and began employment with ABF Freight (2003-2014). In August of 2014, Dale had a major stroke, ending a 45-year truck driving career at the age of 63. In 2013 Dale bought a home in Golden Valley, making friends with many of his Walnut Creek Estate neighbors. Dale drove cars for a couple dealerships in his retirement, when he was not off traveling or camping or on a motorcycle adventure! Dale was a hard­working, fun-loving, patient and caring man, who was ever-ready to help a friend. He enjoyed people and listening to their stories.
