[Deseret News, March 30, 2012] ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Harold Parley Christensen ("Chris"), beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, passed away peacefully on March 27, 2012, following a valiant fight with cancer. Born April 16, 1931 in Provo, Utah, to Parley Alma and Ruth Jones Christensen, he grew up the son of an English professor and long-time chairman of BYU's English department from whom he gained a love for books - and for sports. A graduate of BY High, Harold was a star athlete in tennis, football and basketball and was invited to play in the 1949 National East-West All-Star basketball game. He later attended BYU where he graduated with a degree in mathematics and was the starting point guard on BYU's 1951 NIT Championship team.

After graduation he served as an officer in the U.S. Air Force, which would later provide the backdrop for dramatic bed-time stories about KC-97 and B-52 refueling missions. Following his military service he returned to Utah to complete a civil engineering degree at the University of Utah and begin his career as a consulting structural engineer in Salt Lake City for more than 40 years. Over the years his lifelong interest in sports and his ability to reach young men combined in many successful little league coaching ventures that produced successful high school, college and professional athletes, none of whom left his tutelage without learning well that winning always includes good sportsmanship. A faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he served in numerous callings, including as a member of the Melchizedek Priesthood General Board, a counselor in the Salt Lake Foothill Stake presidency, and a worker in the Salt Lake temple. From 1981-1984, he presided over the California Fresno Mission and is beloved to this day by the hundreds of former missionaries who served with him. His service is remembered for his conviction that God answers the earnest prayer and that every individual is a child of God deserving of love and acceptance. His unconditional loving-kindness for all was his hallmark virtue and will remain his greatest legacy. Harold is survived by his wife, Joanne, and their seven children: Lesli (Bruce) Collett, Craig (Shawna), Kim (Joel) Nance, Cindy (Steve) Harline, Kyle (Alyse), Kurt (Heather), Todd (Lyndsay), 28 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

Christensen, 43 years of age, was assistant professor of secondary education at Brigham Young University. All who met him were impressed that he was an extraordinary individual. There is little room for regret when we realize how much life he packed into his few short years on earth.

Words are merely expressions of the mind which seek to fathom the depth of the human soul. The life of Herbert K. Christensen is his real tribute. [BYU Banyan, 1950, page 418.]
