Mogens “Leif” Tue Christensen
1928 - 2018
Leif died peacefully September 1st, 2018 with his wife Jan by his side. He was predeceased by his brother and business partner Ole; his first wife Shirley and sisters in Denmark Inger and Gerty.
Sadly missed by his daughters Lila (Larry), Leisa (Kevin), Diane (Kevin), Donna (Bob, deceased), Pamela (Jesper), Penelope (Greg); stepdaughter Heather (Walt); stepson Greg (Michelle); 22 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren and his sister-in-law Nicole.
Leif leaves a large and loving family in Denmark. He immigrated to BC at 21 years of age after learning to log in Sweden. He chopped railway ties with a broad axe, farmed with a horse, and started a sawmill until his younger brother Ole joined him and they started a logging business. They were later joined by their nephew Steffen.
Leif’s many stories entertained family and friends. His outlook on life was so positive it affected everyone who knew him. He will be sadly missed.
