Fred Christensen
July 14, 1929 ~ August 9, 2016
In 1967, Fred and Dottie moved to Nampa, Idaho, where Fred found his life's work, becoming owner and CEO of Graybill Wholesale Co.  In Idaho, Fred and his family spent many happy days hiking or backpacking deep in the backcountry, fishing Idaho's bountiful trout streams, cross-country skiing with friends, and hunting for Idaho's astounding variety of small game.
In Nampa, Fred became a pillar of the community.  As a proud Rotarian for more than 50 years, Fred led the Nampa Rotary's efforts to save the City's beautiful Union Pacific passenger depot, which now houses the Canyon County Historical Museum.  Fred also founded and served as President of the Canyon Sunrise Rotary Club, where he always proudly wore the pin marking him as a Paul Harris Fellow.
A memorial service will be held for Fred on August 18 at 4:00 p.m. at the First United Presbyterian Church, 400 Lake Lowell Avenue, Nampa. Fred's ashes will be committed to the Snake River during a reception at the Sunny Slope house, 20805 Lowell Road, on August 19 at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Fred's name to the Idaho Wildlife Federation (, the Rotary Foundation (, or the Canyon County Historical Society.
