David D. Christenson

With profound sadness we announce that David D. Christenson passed away quietly in the early afternoon of December 13, 2017, after a  three-and-a-half-year battle with lung cancer.

Dave and best friend Rich Nevens founded the 80’s pop duo  Stabilizers. The band enjoyed national success which brought them to Los Angeles where Dave married the love of his life and raised two amazing sons. Dave later joined the L.A. professional audio industry enjoying a career which took him to Asia, Australia, Europe and South America and ultimately led him and his family to Seattle, Washington where he spent the remainder of his life.  Until the end, Dave stayed active in the Seattle music scene. He continued to write and record music until just a few days before his passing.

To those who were fortunate enough to know him, Dave will always be remembered as an amazing artist, father, husband, brother, uncle, son and friend who lit up any room he walked into.  A true gentleman with charm and charisma, his sense of humor was infectious and inspirational to the end. A champion for all that is good in this world; filled with boundless generosity, creative brilliance, and an unending enthusiasm for his family, friends, and for life. His was a life well-lived. He will be missed by everyone who knew him and those who did not yet have the privilege will be worse off for having missed the opportunity.

Dave is survived by his father Duane Christenson, brother Douglas Christenson, sister-in-law Vera: their children Kendall, Devin, Lauren and Pierce, his sister Lisa Filipski, brother-in-law Mike: their children Ryan and Jenna, and his wife Robyn Christenson and their sons Ian and Sean.

Memorial services will be held in Seattle and Los Angeles in mid-January and in Erie Pennsylvania later that month.

    I enjoyed his groups music when I was in college. It’s a shame their label did not do much in the way of promotion. My condolences to his family.
