Marlowe Christensen was born on June 15th 1952 and passed away on June 7th 2022. He died due to respiratory failure at the St. Cloud hospital. The nurses and doctors were very helpful and supportive. They were very informative and caring with all the questions and concerns my family had so thank you to them. Marlowe had been struggling with respiratory issues for several years. On June 6, 2022 he decided to stop any medical intervention, and decided to do comfort care. It was a hard decision to go along with, but the family respected his wishes. Marlowe was a dedicated family man. His wife was his rock and love of his life. Marlowe had two daughters that he loved dearly. He was a big supporter of their goals.
Marlowe was a dedicated fisherman he loved summer and ice fishing, he was always on the water liquid or frozen and loved it. Then he got introduced to deer and bear hunting by his son-in-law. He was really excited when he got his first bear, and was always hoping to get his first deer, but never got one, but he never gave up trying to get a deer. Marlowe hunted and fished until his health made him give it up. His next exciting moment was when he became a grandpa. Kayleigh Aksamit became his fishing buddy as soon as she started to walk. Marlowe enjoyed having his granddaughter with him watching her play with worms and minnow or whatever fish he caught. He loved when she started driving and getting surprise visits from her. He also enjoyed watching his granddaughter at dance shows and competitions and robotics events and tournaments. He also loved the children that called him grandpa (Cora, Phoenix, Raelynn, Katelyn, Katharina). When the Kayleigh and her friends would stop by his house to visit and raid his cupboard that always brighten his day. So, he made sure to keep the food that they liked stocked up for surprise visits from his kids and granddaughter and her friends. Marlowe will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
