Jimmy Christensen

Memorial service will be held at a later date

JIMMY CHRISTENSEN, of Graettinger, Iowa, hit the game winning jumper leading his Makato squad to victory in Sioux Falls January 8th at the age of 81. His proud parents, Warren and Genevive were in the stands and cheering. His brother Jack, sister Jill, Jan and Judy were listening to the game in Estherville and places north and south. His son Scott and his wife Sharilyn knew he’d hit the shot. He told them frequently about his basketball skills. His granddaughter Justice and grandson Gib also put their money on Grandpa Jimmy. After the game, Jimmy was off to meet with Vince Lombardi but promised to tell people that Minnesota was going to get a team someday. See ya on the teebox Dad. Love you.
