Artist's Description

Christian Anders Swensen was born on May 11th 1990 in Long Beach, California and was a gift sent from Heavenly Father to our home on Mother’s Day, in Cedar City, Utah. He lived a full and vivacious life with great energy, excitement, passion, kindness and love. Christian’s cherished spirit left us Sunday, October 5th while climbing at his favorite spot high above Bloomington St. George.
Christian is a man of the mountains. Through the examples of his older brothers and favorite scout leader Ben Heaton, Christian has developed a great love for the outdoors. He enjoys canyoneering, rock climbing, bouldering, river rafting, hiking, skimboarding & camping. His love for life also includes as he calls it “skating around the planet” (longboarding & skateboarding), his signature “urban-sliding” (skateboarding without wheels), target shooting, paint balling, waterballooning and riding his scooter. He has a great energy for life and is passionate about his interests and his relationships with his family & friends. His bright countenance and huge smile radiates the most when playing with his nephew & “little buddy” Aiden, younger brother Shon-Paul and younger sister Haley. He has always been buddies with his older brother Jens (who is on his mission in Ohio) and older brother Shane and his wife Brie. He loves confiding in others, especially his sister Ember and her husband Cammeron. Christian always loves having his mother make him breakfast no matter what time he wakes up. It is around the dinner table that Christian loves to talk to his Mom and Dad.
Christian genuinely cares about others and loves long visits and talks. We love his big smile and charming, funny personality. Christian is very faithful in his church callings, friendships, responsibilities and goals. If you want something accomplished, you ask him. He received his Eagle Scout Award with the great help of his mentor and friend, Brother James Ottesen.
Christian loves people. He loves talking and hanging out with others and if he sits down to talk with you, he’ll talk for hours. He loves animals and they love him, especially his Chihuahua “Kitty”, Boxer “Cozy” and miniature parrot “Nibbles”.
Christian’s kind, gentle and mild nature is a constant. He is a devoted friend, especially to his best friends Connor, Chris and Alex. Christian is very dedicated to his passions and interests, people and life. He is very trustworthy, responsible, easy-going or “chill”, charismatic, reliable and full of integrity. He honors his priesthood and fulfills his callings with exactness.

We love you Christian
