Derek ‘Diggler’ Christianson

Derek 'Diggler' Christianson

We are saddened to announce the passing of Derek Christianson.

Derek was taken from us on January 31, 2016. Diggler, as many knew him, was the best damn father, husband and friend! The big man touched so many lives wherever he went. He leaves behind his loving wife Christine, his sons Maverick (12) and Dane (9), sister Corrina (Frank) along with her kids Blake and Brooke, father Nick (Gayle), in laws Lorne and Darlene Cochet and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his mother Lana in 2004.

The logging and motorsports industries will have a huge void now that he is gone.

Come to the Gibraltar Room this Saturday, February 6, 2016 from 1 – 4 pm to share in some laughs, stories and memories of Derek with us.

The family would like to thank everyone for the huge outpouring of support that has been shown since we received this devastating news.
