Mr. Christian was born April 3, 1953 in Porterdale to the late Frank Edward Christian and Betty Sue Wallace Christian.  He was a member of Bethany Presbyterian Church in Covington.  Mr. Christian was a proud American and a devoted husband, father and grandfather.  He truly loved spending time with his grandchildren and would do anything for them.

Mr. Christian also enjoyed playing with Tanner aka “Bug” and never missed a football game at home for Cody, even in his sickness. He would always make an effort to be there to support his grandchildren in everything they did. He was a jokester and always tried to find the positive in any situation. He was an avid Auburn Tigers fan, as he had attended Auburn University upon graduating High School. War Damn Eagle! In addition to his parents, Mr. Christian was preceded in death by a brother, Greg Christian.
