Judd William Christian (November 17, 1975 — April 1, 2019)

Judd was an avid outdoorsman with a love of camping/skiing/rafting/hiking. He was always dragging his dog and Joan away for adventures. He was born in Grand Junction, CO, and graduated from Fruita Monument High School, much to Mom and Dad’s relief. Judd moved to the Roaring Fork Valley and was a plumber by trade. He spent over 20 years there, and I think most everyone knew him. You never saw him without his beloved dog Maggie or his new dog Ollie. He lived life to the fullest. One date with Joan Neff and he told us he couldn’t believe he met someone that matched him so well, even if she was a cat lover. They had a great few years together. Judd lost his battle with liver disease after a good fight. He is survived by Joan Neff, his soulmate; his dad Thad Christian; mom JoAnne (Don) Williams; sister Jennifer Schreiner (Harold); nieces Karlee Nasalroad (Josh), Kaitlyn and Keira Schreiner; and his dog Ollie. He was a one of kind, loving soul and we miss him dearly. Judd elected to do an organ donation gift, and 23 people will benefit from it.

We will be having a celebration of life on Saturday, April 13th, at 1PM at Enjoy Church, 2825 North Ave. in Grand Junction, CO. It will be in “Judd” style so come prepared to share stories and his jokes. That’s what he wanted. In lieu of flowers we ask that you make donations to Hope Care & Hospice of the Valley, 1901 Grand Ave, Glenwood Springs, CO 81601 or a charity of your choice.
