September 1, 1990 ~ June 7, 2019 (age 28)


Aaron Michael Christianson was born on September 1, 1990 in Las Vegas, and his soul was laid to rest on June 7, 2019 in Brimson after being struck by a deer on his motorcycle.

 He was a lovable, fun-natured, all-around good guy (endearingly known to many as “Ed”) with an extraordinary gift of making every person in the room feel like they mattered. His humor was top-notch; he never took himself––or life––too seriously, a signature part of his charm.

While he was born in the City of Lights, he grew up a country kid with a deep love for the outdoors: he spent his free time fishing with Dad, camping, hunting, and enjoying mud runs in the bog. His love for four-wheeling later developed into a passion for dirt bike racing––Aaron was his happiest on two wheels (#953) with the open road (or Motocross track) ahead, hair blowing in the breeze.

He went to Lake Superior College for Industrial Controls and later landed a position as a Control Room Operator at Specialty Minerals in Superior, WI. His hearty laughter, warm spirit, wide smile, and unmatched wit will live on in our memories.

He is survived by his parents Renee and Michael Christianson, sister Jamie Korf and brother-in-law Steve Korf, girlfriend Marissa Dufault, uncles and aunts Bob and Colleen Christianson (Ben and Luke), Ed and Diane Knaffla (Kristi, Eric, and Jacob), Jeff and Debbie McCloskey (Geoffrey and Alex), Craig Pasket (Eric, Jenny, and Ryan), and Mike McCloskey, and many, many incredible, loving, and caring friends.

Services will start at 3:30pm on Sunday, June 16 at Bay Area Vineyard in Silver Bay. To sign the online guestbook, please visit
