John "Johnny" Christophersen

November 17, 1965 — October 27, 2019

John R. Christophersen, age 53 of Sidney, passed away on Sunday, October 27, 2019 at Metron of Greenville Vent Unit with his parents at his side and his mother holding his hand.

John, or Johnny as everyone knew him was born the son of John and Lillian (Corfixsen) Christophersen. John graduated from Central Montcalm Public Schools in 1985. While his life was difficult from childhood, Johnny never complained or asked ‘why me?’. A year ago the doctors thought Johnny wouldn’t live much longer, but Johnny and God decided to bless his family with one more year. Johnny was a gentle soul who considered everyone a friend. If anyone deserves to go home to be with the Lord, it is Johnny.

Surviving Johnny are his parents, John and Lillian Christophersen of Sidney; his sister, Christine (Rick) Boshoven; two nephews Aric Boshoven and Ben Boshoven all of Indiana and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Johnny was preceded in death by his brother Kurt Christophersen in 2009; his grandparents, John & Irene Christophersen; grandma, Alma Corfixsen and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
