Little Rock, AR, 1954 - 2010

JOEY RAY CHRISTIAN, age 56, of Little Rock passed away on Nov. 6, 2010 at Hospice Home Care in Little Rock. He was born in Little Rock on July 31, 1954 to Raymond and Marjorie Davis Christian. He was a heavy equipment operator who loved the outdoors, making and fixing things, and had a fascination for weather. He was particularly fond of the time spent working in the Ozark mountains of northwest Arkansas. "Mr. Fix-it" helped family members in many areas.

He is predeceased by his father Raymond. He is survived by his mother Marjorie; two children, Raymond Dean Christian (Bobbi) and Jennifer Christian; grandchild Fallon Christian; his sister Donna (Russ) Davoren of Norman, Okla.; nephew Brother Francis Davoren, OSB, Norcia, Italy; aunt and uncle Martha and Ted Mahaffey; aunt Venvela Ranney of North Little Rock; several cousins, other beloved relatives, and friends.
