Henning S. Kristiansen, age 30, of Stockholm, passed away on Monday, June 17th, 2019 at his home.
Born in Wayne to Henning Kristiansen and Michelle (Jenkins) Theobald, Henny was a lifelong resident of Stockholm. He worked for Ramapo College as a senior repairer. Henny was a loving brother, son, grandson, and friend. He always wanted to help out those who were down on their luck or in need. He cared deeply for all of the family pets, often putting their needs above his own. He would spend hours in the backyard tossing the ball for the family dogs, sometimes even fetching the ball himself.
Henny was an avid consumer of all things comedy. Henny loved watching stand-up specials and listening to podcasts from his favorite comedians. He had plans to one day try taking the stage himself. Henny always made everyone around him laugh until they held their sides. He could lighten the mood in any situation with his sense of humor. Henny touched every person he ever met. Whether it was for two minutes or for twenty years, he held a place in the hearts of those around him. Henny can rest in the solace of knowing that Katie and Michelle will never forget.
Predeceased by his grandparents, Henning Kristiansen and Beverly Jenkins, Henny is survived by his mother, Michelle Theobald and her husband Jeffrey; father Henning Kristiansen and his wife Christine, all of Stockholm; sister, Michelle Kristiansen of Glenwood; grandparents Chuck Jenkins and Elizabeth Kristiansen; Uncle Bruce and Aunt Linda Kristiansen; Aunt Lisa and Uncle Al Allegrino; Aunt Diane and Uncle John King; and Uncle Chuck and Aunt Theresa Jenkins. Also surviving are his many loving cousins and his four-legged “nephew” Thor.
