Christopher Cody Nielsen, 64, of Fresno, CA unexpectedly passed away of natural causes, in his sleep, on December 4th, 2023. Christopher was born to Arlamae and Kenneth Nielsen in Lakewood, CA. He was the 3rd of 4 children, two sons and two daughters. After Christopher graduated from Lakewood High School in 1977, he went on to study business at Long Beach City College and then attended Long Beach State University where he graduated with his bachelors degree. From a very early age, Christopher had a passion for investing in relationships and helping people. Entrepreneurially minded with a heart for community, his deep desire for the wellbeing of others is seen woven throughout his personal life, as well as, in every one of his career endeavors. From working in the respiratory therapy department of Long Beach Community Hospital, to providing job opportunities through his courier business with Pitney Bowes, to creating delivery services that aided the community with fresh groceries, everywhere he worked he created lasting relationships with both coworkers and customers. Though never anticipating it, he found himself working in the automotive industry as a salesperson, which he would continue while also branching out to online sales management for nearly two decades, until his passing. In 1999, Christopher met Traci Augulis while working together at Saddleback Church in Orange County, CA. Christopher and Traci joined their families in matrimony in May of 2000, each with a daughter before having two more. As Christopher enjoyed people, he also enjoyed nature. From drives through the mountains and fishing trips, to searching tide pools at the shore, or simply tending to the foliage at home, Christopher loved being surrounded by life. He loved showing up for his daughters, always making time to cheer them on at their extracurricular activities. Supporting their passions was his passion, wanting them to achieve their goals and encouraging them to dream big. He taught them about the importance of both faith and fun, in the good times and the bad. Christopher was predeceased by his parents Kenneth Kay Nielsen and Aralmae Alice (Cody) Nielsen. He is survived by his wife, Traci (Augulis) Nielsen, daughters Katherine Nielsen, Ashley Nielsen, Cambrie Nielsen, and Rylee Nielsen, siblings Kirsten Slack, Eric Nielsen, and Heidi Robbins, and his family's beloved pets, Evie, Cina, and Suki.
