Former Cougar Harold Christensen, a starter on the 1951 NIT Championship team and a member of the Cougar Club Hall of Fame, died Tuesday at the age of 80.

Prior to coming to BYU, Christensen was a star for B.Y. High School. He was selected to play in the 1949 High School All-Star Game in Kentucky and was named a high school All-American. At BYU, Christensen helped the Cougars win the 1951 NIT, earned all-conference honors in 1952 and 1953 and played in the 1953 East-West All-Star Game in Kansas City.

Christensen graduated from BYU in 1954 with a degree in mathematics and served as an officer in the U.S. Air Force until 1958. He earned a degree in civil engineering from the University of Utah in 1960 and then worked as a civil engineer in Salt Lake City.

From 1981 to 1984 Christensen served as mission president of the California Fresno LDS Mission. He is survived by his wife Joanne, seven children, 28 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. Three of the couple's sons — Craig, Kurt and Todd — also played basketball at BYU.

Funeral services will be Monday at noon at the Foothill Stake Center, 1933 S. 2100 East.
