Tage Moller Kristensen

On September 8, 2015 at 9:38 am, Tage Moller Kristensen passed away. He died at home, in his favorite recliner in his favorite "Blue" room overlooking the San Francisco Bay. His youngest daughter, Caroline, held his hand as he drew his last breath.
Tage was born in Røjle, Fyn, Denmark.
As an upholsterer by trade, he took his skill to the USA in 1957. His new wife, Astrid, and he upholstered for Danish furniture wholesalers.
In 1959, they opened Copenhagen, House of Danish Furniture in San Francisco, and had their daughter Caroline.
Their business expanded to Sacramento and Fresno.
Tage also bought his father's furniture business on Fyn, plus bought and ran two furniture factories in Denmark.
Fortunately, Tage was in good health for many years. After working hard all his life, he moved in with his youngest daughter, Caroline, and her family, in Tiburon, and lived with her for over ten years. He enjoyed cooking, reading, playing cards and watching "Wheel of Fortune," "Jeopardy" and "Shark Tank." However, most of his joy came from taking care of his youngest grandchild, Olivia Astrid, who will be seven in November. Olivia was definitely responsible for "Morfar's" youthful look and joy for living. He even was in the delivery room when she was born.
Tage left behind four children (Carsten, Anders, Nora and Caroline), one stepchild (Karl), seven grandchildren, and two, almost three, great-grandchildren.
Tage's funeral was on September 19, 2015 at the Mt. Tamalpais Cemetery in San Rafael. Both Danish and English songs were played during the service, the last being Frank Sinatra singing "My Way", which exactly depicted Tage.
After the funeral, there was a wonderful celebration of life party for Tage, the patriarch of the family, at The Spinnaker in Sausalito, with many of his family and friends.
