With saddened hearts the children of Svend Wilson announce his sudden passing on September 29, 2017 in Salmon Arm, BC. He was 95 years old.
Left to mourn are his children; Gary Wilson (Heather), Roger Wilson (Brenda), Sandra Unger (Courie) and Marla Walker (Harold). He is also survived by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dad was born in Wayne, Alberta to Nels and Ingaborg Wilson. He was one of five sons born to them. Dad met and married the love of his life Martha “Hazel” Lawrence. He and mom were married for 74 years. Mom passed away on June 15 of this year and dad went to join her in heaven just 31/2 months later.
Dad was a grand-master of all things mechanical. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t figure out, build or fix. We will miss his help, wisdom and advice so very much. He was a man’s man but underneath he had the most giving heart. He led a life helping others and never expected anything in return.
Dad was pre-deceased by his loving wife, Hazel, his mom and dad, brother “Big” Ove, brother Ingvard and his wife Stella, brother ‘Little” Ove (Della), brother Jens and his wife Laura, brother-in-law Ralph Hartwick and his wife Inez, brother-in-law Johnny Bullock (Helen) and his son-in-law Courie Unger (Sandra).
A Celebration of Life was held on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at 1 pm at Cedar Heights Hall, 2316 Lakeview Drive, Blind Bay, BC. Flowers gratefully declined.
