We sadly announce Kjell’s, passing on June 12, 2014 in Cranbrook.
Kjell came to the Pioneer Lodge in Cranbrook on December 1, 1998. Prior to that he lived at Hermosa House in Cranbrook. He was born in Norway he came to Canada as a child and lived in several BC locations before coming to Cranbrook in the mid 80s.
Kjell was a very friendly man who liked people. He had a very good sense of humour and an infectious laugh. Kjell liked to walk and would go great distances. In his younger days would often spend hours out walking while sight seeing and people watching. He was adventurous and delightfully unpredictable, loved music and was a very good dancer.
He was involved with REALM and the Community Living Centre, participated with Special Olympics and was a wicked Bocce player. Kjell was determined and preserved with his dreams and his desire to travel.
He leaves behind many friends in Cranbrook as well as his two sisters Linda and Irene.
A memorial service for Kjell will be held on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 at McPherson Funeral Home in Cranbrook at 10:00 am with a reception to follow.
