It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we announce the passing of a special man.
Gottfrid was a beloved husband, brother, uncle and a dear friend. Gottfrid was born in Replot/Vaasa, Finland and came to Canada with his parents and siblings in 1950.
After graduating from high school, he worked for the Royal Bank for a few years. Then he decided to join his parents in their logging business and later he and his brother Floyd formed their own business. Gottfrid loved the ocean, fishing boats and anything related to Marine Traffic.
Left to mourn are his loving wife Sonja, sister Doris, brothers; Floyd (Ann), Kjell (Gail), nephews; Steven (Shelley) Moren, Glenn (Nicole) Moren, Trevor (Cindy) Norrgard, Carl (Kirstin) Norrgard, Eric (Amanda) Norrgard, niece Krystal (Keith) Harrison and special friends Carol Storback and Bill and Carol Hill. Also brother and sister-in-law, in Germany, Berthold and Kathi Zoller. We love you and miss you so much. Until we meet again, dear Gottfrid.
