June 19, 1919 to January 09, 2005

in Maple Ridge, B.C. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and pre- deceased by his wife, Bodil, grandson Lance Aalten, brothers Richardt & Edvin, sisters Rosa, Kristine, & Jenny. He is survived by his daughters Vibeke (Jim) Jose and Inger (George) Visser; his sister, Else (Carl); grandsons Kevin Aalten, Vincent (Kathleen) Aalten, Cary (Michelle) Cruickshank and Troy Cruickshank; great-grandchildren, Cole and Jenna Aalten, Kyle and Tori Cruickshank, and Kassie Aalten and numerous special relatives and friends.

Dad will be remembered for his wonderful zither music which entertained and delighted us all our lives. He was not only a terrific musician and singer, his career as an Instrumentation Design Engineer also brought him immense satisfaction. He has also set a wonderful example for our children and grandchildren who all loved his silly, one-liner jokes. His stroke 3 yrs ago was such a blow to us who loved him. He really has earned his rest now.

The family would like to give special thanks to the caregivers at Creekside Manor and T.C.U.

A celebration of his life will be held at the Danish Lutheran Church, 6010 Kincaid Street, Burnaby, B.C. at 1:00 pm, Friday, January 28, 2005.
