1931 ~ 2011
Valde was born in Munsala, Finland on August 21, 1931. He came to Canada in 1959. After a brief illness he died on November 4, 2011 while at Ridge Meadows Hospital. He leaves behind his wife of 53 years Lise-Britt, daughter Cathy, son Eric (Cheryl), grand-daughters Alysha, Shelby and Chelsea, sister Ragni Nurmi and family, brother Stig Solveig and their family. Valde is also missed by his much loved dog Sawyer. Valde was a long time resident of the community and owned an insulation company here for 30 years. No service at his request, although a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. An event he would have hoped his friends could attend. In lieu of flowers, should you desire, please make a donation to your favorite charity.
