Passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by the love of family, just as he always hoped he would on Tuesday Dec 8, 2020 at the age of 89. Beloved husband of Sally for 62 years. Loving and adored father of Andrew Bjornsson, Lauren Chambers and Ron Bjornsson. Proud grandfather of Josh Chambers(Kalli) , Caleb Chambers (Larissa), Justin Chambers (Jenn) and Paige Chambers. Great grandfather to Gabriella, Zoe, Willow, Levi and Rilynn.
Loved God, his wife and his family in that order. Serving others was his greatest goal and joy in life. Sharing and caring was his gift. His faith was his guidepost for everything in his life. He was a prayer warrior for many.
He graduated top of his 4th year class of Engineering from the University of Manitoba and so won the gold medal. He enjoyed a successful career as a Civil engineer. He served for a total of five years in the Canadian Naval Reserve.
He loved carpentry and stamp collecting. Telling jokes was his signature way of making people feel cared for. He was uniquely selfless in everything he did. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
