RASMUSSEN, Egon Carl

August 25, 1917 – August 6, 2010


Dad passed away suddenly at home at the age of almost 93 on Friday August 6, 2010. He is survived by his two daughters Lissi Bell (David) and Jette Sandeford (Clare) of Courtenay. Grandchildren Kirsten (Chris) of Victoria, Derek (Jocelyn) of Calgary, and great grandchildren Spencer, Jordan, Hanna, and soon to be born Hailey. Also survived by sister Edel and many nieces and nephews in Denmark.


At the age of 40 Dad immigrated with his family to Courtenay where they took up permanent residency. He worked for the city of Courtenay for the remainder of his working life as Superintendent Garden and was instrumental in the Mile of Flowers. He was an avid gardener and pidgeon fancier winning many trophies and ribbons throughout Canada.


Dad will be missed at the Casino which became his second home. Thank you to all the staff for taking such good care of him. He will be fondly remembered as a loving father, grandfather (morfar) and greatgrandfather.


You will be in our hearts forever.


There will be no service at his request.
