Asgar Sigurdson Obituary

Asgar Sveistrup Sigurdson was born to Skapti and Gudrun at their home in Oakview, MB in the RM of Siglunes on May 15, 1939. In 1951, the family moved across the lake and settled at the farm in Lakeland, MB. Many happy memories were made on the farm. It was here that Asgar spent the majority of his days doing what he loved. He truly loved farming, which he was able to do alongside his dad, brother, and later his son. Asgar was very proud of the purebred Herford cattle herd, which he and his brother built up.

On August 18, 1962, Asgar married the love of his life, Doris Johnson. Together, they built a good life, lovingly raising three children, Peggy, Einar, and Jennifer. Asgar was a true friend and good neighbor to many. He willingly would lend a helping hand in the community as he was involved in service clubs including the Elks, 4-H, and the Langruth Lutheran church board. Neighbours may also remember him as the community vet who was willing to make a late-night call to assist in delivering a new calf. Friends may also remember the days when Asgar curled on the Lakeland dream team. Many fun times were had with the hunting crew and on the occasional hunting trip. He was a true gentleman with a great sense of humor.

Asgar was proud of all of his grandkids and he would light up when he was around them. The grandchildren along with his nieces and nephews have shared many of the one-liners and advice that Asgar shared with them.

Asgar was predeceased by his wife Doris, grandson Brad, parents Skapti and Runa, and his siblings Viola (Don), Einar (Margaret), and Evelyn (Ernest), and brothers-in-law, Tommy and Eddie. He also lost his nephews Ian Lasson, Erik Johnson, and Erwin Wild, and niece Ann Kuharski. The family remembers how Asgar was the rock for everyone during these hard times. He is survived by his sister Helga, his children Peggy, Einar (Karen), and Jenny, grandchildren Samantha (Chris), Kristen (Devlin), Erik (Angel), Brock, Alix (Ryan), Maggie (Andy), and Josh (Sam) and his great-grandchildren Carson, Avery, Greyson, Camilla, and Shawn. Also mourning his passing are brother-in-law Harold (Sandy), sister-in-law Edythe, Kelly (Phyllis), Joey (Lydia), and many nieces, nephews, and friends. On February 14th, 2024, Asgar peacefully went to be with his sweetheart, Doris. He will be truly missed.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
