Remembrance Celebration - Oct 20th - Ulf Fagerlund

Ulf (Uffe) Fagerlund - 1925 - 2013


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ulf Fagerlund on September 17, 2013. The family is inviting those who wish to remember and celebrate Uffe to join them at the Scandinavian Centre on October 20, 2013 from 2 pm to 5 pm.

Born in Loviisa, Finland, March 16, 1925, Uffe immigrated to Canada in 1951 with his wife Anita, the same year he had earned a degree in Chemical Engineering from Åbo Academy.  He worked at the Fisheries Research Board of Canada from 1952 until 1987.  Over the years, he and Anita also created a home in North Vancouver and raised 5 children together.

Dedication to his heritage and love of music kept him active in the Canadian Friends of Finland and the Runeberg Chorus during retirement.  Uffe was an early board member of the CFF and the membership secretary since 1993. He was well loved by CFF members and will be greatly missed.
