(nee The Great Dane)

We say goodbye to a loving man, husband, father, grand-father, brother and friend, after

a long battle with bladder cancer.

Holger passed away peacefully with his daughters Wendy and Susanne at his side on November 28th, 2010 at Victoria Hospice.

Holger was born in Copenhagen, Denmark on April 1, 1931. He came to Canada in 1955. He loved birds, dogs, reading, telling jokes, building, playing cards, bocci ball, learning new things, but what mattered most was his family.

Survived by his wife Solveig of 53 years; son Finn (in the Philippines); daughters Susanne, Lisbeth, Wendy; grandchildren Kara, Ryan, Shay, Helene, Travis, Paige, Tyler and sister Inge (in Denmark).

Holger will be dearly missed by all who loved and knew him.
