KENNETH DAVID SIGFUSSON It is with great sadness that we announce the accidental passing of David at his home on Thursday, June 16, 2016, at the age of 72. David lived his entire life in the Lundar area. He attended Mary Hill School for two years and lived on the family farm where he enjoyed many adventures with his brother Brian and grandfather Skuli. After moving to town in 1950, he attended Lundar School where his mischievous nature kept life interesting. His love of sports found him playing for the local baseball and hockey team, the Lundar Falcons. In later years, he had great fun coaching both boys' teams, winning MAHA tournaments with each of them. After high school, he joined his Dad and brother in the construction business which became JS Sigfusson and Sons in 1963. With his purchase of farm land, he started up the farming side of the business. In his later working life he was the go to person sharing his extensive knowledge of road building (winter and all season), land clearing, site preparation, low bedding and rock moving expertise. Along the way he made many good friends. His pride of always doing a good job and going the extra mile ensured many satisfied customers throughout the Interlake and beyond. He met his life partner in high school, marrying Patricia Johnson in 1967. They raised their two boys in the Lundar area instilling in them his incredible work ethic. This led to the boys expanding the business with their cousins and branching out to establish their own successful company Sigfusson Northern Ltd. in 1993. He took great joy in having fun with his grandchildren and two generations of nieces and nephews. He will always be remembered for his great sense of humour, good-natured teasing and his kind and generous spirit. Life was always entertaining in his presence. His family, friends and the community will miss him. David leaves in mourning his wife Patricia of 48 years; son Warren, grandson Leif (Cheri); son Wade (Jennifer), grandchildren, Hayley, Abbey and Colby; brother Brian (Hope) their children, Dwayne (Trudi) and Grant (Michele); sister Ellen (Jim) Gleich, their children, Curtis, Kyle, and Vanessa (Joe); in-laws, Tommy (Maureen) Johnson, their sons, Mark (Kristina), Gord (Amanda) and Jamie (Sandra); in-laws, Stephen (Verna) Johnson, their daughters, Krista (Mark) Klatt and Amber (Jason); in-laws, Rose (Bob) Benedictson, their daughters, Tanis (Cam) Scott and Trina (Jarett) Reid and in-law Dot Johnson, her children, Dean (Larissa), Becky (James) along with many grand nieces and nephews.

  • We were very saddened to hear of Dave's passing. Uwe knew Dave from all his help on Itzke River Farm with land excavating and leveling and he always had a smile on his face. He was very easy going and easy to talk to. He had many conversations with Johannes over a cup of coffee probably solving all the worlds problems. "Every day when I walk along my driveway, I remember Dave building the foundation of this road, and I will always be thankful to him and his family." My condolences, Uwe Itzke - Posted by: Uwe & Lisa Itzke (Through business) on: Jun 27, 2016
