On November 14, 2020, after a brief illness, Steini Magnusson passed away in the Arborg Hospital. He was 88. Steini was born on January 5, 1932, in the Geysir district.
He was predeceased by his parents, Grimur and Lara (Bergman) Magnusson, his sister Thorun, his brother-in-law Henry Ertl, and nephew Lorne. Steini is survived by his brother John (Anne), nephew Craig, and cousins.
Steini farmed in Geysir for most of his life. He held other jobs as well. Among his employers were North Star Creamery and Glenko-Buchko Enterprises.
Steini was a very sociable man. He knew a lot of people in his area. Steini also had a good sense of humour. Among his interests were playing card games, hunting, fishing, and travel. Steini was very interested in Icelandic culture and he was proud of his Icelandic heritage.
We would like to thank the staff at the Mary Thorarinson Estates, as well as the staff at the Arborg Hospital, who did their best for Steini in his final days.
Cremation has taken place. Donations in Steini's memory can be made to a charity of your choice.
