Robert Gordon Bjerg

August 3, 1945 - February 14, 2012


Robert Gordon Bjerg

Robert Gordon Bjerg, 66 of Slocan British Columbia, passed peacefully February 14th, 2012. He was born August 3rd, 1945 in Slocan BC, the son of the late Nick and Ida Bjerg. He grew up hunting and fishing in the Slocan Valley and on February 6th, 1971 married his surviving wife Linda Fredrickson Bjerg. In years following he became a proud father to his daughter Charlene and then his son Robert James (Bo).
He worked for Slocan Forest Products Ltd as a driller and blaster for over 30 years until his retirement. Even in retirement Robert couldn’t slow down. He continued working for KC Drilling and Blasting and working Cominco shutdowns with the Local 911 for CIMS.
Although he kept busy with work you could not keep him away from the local lakes where he was often found teaching his four grandchildren the tools of the trade. The families most cherished moments were the great camping trips with grandma and grandpa to Beaver Lake. His love of hunting was shared with his daughter with whom he spent many hours trekking through the woods. His son Bo inherited his love of fishing and shared many hours trading tales with his father. Robert was a generous person always willing to offer a helping hand or to take a new friend out for a fishing trip.
He is survived by his wife Linda of Slocan BC, daughter and son-in law, Charlene and Ed Strelaeff of Castlegar BC, son Bo of Slocan BC , grandchildren Shianne, Brooklynn, Dylan and Brynn, sister and brother-in-law Louise and Ken Osborn of Dease Lake BC and brother Paul Bjerg of Sorrento BC
A celebration of life will be held in the spring at the Slocan Legion Hall in Slocan BC on May 26th, 2012 from 1pm to 3pm.
