Nils Nottveit

December 25, 2019
On Christmas morning, December 25th, Nils left us to celebrate in his heavenly home. He was born in 1925 to Alfred and Karolina Nottveit in Manger, Norway. In 1952 he immigrated to Canada and lived in the Lower Mainland for about 50 years working in the building trade as a carpenter. He also operated a popular rhubarb farm in Matsqui for many years.
Nils was predeceased by two brothers; Asmund Nottveit and Kristen Nottveit, one sister, Milda Borlaug and one grandson David Nottveit. In Norway he is survived by three sisters; Karen Hellberg, Kjellaug Fedje, and Aud Nottveit. In Canada he is survived by his wife of 60 years, Lorraine, two sons, four daughters, four sons-in-law, two daughters-in-law, 25 grandchildren and six great grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
His Memorial Service will be held January 18 at 1 pm at Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church, 32420 – 7th Ave., Mission, BC. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to Camp Luther, World Mission Prayer League, or Canadian Lutheran Bible Institute (CLBI).
