March 5, 1941 – October 21, 2020
Passed away unexpectedly at home in Battersea on Wednesday, October 21, 2020. Knud Norgaard at age 79. Dear father of the late Daniel Norgaard, the late Terrence Norgaard, Chris Norgaard (Tracy Kellar) of Harrowsmith, and Nina Norgaard (late Kevin Keech) of Sydenham. Loving grandfather to Kaitlyn Northcott, Soren Widdis, Jack and Mason Norgaard. Dear brother of Elisabeth Hansen (late Willy), the late Ruth de Blanck (late Otto), the late Birte Schioldan (late Verner), Margit Gibson (late Richard), the late Peter Norgaard, twin sister Margrethe Steeves (late Boyd), Jens Norgaard, Ann MacPherson (Brock), Ingrid Schmid (late Frederich), Helen Norgaard and the late Peter Norgaard II. Uncle to many nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed by family, and many close friends that felt like family. He was born in Copenhagen, Denmark and came to Canada in 1951. He worked with his father in his teenage years, attended trade school and became a successful self employed stone mason building beautiful homes and fireplaces for a lifetime. He remembered each house he built with pride and loved to tell stories. Stories from work, travelling with friends or family, hunting and fishing adventures alike. He loved people and was social by nature always welcome to company and someone to share in a Gibson’s or a fabulous Dog Lake fish fry. Sunday lunch with Aalborg and herring sandwich was always a treasured event and love of heritage. A proud Viking. He will be missed dearly. Celebration of life to be scheduled at a later date. Memorial donations can be made to Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters. In care of Hannah Funeral Home, Tamworth
