Obituaries: Denis Richard Vold

1938 ~ 2022 (age 83)

Denis Vold passed away peacefully, at the age of 83, in his home surrounded by family. Denis was born in Kerrobert on December 5th, 1938, the sixth child of Herman and Edna Vold. Denis grew up on the family farm at Fusilier, Saskatchewan until the family moved to Sibbald, Alberta when he was six years old. Growing up in Sibbald, Denis worked a variety of jobs, even as a youngster, until he settled in a career as a grain buyer for Pioneer Grain. In 1962, Denis met his best friend and soulmate, Sylvia Campbell, who he would marry in April, 1963. Over their 59 year marriage together, Denis and Sylvia had three children, seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren with whom they had many adventures over the years. Denis enjoyed years of fishing, hunting, quadding and snowmobiling with friends and family. He was very entertaining with his spirit for mischief, great storytelling, and contagious laughter. The door was always open for friends, family, a cup of coffee, a drink, or playing cards. There were many, many games of cards. Denis always lent a hand to those who needed it, and he was a bit of a MacGyver ready to solve problems. Denis will be missed by many friends and relatives who love him dearly.

Denis is survived by: his loving wife Sylvia; his three children Denise (Terry) Sauverwald, Rhonda (Steven) Bartlett, and Randy (Janice) Vold; his grandchildren Davin (Andrea) Hertz, Taneya (Jason) Maertens-Poole, Ashley (Justin) MacDonald, Amy (Allan) Taylor, Bailey (Parker) Mason, Cory and Kenzie Vold; great grandchildren Hunter, Axel, Brynlee, Jett, Scotti, Parker and Hendricks. Denis is survived by his siblings Barb Berscht, Phyllis Swanson, and Terry Vold and predeceased by his parents Herman and Edna Vold and his siblings Ron Vold, Bob Vold, Allison Gibson, Diane Howes, and Audrey Mainhood.

At Denis’ request, there will not be a funeral service. Instead, Dad requested a private family gathering to celebrate his life.
