Grant Ulrich Bergquist
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Grant Ulrich Bergquist on April 8, 2021 at the age of 57. Grant was born on November 27, 1963 in Bow Island, Alberta, the eldest son of Angela Bergquist (nee Fuernkranz) and Ralph Bergquist who left us in 2018. He was a proud father to his daughter Tarah Bergquist, whose mother Deborah French passed away in 2007.
Grant had a wide range of interests. He was passionate about his work as a pipefitter and was a committed member of Canadian Piping Trades Union Local 488. He excelled at sports including skiing, basketball, and baseball, but he also enjoyed academics and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Economics from the University of Alberta. No stranger to hard work, Grant could always be relied on to lend a hand on the family farm or wash dishes after a big holiday meal. In recent years, he loved spending a day at the golf course, taking his daughter to classic rock shows, and drinking a tall, cold glass of milk.
Grant’s deep voice and big laugh will be missed by Angela, Tarah, his sister Linda Bergquist (Philip Zyp), his brother Lester Bergquist (Erika Thorkelson), and his nieces Alana Johnson (Josh Lidster), Hayley Henderson (Forrest Henderson) and Jasmine Zyp and his family and friends all over the world.
Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, a private memorial service will take place on Friday, April 16, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. A link to the livestream will be posted to this obituary on the day of the service.
In Grant’s memory, memorial donations are gratefully accepted to the Brain Care Centre - www.braincarecentre.com
