  14. Dear relatives in Canada. When I searched for Molvik family in Canada, I found out that Gordon Molvik has passed away in July this year. You have our deepest sympathy after losing a beloved family member. In 1984, Gordon was on a visit here with family in Norway. This we will never forget. He was a quiet and receptive man. Friendly and very nice. We will remember him with respect and thanks. Regards Rune Molvik with family in Norway. Rune is the youngest son of Sivert Molvik, who was a cousin of Gordon Molvik. Sivert Molvik died in 1992.
