BUNDGAARD, Erik Svend Sorensen

August 23, 1943 -Prince Albert, Saskatchewan
April 29, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Erik Bundgaard of Calgary, AB, passed away on Monday, April 29, 2019 at the age of 75 years.

Erik Svend Sorensen Bundgaard and his twin brother were born to Niels and Jenny Bundgaard in Prince Albert, SK on August 23, 1943. He and his three brothers and four sisters were raised on a farm at Polworth, SK. Erik had a long career as a Professional Engineer in the oil and gas industry in Calgary, AB. Following his retirement, he managed the North Hill Curling Club for ten years. Throughout his life, he had a keen interest in the promotion of curling and enjoyed golfing at Redwood Meadows Golf Club and numerous other courses throughout western Canada. His love of curling led him to his volunteer work with the “Under 18” group of curlers which included coaching and instructing. He assisted in the organization and coordination of the annual “Under 18” international curling championships and writing the guiding manuals for the group. He also held positions and actively participated in the Southern Alberta Curling Association. He was an avid golfer in his membership at Redwood Meadows and was active in the Seniors Golfing Club activities. Every year, he and his three brothers planned a “friendly brothers competition” in golfing over the August long weekend.

Erik leaves his siblings to mourn, Jens Bundgaard of Canwood, Niels Bundgaard of Canwood, Anne Bundgaard of Calgary, Elizabeth (Vincent) Kingsbury of Saskatoon, Edith Monkhouse of Maple Ridge, Dora Bundgaard of Calgary, and John (Gisele) Bundgaard of Saskatoon. He also is survived by nieces and nephews, Doug, Keith, Tasha, Kevin, Melanie, Jeremy, and Janaya; and several grand-nieces and a grand-nephew. Erik was predeceased by his parents, Niels and Jenny Bundgaard.

There will be no memorial service in Calgary at his request. There will be a memorial service and interment at a later date at Silent Call Cemetery in Saskatchewan.

In living memory of Erik Bundgaard, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 Elbow Drive SW, Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

  7. Erik Bundgaard was the go-to man for resolving un-resolvable problems. As Steering Committee and founding member of the Optimist U18 International Curling Championships, Erik maintained the Hosting Guide/Operations Manual and righted the ship when occasion demanded. Last week he expressed hope that the complete set of souvenir programs he’d sent to me were of value. Yes, Erik, these treasures are representative of the tremendous value that you added to youth curling development through 16 years of overwhelming success and experiences we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.
