The family wish to thank everyone involved in his care, especially Dr. Clein, Dr. McMillan, Dr. Dickson, Palliative Nurse Barb, the Palliative Homecare team and Unit 3-3 which became his last home. I never dreamed that in my old age, the Lord would make it easy like this. Blessings heaped up and running over, HIS blessings would be an endless list. The LORD has given me so much, and "thank you LORD " seems so empty. I know I could never begin to repay, but to show gratitude means a lot to me. All I can do is to try and tell others, how good and loving the FATHER will be. I encourage them to always walk with HIM, just let JESUS enter into the heart and see.

"A JOB WELL DONE IS ITS OWN REWARD. " - Johan Asbjorn Svorkdal, August 2, 1932 December 27, 2006. Surrounded by family, Johan slipped quietly away in the early hours December 27 at St. Joseph's Hospital in Estevan. Johan, 74, is sadly missed and fondly remembered by his loving wife Evelyn, son Brad, his wife Neena Gupta and daughter Kirsten, son Nelson, his wife Jennifer Scarth, children Josef, Annika, Bjorn and Jakob, sisters Sylvia Kemp and Karen Rundberg and their families. Evelyn's siblings, Carl Jensen (deceased), Thelma Anderson (deceased), Vivian Weber, Lyla Carlsen, Lawrence Jensen, Mae Nielsen, Lloyd Jensen and their families, were a big part of Johan's life, and also miss him deeply. Johan was predeceased by his father Josef and mother Signe. Johan's steadfast commitment to family and community touched everyone. People from all walks of life looked to Johan's open door for a trusted confidante and generous benefactor, as well as a place at his table. All were welcomed. Professionally, Johan was the pharmacist in Stoughton for 37 years, where his customer service and attention to detail were legendary and echoed in everything he did. Johan was also a talented journeyman carpenter and craftsman, as evidenced by his exquisite functional reproductions of vintage furniture, farm machinery and horse drawn wagons. Many facilities and institutions in rural communities exist only through volunteer drive and the initiative of community leaders. Johan was instrumental in establishing and maintaining the White Lake Golf Course and the Stoughton Public Swimming Pool, the Stoughton Community Rink and the founding board of the local Credit Union. He was a tireless supporter of Zion Lutheran Church, local hockey and baseball organizations, the Stoughton public school board and the Stoughton and District Museum. Johan and Evelyn retired to the family farm in Estevan and rapidly immersed themselves in all aspects of church and community life. Their annual threshing bee was Johan and Evelyn's signature event that showcased their teamwork, and paid homage to the spirit and tradition of collective prairie harvest on the farm. A proud Canadian, Johan's Norwegian heritage was never far from the surface and formed the basis of many spirited national debates. A celebration of Johan's life will be held at 5:00 p.m. Saturday December 30 at Trinity Lutheran Church, 738 2nd Street, Estevan. Arrangements are with Boire Funeral Home, Estevan. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
