BURT STEEL NYDAHL

January 4, 1934 – August 1, 2017

Burt Steel Nydahl passed away peacefully on August 1, 2017 at the age of 83 years . Burt was born in Sweden and moved to Canada in 1950. After several years of working in the oilfields, logging industry and construction, Burt settled in Crofton where he and his wife, Jo-Ann, raised their four children. Burt was well known in the Cowichan Valley as a builder, property developer and in later years an entrepreneur. Burt was creative, hard working, and driven, seldom taking time to relax. His talent and ingenuity provided his family and neighborhood kids with many hours of fun in his home made pool, on the tire swing, and the toboggan hill he lit up for night use. Burt was a passionate man with a strong interest in politics, history, and classic cars. Burt was predeceased by his father, Sven Nydahl and mother, Margit Vallin. Burt is survived and will be missed by, his wife, Jo-Ann (nee Holgate), three daughters; Christine (Bob), Belinda, Lisa (Rod) and son Erik (Jennifer), three grandchildren, sister May Sutton, as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, August 19 at New Life Baptist Community Church, Tzouhalem Road, Duncan, BC at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Canadian Diabetic Association in memory of Burt Nydahl
