Obituary of Hall Sveistrup

Hall Sveistrup, born in 1931, kicked off his incredible journey in Lundar, MB, where his childhood mixed hard farm work with a love for family, sports and nature, setting the stage for a truly remarkable life.

As a lifelong educator, Hall embarked on a teaching career at the tender age of 19 in Wapaph,
MB, nurturing and inspiring generations of children over his 35 year tenure. In 1964, Hall married the love of his life Barbara, and together they created a beautiful family of four children, 11 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild, making family first more than just a saying - it was a way of life. Family was the most important cornerstone in dad’s life. He was never happier than when he was surrounded by his family, laughing, singing, playing games and sharing stories. Dad’s love and wisdom will continue to guide and inspire us throughout our lives. “Just do your best” was his guiding principle.

Rivers MB, and briefly Eriksdale and Gimli, became the backdrop to Hal’s community superhero persona. Engaged in everything from Rivers United Church to coaching hockey, he was a proud member of countless clubs and organizations, leaving an impact that echoes through the Riverdale Community and beyond. His love for fishing, hunting, trapping, dancing and gardening painted a vivid canvas of adventures.

He was predeceased by two younger brothers and both parents. His fantastic storytelling will live on through his wife Barbara, daughter Marie (John -Hanna, Grace, Will, Cameron), Hali (Derek-Jessica (Lainey) Jaime), Tara (Darren-Jena (Marseu), Jeremy), and son Rodi (Tarah, Ben, Josh, Piper), siblings Marvin(Mary) and Ann (Barry), and countless friends and relatives. We are so grateful to the army of angels that have supported Dad and our family over these past years. Dr. Mandeep Dhaliwal gave us so many more years with Dad and we are so grateful for his expertise and compassion. Thank you also to Drs. Nowasad and Vermaak, Dad’s home care nurses, his “lab girls”, and the caring staff of Hamiota Health Centre, Carberry
Health Centre, and Riverdale Health Centre, where he passed away peacefully, lovingly surrounded by his wife and four children. 

A Celebration of Hall’s Life, promising laughter, stories, and a heartfelt tribute to a remarkable man who truly made every moment count, will take place at Rivers United, 339 Main St, Rivers, MB on Friday, June 14, 2024 at 2:00 p.m.

“May your spirit soar even as you rest in peace”
