Hjelsvold, George obit picture

August 29, 1950 – December 21, 2020

It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of George "Big Jordy" Hjelsvold of Morinville on the evening of Monday, December 21, 2020, in Sherwood Park at the age of 70 years.

Jordy is predeceased by his parents Palmer and Ida Marie Hjelsvold and his siblings Dorothy, Shirley, Linda and Myles of Viking, Alberta.

He is survived by his daughter Connie (Rod), his son Jordan (Laurena) and his friend and former wife Kathy of Viking; and by his son Darcy (Crystal), his son Dusty and his friend and former wife Donna of Morinville.

He is survived by his grandchildren Ashlyn, Grace, Jace, Abriella and Paisley, and by his siblings Darlene, Merilynn, Margaret (Marty), Ken, Lois, Rick, Diane and Dale.

Born and raised in Viking, Alberta, Jordy's love of fishing, camping, rodeo, guitar and country music led him back to Viking again and again over the years with him eventually settling down in Alberta Beach.

We wish to extend our gratitude to the doctor, nurses, healthcare aides, maintenance staff, and everyone at Sherwood Care for their kind and compassionate care of Dad.

When family and friends can gather, celebrations of Jordy's life will be held near Edmonton and Viking. Bye for now, Dad, until we meet again.
