In Passing: Egil Oddbjorn Lyngen

Egil Oddbjorn Lyngen passed away on April 7, 2014, a year after being diagnosed with ALS. Egil was born in V. Toten, Norway on October 8, 1946 and immigrated to Canada in 1955.  After finishing high school in Enderby, he studied and graduated from UBC in 1975.  He was devoted to his family and uplifted others with his sense of Norwegian humour and inspired others with his goodness and kind heart.  Egil was an accomplished architect and a member of the AIBC for 36 years.  He volunteered at the Norwegian House Society and the 2010 Winter Olympics.  He was a member of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons and enjoyed sport fishing in Campbell River with his brother Arve.

A funeral mass for Egil was held on April 23, 2014.  Egil’s family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the ALS Society in Egil’s name.
