BOGSTAD, Finn Olaf - After a brave and courageous battle with lung cancer, our gentle Finn began his peaceful journey to Valhalla on November 13th at the youthful age of 76, ever the strong and confident Viking. His soul mate and wife Janet (Eves) and her son Kirk Hampton of BC were by his side at the time of his passing in their home in Deseronto. He moved on with all the dignity and grace for which he was so well known. He was an inspiration to us all in the way in which he embraced his final challenge so full of faith and love. Finn was the cherished son of the late Randi and Olaf Bogstad, dear grandson and nephew to his late Norwegian relations and also pre- deceased by his loving step-daughter Ginny Black of Vancouver, BC and dear mother-in- law Margaret Eves of Kingston. He is survived by his wonderful sons Eric and Chris Bogstad, Terrence Ly and Kirk Hampton who have been a continued and loving support to their D.O.E.L.D., Chris & Eric's incredible mother Pat Bogstad and her mother Phyllis Gallinger of Providence Manor; his little sisters Elsie (Sidor) of Cobden, Sonja Bogstad of Kingston and all their devoted children and their children whom Finn adored and treasured as he did Jan's family as well. He leaves so many extended family fans, friends and admirers on both sides of the family and both sides of the continent of nieces, nephews, in-laws, cousins in Norway and Maine (dear Doris Jorgensen and niece Sonja Guite (David) and in-laws in B.C. and N.Y., all too numerous to mention but too precious to forget. He is also survived by his loving grandchildren Aleksandr and Maya Hampton in Courtenay, B.C., his heart- daughter Kira Neumann and her family. He'll live on in all their hearts forever and he loved them all so dearly. The awesome support of family and friends ensured that we were able to carry out Finn's request to be cared for at home and we are forever grateful for that respect and loving care, especially of his close in-laws. We are also grateful to Dr. Reynolds of Deseronto, his compassionate and caring staff, the VON, and especially the Triage staff and care he received at L&A County Hospital. Finn was a graduate of Queen's University and RMC; he profoundly touched the lives of everyone he met as teacher, administrator and lastly PC Doc! He was Mr. Everything to his family, friends and associates and all our lives are richer for having known him. As per Finn's wishes, there will be no formal funeral service. A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date in his honour. In lieu of flowers, he asked that donations in his memory be made to the L&A County Hospital Foundation, Red Cross Blood Bank, or your favourite charity. Donations may be made through the WANNAMAKER- TIERNEY FUNERAL HOME, Box 336, 123 Dundas St. W., Napanee K7R 3M4. Online condolences at 11327197
