OLVE PUNSVIK

PUNSVIK – OLVE Of Kelowna, passed away on August 25th, 2015 in Kelowna. Skiing into any and all winter wonderlands pretty much sums up Olve Punsvik. He was a lover of the great outdoors, his wife Elene (predeceased 2005), and his daughters Karen (predeceased 1999) and Lynn. He always spoke of his grandchildren Alix, Erik and Elise as any proud grandfather would. Anyone who had the good fortune to meet Olve would agree honest, hardworking and generally a great guy to be around would describe him. Olve was born in Ballangen, Norway on April 8th, 1925. As a young man he made his way to Canada and decided to stay after meeting his sweetheart Elene Johanson. Elene told the story that she was holding out for a blue eyed Norwegian and when “Punch” showed up she was hooked. They made a great pair and had two lovely daughters Karen and Lynn. Olve is survived by his daughter Lynn Juillet (Art), grandchildren Alix, Erik and Elise, his brother Jens (Eva) and many nieces and nephews. A celebration of life will be held at the home of Art and Lynn on Friday, October 2 from 7-10pm. Please come and join family and friends as they raise a glass, toast to a great man, and share stories and memories of Olve.
