TONDEVOLD

THOR KIRKLAND TONDEVOLD, 24, of Cardston, Alberta, passed away suddenly on July 4th, 2019.

Thor was born of April 13th, 1995 in Selkirk, Manitoba. He was the youngest of five children from Doral Tondevold and Kristen Marsh.

Thor leaves behind the love of his life; Hannah, who was second only to his one and only child, his dog, Pepper.

Thor was predeceased by cousin Jacob Pack, Grandma Tondevold, Great Grandma Bodie and Great Grandma Marsh.

Thor was a bright young man with one of a kind sense of humor, and an abundance of energy. Thor was always the first to step up and help anyone who needed it. He had no fear. He would often tease his brothers and say he was superman. On more than one occasion he could be heard trying to ease the fear of others.

No matter where Thor went he had Hannah & Pepper along with him. The three were practically inseparable. You could always find Thor, hands dirty, under the hood of a car with his older brother Josh or goofing off with family and friends.
