Obituary of Kjell Arne Andersson

Kjell Arne Andersson

(April 18, 1952 - December 28, 2023)


Kjell Arne Andersson of Bawlf, Alberta, passed away on Thursday, December 28, 2023 at the age of 71 years.


Kjell was born in April of 1952 and grew up in Sweden on a dairy farm. He learned to drive a tractor at 6 years old. Kjell worked hard on the family farm as a young adult and he then worked on a nearby family friend’s dairy farm.

In 1975 he came to Canada to visit friends. Within a year he packed up his life and decided to move to Canada because he loved the country so much.

Kjell was a kind, hardworking, forgiving, patient, humble and funny man. He had a love for machines, was a heavy-duty mechanic, and grain farmer. Kjell was an auction enthusiast and if you’ve ever been to his yard, it would have been obvious. He enjoyed flying, loved spending time with kids, and always considered himself a kid at heart.

Kjell will be greatly missed by all those whose lives he touched. He was a loving and dedicated partner, father, grandfather, friend, brother, and son.

Left to cherish his memory are his partner Debra Weber; children Tomas (Louise) Olssan, Gunnar (Jen) Leiren, Shaun Wensley, Tara (Keith) Breen, Jacqueline (Will) Merriefield, and Jamie (Lisa) Weber; twelve grandchildren; siblings Annicka (Eldon) Pohl, Margareta Mörck, Karin Rask, Anders (Lisbeth) Andersson, Agneta Andersson (Perame Odsberg), and Olle Andersson; and dogs Lacey and Dixie.

Kjell was predeceased by his parents Viktor and Helga; and sister Birgitta Andersson.
