Alvin_Engdahl.jpg
Alvin EngdahlAlvin is the oldest of the boys and the fifth child ln the Engdahl Family, born in 1922.

I think he finished grade 8 in Eagle and went to work in the Canada Car foundry in Thunder Bay building airplane parts for the war effort after which he went harvesting in Sask and Alberta or when he was at home he cut cordwood with Dad. He had poor eyesight so was unable to get in the armed forces. He ended up in BC and worked at various jobs mostly in the forest industry and was a scaler for Balco forest products in Kamloops for 20 years or so before retiring to Hornby Island BC in 1981. He was married to Clara and they had two daughters Sheryl and Cindy who live in Vancouver. Clara had two other children from a previous relationship, Norman and Darlene whom he adopted. Clara and Alvin divorced and he later married Delores and they still live on Hornby. He was a great accordian player and enjoyed his music like the rest of us. (As told by Aina in 2011.)
