LLOYD G. NYGAARD
Oct. 4, 1922 - Oct. 7, 2014
Lloyd G. Nygaard, 92, of Columbus, ND died Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014 in a Minot hospital. A family Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date.

Lloyd was born October 4, 1922, in Portal, ND to Louis and Lottie (Granrud) Nygaard. He grew up near Columbus. Lloyd was once married to Lois Campbell, and this union was blessed with six children.

Lloyd spent his entire life in Burke County where he farmed, maintaining all his own equipment. He was an inventive, problem-solver who spent many hours tinkering in his garage. He really only knew one speed - fast. In his late 80s he re-sided his home, replaced windows, and re-shingled his garage. Lloyd was just plain tough, and living blind in a nursing home was not an option.

Lloyd’s gritty exterior melted away near his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He often took them fishing, checking traps, or he let them ride his lawn mower. What he loved most was just teasing, joking, talking, and telling them wild stories. His legacy will be his family, and he will be missed by all who shared the good times and his troubled later life.

Lloyd is survived by his children, Chris (Frank) Heitz of Dickinson, Melanie (Ron) Earl of North Portal, SK, Helen (Mike) Skalicky of Minot, Donna (Ken) Carbonaro of Meridian, ID and Steve (Julie Huffman) Nygaard of Forest Grove, OR; daughter-in-law, Debbie Walker;

grandchildren, Caleb Nygaard (Candy), Ronald Nygaard, Dan (Stephanie) Heitz, Tom (Sarah) Heitz, Ronnie Earl Jr., Jenniffer (Geoff) Dyer, Kara Earl, Jon (Kasey) Skalicky, Josh Skalicky, Adam Skalicky, Milissa (Christian) Melle, Justin (fiancé Michelle) Carbonaro, Kenny (Christina) Carbonaro, Jr., Pamela Carbonaro, Natasha Huffman (fiancé Taylor), Gabrielle Nygaard, and Kadon Nygaard;

great grandchildren, Nathaniel and Penelope Nygaard, Catie and Robbie Heitz, Nico and Patterson Heitz, Joshua Earl, Maia and Jaxson Dyer, Devinne Martins, Chance Carbonaro and Bryton Carbonaro;

sisters, Lorain Taylor of Auburn, WA and MaryLou Hoff of Albuquerque, NM; brother, Floyd (Fay) Nygaard of Mesa, AZ; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Lloyd was preceded in death by his parents; long-time companion, Lucille Moen; son, Michael Nygaard; great grandson, Jacob Riedman; sisters, Florence Morreale and Florain Hagen; and brother, Lawrence Nygaard.

Memorials may be given to St. Jude’s Hospital which held a special place in his heart.

Jerry’s faith was very important to him and in 1982, Jerry joined the Catholic Church in Grand Rapids, MN. In 2006, Jerry and Eva built their dream home on Island Lake, MN.

Jerry enjoyed volunteering and spent endless hours serving others. He was very active in St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Fosston, the Lion’s Club, First Care Foundation, Lengby Improvement Club, and a volunteer for the Fosston hospital as well as several opportunities in the Island Lake and Lengby area.
