Obituary of Karl Martin Nyberg

Karl Martin Nyberg passed away March 14, 2024, suddenly and peacefully at his home in Deer Ridge, SK, at the age of 60 years.

Karl was born June 15, 1963, to parents Martin and Marion (nee Yockey) Nyberg. Karl started working for farmers in the area at a very young age. He was an active and accident-prone young man, who we always said was the cause for Mom's grey hair. Karl had other jobs, but it was the call of good money on the oil rigs that brought him to southern Saskatchewan, where he worked for a number of years. In 1995, while working on the rigs, he suffered a serious head injury. Following this, Karl underwent surgery and had a long stay in rehabilitation. He was never able to rejoin the work force again. This accident never took away from Karl’s love of life and his determination to do whatever he could. He worked on fixing up each home that he moved into, and was even able to make some of his own furniture.

Karl loved life and always enjoyed spending time with family. He liked to have a drink with his friends and talk about his past adventures. Karl also loved to tease and get things stirred up, then, sit back and watch the action. Karl was a loving and giving person. He would never hesitate to lend a hand. He would give you his last dollar, even if he could have used it himself.

Karl is survived by his siblings; Mariana (Rodney) Chapman, Peggy (Clarence) Stevenson, Edward Nyberg, and his special brother, Merle Joelson; nieces and nephews, Ashley Nyberg, Michael (Jen) Stevenson, Kevin (Noura) Stevenson, Christopher (Luke) Chapman, Julianna Chapman, Jamie Nyberg, Brandon Nyberg; great-nieces and nephews, Cali, Kasian, Lennon, Chase, and Melody; and special young people from his southern days, Michael Davidson and Laurie West-Burnham.

Karl is predeceased by his parents, Martin and Marion Nyberg; brother, Walter Nyberg; his brother-in-law, Albert Stevenson.

There will be no funeral at this time. A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. We hope lots of stories of Karl's life will be shared at that time.
