Remembering Lars Nyberg
Lars faught for his life with unwavering faith for two days before being sent to heaven, to join his loving father, Rod.
We send immeasurable amounts of gratitude to the incredibly helpful, loving doctors and nurses at Maui Memorial Medical Centre.
Lars' love for Sydney was like none other.
They lived a life full of laughter and adventure in Sooke, BC with their 4 cats.
Lars and Sydney were soon going to start trying for a family of their own, where Lars would have made an exceptional father, alongside nurturing wife, Sydney.
Lars' passion for helping others, was done so humbly and modestly.
An avid downhill and dirt biker, hard working fisherman, and lover for the outdoors; Lars excelled at everything his did.
The Nyberg family has experienced a massive amount of heartbreak in a short amount of time.
Just less than two years ago, Lars' father Rod suddenly passed away.
Lars is remembered by his mother Tia, brothers Stephen and Noah, sisters Emily and Heather. Lars was dearly loved by his nieces, nephews and cousins. Also, Lars amazing group of friends and entire Sooke community.
We are trying to raise money to cover the costs of his funeral expenses, and immediate needs to help commemorate Lars' life, and help Sydney move forward with house and bill payments.
We will also be donating a portion of the money towards a kids biking programs.
RIP in Lars, I am honored and humbled that I was able to be next to you, without knowing you, and to carry you with the EMT's and heartbroken for you and your family. You changed my life forever in that moment. I am still completely moved every time I think about you, your wife and best friend. I called the hospital everyday to get as much information as I could up until the point they told me "he is no longer at this hospital" which I held for the most highest in hopes that you were either out or transferred to another hospital and still fighting. During the process of carrying you I split my toe open and it still hasn't healed. I call it my "Lars Scar", not sure what to say past this point as my heart is incredibly heavy still. I hope your family reads this and knows that he changed alot of peoples lives that night. I cried in an elevator with another couple who stood beside me watching him being loaded into the ambulance. If anything that it reinforced for me that night as I am about to become a parent in October is humility, feeling grateful for my life, feeling blessed by what I have and not concerned by the things I lack, realizing how we are all so deeply connected if we allow ourselves to be, that this life we have is so incredibly precious and fragile and at any moment it can be taken from us so it is so very important that we live with love, that we dont hold grudges, that we seek happiness and resolve, that we mend fences, that we give it our all and we always try to do the right things as we step forward. Thank you Lars for that blessing that night. Your life will continue to be remembered by me for the rest of my days and all those you outwardly affected with your energy.
