Eirik Bardal, Owner - Funeral Director / Embalmer
Office Phone: 204-949-2200
Fax: 204-694-9494

I was born on October 18th, 1970 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to Neil and Annette Bardal and raised in Fort Garry most of my life. I graduated from Vincent Massey Collegiate and moved to Gimli in my early 20's where I had worked as a commercial fisherman for five years.

After completing my 5th season on Lake Winnipeg, I had decided to become the 4th generation of my family to go into the Funeral Service Profession.  Having completed my apprenticeship with the Western School of Funeral Service, I was then licensed to practice Funeral service in the Province of Manitoba as a Funeral Director and Embalmer.

I am married to my wonderful wife Lisa and we have four children, Catherine, Sean, Samantha, and Josh, residing in Stonewall, Manitoba.

I am a member of many organizations that I am proud of, and they are:

-  Member of Viking Masonic Lodge in Gimli, Manitoba
-  Scottish Rite Masonry in Winnipeg
-  Member of the Rotary Club of Winnipeg
-  Member of  Hong Kong Veterans of Canada Association.  This organization has special meaning to me because my Grandfather Njall O. Bardal had fought and had been a prisoner in Hong Kong.
