Elinar Arnold Skovbo (1924 – 2014)

Einar Arnold Skovbo passed away January 4, 2014; one day after his 90th birthday. He was born January 3, 1924 in Eugene Oregon to Peter and Hannah (Andreasen) Skovbo and resided in Junction City his entire life except for military service in World War II.

He married the girl of his dreams, Marilyn, in 1947 and they had 66 years together raising a family of three sons, who joined them in the founding and operation of Viking trailer sales in Junction City.

Einar was a happy Dane! God blessed him with many talents which he shared enthusiastically with many. In retirement he was a woodcarver, daffodil hybridizer, wooden boat builder, community worker, philanthropist, volunteer at the Eugene Air and Space Museum, and sports fan. He was a man of great faith. Dancing through life with Marilyn was his great joy.

Einar is survived by his wife and sons David (Doneta), Brad, Greg (Brenda), three grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

His was a life well lived and lived to the fullest.

A Celebration of Life will happen at a later date.

Memorials may be sent to Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church, 29357 Lingo Lane, Junction City, OR 97448.
