Poul (Teddy) RASMUSSEN

Rasmussen, Poul (Teddy)

Passed away on April 30, 2012. Poul was born in Gelsted, Denmark on February 21, 1935. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Anni in 2007 and his son, Glenn in 2010. He will be sadly missed by his two daughters, Susan (John), Tammy (Ted); five grandsons: – Noel, Dean, Jason, Braden and Ryan and many family members in Denmark.

Poul was past President and an active member of the Nanaimo Lions Club for more than 35 years; he took great pride in his “Lionism.” He was also a member of the Danish/Canadian Club in Nanaimo, his Danish heritage remained a part of his life until the end, he often said he wasn’t a “Good Dane” he was a “Great Dane!”

Poul enjoyed many hobbies over the years; fishing, camping, woodwork, photography, metal detecting, slot machines and most recently his computer. His passion was gardening, he will always be remembered for his immaculate garden and his perfectly grown tomatoes! Poul always had a great sense of humor and loved hearing; but more often telling a funny joke!

“Rest in peace Papa, we will always love you.”
