You may find it a little eccentric to inquire about graveyards; however for some reason my family seems to appreciate it. As we walk around the stone and granite we look for the youngest, the oldest and the ones who seem to have a story to tell.
Our first graveyard that we explored in Junction City was The Danish Cemetery.
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.
One of the most intriguing people that I’ve found through research and would love to learn more.
