Daniel R. Bjordahl

Daniel Richard “Bear” Bjordahl passed away in the early morning hours at home on Thur. Jan 4, 2018.

He was born on January 2, 1960, to Richard Hans Bjordahl and Nancy Jane Onsrud. He was the first baby born in Stoughton Hospital that year. He is a graduate of Stoughton High School, graduating in 1978.

Dan was an artist and enjoyed nature. He had many wonderful feline friends. Dan loved family and all kinds of music. He was a protector to many, especially the helpless.

There will be a huge void for many. Dan left this world sober and on his own terms and had made peace with others. For that we have some comfort.

Daniel married Julie Anderson on June 30, 1984, and later married Sally Fies on June 30, 2003.
Bear worked several jobs over the years, in Evansville at Bakers Steel Foundry, Stoughton at Milfab Wood Manufacturing, and also in Madison at Central Colony.

Dan is survived by wife Sally Bjordahl; children Erik Bjordahl of Evansville, Daniel (Leslie) Cleary of Madison, Sheila (Bobby) Cleary of Stoughton; siblings Chris (Ann) Bjordahl of Stoughton, Becky (Jim) Heisig of Madison, Andrew (Jacqui) Bjordahl of Stoughton; many special nieces and nephews, and 2 special grandsons; Mother Nancy Sandholm and father Richard (Nancee) Bjordahl.

Daniel is preceded in death by his step father Tom Sandholm and sister Carrie Lynn Bjordahl.
