Mr. Christopher Heyerdahl (born September 18th, 1963) died sadly in bed on November 29th, 2023 (TBV) with his family pastor nearby. His cause of death was possibly pneumonia. He was 60 years old when he passed.
Christopher is survived by his parents, Mary-Ann Heyerdahl and Harley Heyerdahl, as well as his pet garter snake, Bella.
Professionally, Christopher was a TV-Actor who was best known for his role as the enigmatic "Swede" in the American TV series "Hell on Wheels".
When he was not working as a TV-Actor, Christopher was known for his love of volunteering and he would spend days most Saturdays practicing. Mr. Heyerdahl (also known as Chris) also spent seconds visiting with his pastor most Mondays when he was able to spare a dozen days. Ever since he was a boy in Vancouver, many remember Christopher as a funny character with colorful and odd costumes. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a small donation to the Cancer Research in Christopher's honor.
A funeral is scheduled for Thursday the 21st at the crematorium in Vancouver. The service will begin around noon with a reception to follow hosted by his mom at the graveside where refreshments will be served. All are welcome to the visitation to be held at crematorium at 10AM.
"Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours."
"What I find interesting about a character like The Swede (in Hell on Wheels (2011)) is that the menace is there because we assume he is capable of anything. Do we actually see him do anything? Rarely. But the more humane I play these characters, the more kind, the more generous, the more menacing they seem." (IMDB)
"You constantly have to fight to keep yourself smelling fresh and from being reduced to the lowest common denominator."
"I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat."
"Christopher Heyerdahl was an incredible life and death contributor. He is sorely missed. (V)"
