Obituary

Former Staten Islander Sverre Ulvestad, 93, of 2900 Sugarberry Lane, Midlothian, Virginia, a longtime administrator of Eger Health Care and Rehabilitation Center in Egbertville, died Sunday at his home.

Born May 20, 1917 in Balestrand, Norway, he lived in Kobe, Japan; Rockford, Illinois; and Mabel, Minnesota, before settling on Nevada Avenue in Egbertville in 1964. He moved to Midlothian thirteen years ago.

After graduating high school, Mr. Ulvestad attended Oslo Deacon College, where he studied healthcare and hospital administration.

Then, briefly, during World War II, Mr. Ulvestad served in the Norwegian Army.

During the 1940s, he was the assistant supervisor of first aid emergency in Oslo's Aker Community Hospital. He also served as an assistant to the Seaman's Mission in Philadelphia, New Orleans, and San Pedro, California for nine years.

While living in Kobe, in 1954, Mr. Ulvestad was appointed director of a new Seamen's Welfare Center, where he oversaw fund-raising and the building of a church. He also served as consultant to the building program of Kobe's international hospital.

In Mabel, Minnesota, Mr. Ulvestad organized a municipal nursing home for the city in 1961, and was serving as its administrator when he was asked to transfer to Staten Island and join the staff at Eger Health Care and Rehabilitation Center, Egbertville.

For eighteen years, Mr. Ulvestad served as the administrator of Eger, throughout which he oversaw its $4 million expansion — the facility grow from a home of forty-two beds to the 378-bed home it is today. Mr. Ulvestad retired in 1982.

Among his many awards, he was presented with the St. Olav Medal by Norway's king in 1959, and in 1967, he received the Lutheran Brotherhood Distinguished Service Award.

Mr. Ulvestad's college sweetheart and wife of sixty-four years, the former Henny Rod, died in 2009.

While living on Staten Island, Mr. Ulvestad was a member of the South Shore Rotary, Community Board 2, and the Norwegian Lutheran Seamen's Mission, a philanthropic organization through which they traveled the world and served others.

He also belonged to the former Atonement Lutheran Church.

While living in Midlothian, Mr. Ulvestad was a member of Christ the King Lutheran Church.

He enjoyed skiing, swimming, and soccer.

Surviving are his daughter, Elisabeth Brennan, and his three grandchildren.

The funeral service was to be held today at 10:00 a.m. in Christ the King Church. Burial will follow in Westhampton Memorial Park, Richmond. Published in the Staten Island Advance on May 4, 2011.
