SAGVOLD, Clyde William (Bill)

Husband, father, grandpa, great-grandpa, and uncle, passed away November 20, 2018. Bill was born September 28, 1928 to Marie (Brisbane) and Clyde Sagvold in Starbuck, MN.  He grew up in Cyrus, and Morris, MN, graduating from Morris High School in 1946.

Bill enlisted in the Army after high school and served in Ascom City, Korea for 2 years.  He was especially proud of the hand to hand combat training (jiu jitsu) he received in Korea where he was part of an elite Military Police Corps. Afterwards, Bill attended Luther College until as an army reservist he was called back to duty for one year at Ft. Sill, OK. He graduated from Luther College in January, 1953 with a BA degree in Business Administration and went directly to work for Luther College as a recruiter. While at Luther, Bill and his band (the Pastels) auditioned for a summer gig at Yellowstone Park, they were awarded the contract and spent three months playing nightly at the Mammoth Springs Lodge. Bill played the saxophone and sang vocals. He was a walking encyclopedia of songs, and artists, especially jazz. These band members remained lifelong friends.
