Alfred Ray Berdahl, 68, of Watford City, N.D., passed away unexpectedly July 28, 2018, at Sanford Medical Center in Bismarck, N.D.
Alfred was born April 2, 1950, in Forsyth, Mont., to Albert Berdahl and Anna Berdahl (Krause).
At 16 years old, Alfred met his soul mate and later married his sweetheart and love of his life, Carlotta. Together they celebrated what would have been 48 years of happiness this October. Alfred began working in the Oilfield when he was 18 years old as a Roughneck. He went to college and Roughnecked at the same time, eventually giving up college for the oilfield. His tenure, knowledge and expertise in the oil and gas industry led him to his current employment as a Consultant most recently working with Northern Plains Consulting Group for Whiting Oil and Gas of Watford City, until his untimely departure from this World.
Alfred had a passion for hunting, ice fishing, fishing, golfing with his “boys” who were his true best friends. He also enjoyed Harley’s and his love for the game of Farkle. He always proclaimed to have 3 women in his life. These women were his wife, Carlotta, his mother-in-law, Lorraine Baye and Linda Baye. Alfred had a kind spirit and would do anything for anyone, even if it meant driving across town to empty a mouse trap in the middle of the night, or going to fix a garage door. He never knew a stranger and was the true meaning of what a kind-loving soul should be.
Al is preceded in death by his mother, Anna Berdahl; and by his father-in-law, Pat Baye.
