Surname Lihaven in Brooks...looking for info

I am looking for any information regarding the surname Lihaven, last known to be in Brooks, Alberta.
Otto Severin Lihaven, was born Jan. 7, 1901 in Kristiansand, Norway and died on March 29, 1962 in Brooks.
I know 2 of Otto's siblings died in North Dakota, but I can't seem to find out if the rest of the family also went to Brooks.
The names of his siblings are Martin, Gunda, Lorens, and Olga.
His parents were Ole and Severine Larsen Lihaven.
Lorens and Olga are the ones that died in North Dakota.
Any help and/or information will be most appreciated!

Hi Eva!
Thank you for your reply!
I know Ole Lihaven had an older brother named Lars. But I could be wrong thinking he went to Canada.
My husband's grandmother was Olga Lihaven Nerlien, Ole's daughter.
I have no clue as to what happened to Ole and his wife Severine after the 1920 census of North Dakota, U.S.A.

I noticed that someone said it was so sad that my father died so young. Its true it was sad, but i want the world to always know what a great man he was. He may have died young, but through the countless amount of peoples lives he touched, his life was very much fulfilled.
He was a great man, a great follower, and a very dedicated follower of God, whom he know is with.
Just thought i'd share that with you.
