ROBERT (BOB) BOCHEN Peacefully, July 20, 2012, with his family by his side, Bob passed away just short of his 69th birthday. Bob is survived by his son Dwayne, daughter-in-law Sheila, grandchildren, Ashleigh, Hailey and Jessica, brothers Gerry (Carol), Lloyd (Cathy), and sister Carolyn (Jim), and his special friend Sharron. He was predeceased by his parents Ann and Tony. Bob worked as a Photo engraver for Jack Berger Ltd. starting in 1965. He stayed with the company as it changed to Great Western Graphics and then to Prolith until 1986 when he and partners went into their own printing business Prairie-Flexo. After closing the business he finished his career at Magna-Tech when he finally retired in 2008. A private gathering celebrating his life was held with his immediate family. Special thanks to the doctors, nurses and aides of the GD4 Ward, Health Sciences Centre for the excellent care given to grandpa. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Manitoba Chapter of the Canadian Liver Foundation, Suite 210, 375 York Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3C 3J3.
