ROY KURCHER

ROY RICHARD KURCHER August 15, 1948 March 1, 2013 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband and brother Roy on Friday, March 1, 2013 at the Seven Oaks General Hospital. Roy was preceded in passing by his parents Mary and William. Roy is survived by his beloved wife Verna of 35 years and his brother Walter, brother-in-law James (Terry), sister-in-law Beverley, niece Larissa (Trevor) and great-niece Hannah, and great-nephew Sean, nephew Ryan (friend-Celia). We had an amazing 35 years together, sharing love, tears, good times and bad. He spent his career working at Motor Coach, as a Customs Officer and Resources Protection Manager for Sears. Roy was a member of the Golden Boys Model A Club and took great pride in restoring his 1928 Model A Ford. He enjoyed the monthly get togethers, breakfast with the boys on Monday mornings and Saturday evening coffee. He loved attending all the car shows and listening to Coast to Coast. He was currently working on obtaining his Ham license. He loved his five Golden Retrievers over the years and Baxter will miss him. Special thanks to Dr. Mark Boroditsky and all the staff at the Seven Oaks General Hospital. A Memorial Service will be held at 12:00 noon on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society or a charity of one's choice. A private interment to be held at a later date. 204-586-8044

  • I met Roy working at Sears Garden City. He was always there to greet you in the morning. We all missed him after he left the company but we met again as neighbours in East St Paul living on the same street. He & Verna would pull into our driveway in Roy's yellow truck to come to our annual garage sale & he always waved to us in the yard as he drove by. We sure will miss that. Roy you were a good friend & Neighbour. Our most sincere condolences to Verna & Family
