MARTIN PETER ANDERSON (ANDREYCHUK) Dad passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at the age of 94. Left to cherish his memory are his daughters, Barb Shawcross and Rosemary Coss (Andrew), granddaughters, Tiffany Engels and Andrea Shawcross (David Stockton), great-grandsons, Joshua and Kieran Engels, and older sister Kay Hladun. Dad also had many nieces and nephews who will miss him, especially Kim Kreutzer who was so very helpful to Mom and Dad in their final years. Dad was very proud of his time in the Navy during the Second World War and, after being released, married the love of his life, Rose (nee Kreutzer). They were married for 67 years. Dad worked in the bridge building industry and was the owner of La Salle River Construction Company for many years, building timber bridges all over the southern part of Manitoba. Dad loved his time with Mom in the house he built for her at 33 Glen, at their mobile home in Florida, and at their trailer near West Hawk Lake. He was an incredibly generous, talented, and loving man. We want to thank the home care workers, Dr. Miller and the staff at St. Norbert Personal Care Home, and the volunteers at the High Steppers Club who all aided him in his last few years. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the CNIB in Winnipeg, who were so helpful to him when he lost his vision. A Celebration of Life will be held at a future date. "I've gone to join your Mother, I'm going home at last."
