  • My deepest condolences to the Oman family. Your dad hired me off the street while getting gas at a gas station near Symington yard and asked me if I was interested in working for the CNR.I took up his offer and met with him on Monday morning at the CN depot downtown where he promptly hired me. He was always a man of his word, I will always remember his gentle nature and his smile at work. He was a pleasure to know and work with - Posted by: Bill Tataryn (collegue) on: Mar 01, 2014

  • I remember playing with Dorrie at her "CN" house in Fisher Branch when her family and her moved there in the late '60's. I always thought she was so lucky to live in that house by the tracks. I lived by the tracks too, so I just had to walk down the tracks, with Barbies in hand to visit her. We were best friends from the time she lived there til she moved away a few years later. I remember her Mom and Dad being so kind to me. Mr. Oman would let us play "office" in his office and we would play with that machine on the tracks that you move the handle up and down to get moving. I just recently ran into Mr. and Mrs. Oman at Costco and we reminisced about the fun Dorrie and I had at their CN home. My heart, thoughts and prayers goes out to the whole family. Keep the memories in your hearts and he will be with you forever. - Posted by: Charmaine (Obelnicki) Zorko (Childhood friend of Dorrie) on: Mar 01, 2014
