ARTHUR LESLIE ANGUS December 22, 1925 - June 12, 2018 It is with great sadness at our loss, joy at the love he gave us, and comfort from an abundance of beautiful memories that we announce the passing of Arthur, just 10 days shy of the 75th Anniversary of his joining the Royal Canadian Air Force. Arthur was born to Leslie Angus and Mabel Bruce, on his grandparents' farm in Miniota, Manitoba, and grew up on the Bruce family farm until he left to join the Royal Canadian Air Force, where he trained as a Navigator and saw service overseas. He remained with the Royal Canadian Air Force for a few years after the war, flying between Edmonton and Whitehorse along the Alaska Highway posts. His last job was with Cottrell Forwarding in Winnipeg as a dock hand until retirement at the end of 1990. In 1985, he married Adeline (nee Duda), and they enjoyed their retirement years playing crib, bowling, dancing, and driving to British Columbia every summer. Arthur was involved in organizing the Manitoba Society of Seniors Games and the cribbage games at the Fort Garry Legion. Arthur leaves to mourn his passing, his wife Adeline, her daughters, Valerie and Wendy, and his children from a previous marriage, Mike Angus, Jennifer Angus and Sophie Eastman. A memorial service will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, at the Fort Garry Legion, 1125 Pembina Highway. As per Art's wishes, cremation has taken place. Private interment at Glen Eden Cemetery at a later date. INTEGRITY Cremation & Funeral Planning 204 295 5408 - IntegrityDeathCare.com
