It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of our husband, father, grandpa/papa and brother, Wilfred Stanley Groinus, on Sunday, October 13, 2019 at the Beausejour Hospital, Beausejour, MB.
Wilfred was born on April 6, 1939 and just celebrated his 80th birthday. He was born and raised and lived his entire life just outside of Tyndall, MB.
Wilfred leaves behind his wife of 49 years, Sylvia; his son Trevor (Sheri); daughters, Tracey (Wayne) and Cheryl; and his seven cherished grandchildren, Kyle (Danielle), Michael, Paige, Brayden, Jarvis, Vaughn and Cullen. He also leaves behind his brother Lawrence (Larry); cousins; aunts and uncles; and numerous brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law; who he was very close to. Wilfred was predeceased by his parents, Stanley and Mary Groinus; parents-in-law, Michael and Christine Rochelle.
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Nick Van Rensburg and all the nurses and nurses aides at the Beausejour Hospital who all took such great care of Dad until the end.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Beausejour Hospital.

Wilf, Dad, Grandpa/Papa, we would not
be the people we are today without
your love and guidance. You have been
everyone's rock and strength and we
are so grateful for everything you
have given us. You will be forever
missed and always in our hearts.
We love you!
