Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
I met Bonner when I started with Calm Air in 1980. I later discovered through my father that Bonner had worked with him prior to his aviation career at Manitoba Hydro for a short time while he was going through school. Small world as they say. As I have lived in Stonewall for the past several years, I have had the privilege of speaking with Bonner from time to time when we would meet around town and he always had time to chat. Even in retirement his interest in the company and aviation continued and concern was still there evident by the questions he would ask during our chance encounters. As sad as this news is, I will pass this news on to my father as I am sure he would want to know. Bonner. You will be sadly missed, but fondly remembered. - Posted by: Philip Forrest (Friend) on: Jan 30, 2020
First time met Bonnar in August 1975 was still in school, but that same month had to go meet the plane, not by my choice but out of necessity. I had to go and unload the flight because I was the only abled driver. I’ve known him since then and had a good working relationship with him. He’d push me to do better and I’d push myself a bit further to do better. When the airline was still family owned and operated he’d make sure that all ops went by the book, even though it was still not heavily regulated. I’m sure safety was always at the top of his mind to be able get home late in the day. He was a good pilot, took my first born home in zero visibility since refueling bases were far and wide. The day was Jan 11, 1982, he was and still is one of the best pilots along with Mark Menard. I’ve known to be able to fly into a storm and weather them out and come out as if it was routine. Not what it is in today’s world. Thx for the laughs at each station stops . Jim - Posted by: Jimmy Ningeocheak (Work) on: Jan 29, 2020
So very sorry to hear about Bonnar. We worked together in the 70s and happily our paths continued to cross over the years. Whether flying or fishing, he was a good man to have with you. - Posted by: Tracey Lamb Kirouac (Friend) on: Jan 29, 2020
