ROBERT (BOB) PETER NEWNAM
April 18, 1946 February 10, 2020
He will be sadly and lovingly missed so very much by his wife of 47 years, Ann (nee Pointon); children, Kathy (Patrik), Michael and Linda; his grandchildren, Roan, Jade, Nathan, Alicia, Charlie; great-grandchild Sydni; sisters, Marj McGowan (Dave), Jean Glover, Pat Haydock and Pam Greenhalgh (Mark) and their families, and his extended family. Bob was predeceased by his parents, Robert and Mary Newnam.
Born April 18, 1946, in Widnes, England, it was there that he met his love, Ann. They married in 1972 and soon after moved to Canada and eventually settled in Anola, Manitoba where they raised their children. He was proud of the life he made in Canada and was so happy when his Mum and Dad came over from England to visit. Bob worked at CN Railway for 31 years and after retiring in 2006, he settled nicely into retirement. Bob lead a simple life, he enjoyed spending time with Ann and their daily visits to Tim's for coffee and many memories were made on their trips back to England to visit their families.
The family wishes to thank the Heritage Lodge Personal Care Home staff and nurses for their care during Bob's short time there.
A celebration of Bob's life will take place on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. at Mosaic Funeral Services, 1839 Inkster Blvd., Winnipeg, MB.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Bob's memory to Parkinson Canada at donate.parkinson.ca
