August 7, 1922 - July 31, 2020

It is with sadness the family of Ulo Raabe announce his passing on Friday, July 31, 2020, after a brief illness.
Ulo was predeceased by his parents, August and Adele Raabe, brother Enno, cousin Vilma, and wife of 61 years, Natalie. Left to cherish his memory are his daughters, Claudia and Irene (Bruce), family and friends.
Ulo was born in Estonia and grew up on a farm near Tallinn. His education was interrupted by the Second World War but he was determined to be an electrical engineer and received his degree in 1947. He immigrated to Canada and eventually came to live in Winnipeg marrying Natalie in 1950. Ulo began his career at Manitoba Hydro where he remained until retiring as Station Design Department Manager 35 years later.
Ulo was a kind, compassionate, generous person who will be greatly missed. His daughters cherish the many memories - vacations driving across Canada and USA; boating on Lake Winnipeg; his inventions; the basement work shop.
A ceremony to celebrate his life will take place 2:00 p.m., Friday, August 7, 2020 at Thomson in the Park Funeral Home. Visit their website at
In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made in Ulo's memory to St. Boniface Hospital Foundation, Actionmarguerite Foundation, or a charity of your choice.
