Baby Roy Robert Lee Senkiw, beloved son of Malinda Lee and Bradley Senkiw, passed away from a cord accident on February 10 shortly before his scheduled birth.
Roy was predeceased by his grandparents, Bob and Dianne Senkiw; great-grandparents, Sam and Lin Lee, Tat Lau, John and Annie Senkiw and William and Heinke Dutchyshen and grand-godmother, Mary Jane Phillips. He is survived by his grandparents, Philip and Anita Lee and Lou Senkiw, great-grandmother Hang Fun (Maria) Lau, aunts and uncles, Margaret Lee Grant (Alan Grant), Mabel Lee (Brent Beekenkamp), Jillian Senkiw, Kelly Senkiw (Austin Ash), Brett Bouchard (Yoshiko), Leah Lombaert (Jaime) and Chantal Bouchard (Perry Dalley), and cousins, Philip Grant, Brandon Beekenkamp, Lacey Lombaert, Grady Lombaert and Jacks Dalley. He also leaves his grand-godfather, Michael Phillips, a large extended family and several honourary aunts and uncles.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Roy Robert Lee Senkiw Fund at the Winnipeg Foundation. Gifts to the fund will be endowed at The Winnipeg Foundation to offer permanent community support for local perinatal bereavement programs or flow directly to organizations in our community that provide these services. Infant loss is a sad and confusing journey. This fund will help support families of other angel babies and will be Roy's lasting legacy. Roy descended from a long line of community leaders on both sides of his family. Community service, volunteerism and philanthropy have been priorities of his family, and this is an opportunity for Roy to participate in philanthropy. Sweet baby Roy will do great things in this world by inspiring his family to help others as they navigate their long journeys to recovery.
Special thanks to Dr. M. Leylek, Dr. L. Lach, Nurse Raman and the many nurses and support workers who took care of Roy, Malinda and Brad at St. Boniface General Hospital. Also, thank you to Kevin Sweryd from Bardal Funeral Home for making final arrangements with Roy's grandparents when his parents were too heartbroken to move forward with this difficult task.
