It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Norbert O'Neil Edwin King at St. Boniface Hospital on November 20, 2021.
He was born in St. Vincent and immigrated to Canada in 1971 where he worked at Health Sciences Centre and Winnipeg Transit as a Bus Driver and Instructor for 30 years.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife Althea Woods King, sons, Rondell O'Neil Edwin King, Kevin O'Neil Edwin King (deceased), sisters, Marvelle Dann, Marcelle Matthews, brothers, Cameron (deceased), Rawlson, Emerson (deceased) Earl (deceased), Leslie and Dave (Annie), grandchildren, Tiger, Isaiah and Karm, his nieces, nephews and many close friends and relatives.
His soul was kind and loving which made him memorable to many on their first encounter.

  • Neil was one of the Instructors who showed me how to train drivers. He showed me how to care about people but have a high standard for their performance.
