CHARLES (BUD) BARBOUR
May 27, 1934 - May 13, 2022
With deep sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Bud, May 13, 2022.
Bud leaves to mourn his loving wife Margaret; son Charles (Barb); daughter Susan (Dean); stepdaughter Tanis (Brad). Seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
As a young man, Bud raced sports cars both in Winnipeg's Whittier Park and Brookland Speedway, and the Grand Forks Speedway ND. His love of the sport continued, and he would take his family on holidays to the Minnesota State Fair to watch the races. Bud enjoyed all sports and participated in many. His favourites being hockey and baseball.
He built a beautiful cottage at Bird Lake in the early 1960s, which is still in use today. He loved spending summers and winters there. Taught Charles and Susan fishing and ice-fishing, water skiing and snowmobiling. Later he enjoyed horseback riding with Tanis and taking his dogs for long walks at La Barriere Park.
Bud was a heavy equipment sales and serviceman for many years. He owned and operated a Shell service station on Academy Road, then worked as a Ford service manager for 25 years. His next career path took him to RPS where he delivered to Brandon daily. When he retired, he volunteered for Victoria Lifeline for 10 years.
Bud was a caring, giving person, willing to quickly lend a hand when needed. He will be sorely missed.
As per Bud's wishes cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society, or a charity of choice.
