Roy was born on October 6, 1934, he grew up on the family farm in Merridale, Manitoba with his younger brother and five younger sisters. He attended Merridale school and then worked on the family farm.
In his early adult years Roy moved to Winnipeg. In Winnipeg he started his career with Burns Foods and he met his wife Ann (Alvina) at a dance. They were married on his birthday in Roblin, Manitoba on October 6, 1956. Roy was a loving and dedicated husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Roy's greatest joy in his life was spending time with his family. There were many beach, fishing, berry and mushroom picking trips planned by Roy. Vacations to visit with children and grandchildren were always special. He was very generous with his support, time and advice.
Roy retired in 1998, after a 43-year career at Burns Foods / Maple Leaf Foods. After he retired, he enjoyed monthly coffee time with his fellow retirees at Kildonan Place. For many years after retiring Roy was a Kildonan Place Trekker.
During retirement Roy and Ann enjoyed time together fishing, especially ice fishing, berry and mushroom picking and visiting with family. Watching baseball and curling was another shared interest. They also enjoyed road trips for the pleasure of seeing other places, as well as visiting relatives. Roy enjoyed tending to his garden, especially his tomato plants.
The family wishes to thank 6A South Team at St. Boniface Hospital for all the care and kindness provided to Roy and our family. The family also wishes to thank Roy's home care team, especially Case Coordinator Jodie, and Ollie and Armondo who have helped our dad for three and a half years. Thank you to Dr. Dennis Caners, who kindly cared for dad for many years.
