BYRON ANGUS Byron Angus born May 11, 1914, son of Benjamin and Daisy Angus died December 20, 2000 at Riverview Health Centre, where he had resided since September, 2000. Byron is survived by his loving wife Jess with whom he shared 58 devoted years of marriage. He is also survived by his son Terry; daughter-in-law Linda, and his beloved grandsons, Tim (Ottawa) and Dan (Winnipeg). Byron was predeceased by his brother Alan (1940). Byron was raised in McCreary, Manitoba and was always proud of his roots there. He studied at his uncles business school (Angus School of Commerce) at the age of 18 in Winnipeg and then served in the Royal Canadian Navy in Victoria, Montreal and Winnipeg. He worked for Standard Furniture in Calgary, and then returned to Winnipeg to work for The National Trust Company and finally for over 30 years at Canada Packers until his retirement in 1979. He was a long time member of the Norwood Scholarship Foundation and a life long member of Norwood United Church. Byron and Jess were long time residents of Norwood and enjoyed many close friendships in that community. When they moved to Tuxedo Estates in 1986 they again enjoyed many wonderful relationships with the residents there. Byrons passion was his family, his cottage at Victoria Beach and his gardening. He enjoyed many wonderful summers at Victoria Beach and treasured his many friends at the Lake as well as his yard at the cottage, which was his pride and joy. Byron and Jess enjoyed their winters in Palm Desert each year and also traveled in Europe, Hawaii and the Caribbean over the years with great enjoyment. A long time subscriber to the Manitoba Theater Center, the Winnipeg Symphony, and a Winnipeg Blue Bomber season ticket holder for years, Byron enjoyed each of these activities with his wife and until the end was devoted to her in every way, especially during her recovery from her stroke suffered three and a half years ago. A celebration of Byrons life will be held at the Chapel in Riverview Health Centre, 1 Morley Avenue, at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 23. Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations can be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or The Heart and Stroke Foundation. The family is appreciative of everyone that has cared for Byron over the last year including the Home Care organization, the staff at St. Boniface Hospital, the staff at Misericordia, and the staff at Riverview. The family is especially appreciative of the many friends who have supported Byron and Jess over the years and particularily over the last three and a half years.
