ROBERT WILLIAM KRUSE 1942-2003 In memory of our loving husband, father, and grandfather On Sunday, May 18, 2003, Robert Kruse, beloved husband of Helen, peacefully passed away at Riverview Health Centre, surrounded by family.

He will also be missed by his brother and five sisters, nieces, and nephews. Bob was born in Swift Current, SK on July 19, 1942. He worked for CP Rail for 32 years in Moose Jaw, Winnipeg, and then Calgary. When his children were school-aged, he spent most of his spare time coaching and volunteering at Morse Place C.C., where he developed lifelong friendships. He was one of the founding members of "The Dirty Dozen". He enjoyed spending his time with family and friends, camping, water-skiing, snowmobiling, dancing, and had a great love and talent for woodworking. Although Bob called himself "Just plain ol Bob", he was very special to all those who knew him. Bob Kruse touched many peoples lives. We will continue to celebrate his love for life and laughter. A memorial service celebrating Bobs life will be held on Thursday, May 22 at 2:30 p.m. in the Windsor Park United Church, 1062 Autumnwood Dr., Winnipeg with Rev. Dr. Sharon L. Wilson officiating.
