FREDERIC (ERIC) JOHN BRELAND (published on January 17, 2009)

FREDERIC (ERIC) JOHN BRELAND Eric passed away at the age of 81, December 23, 2008 at the Palliative Care Unit of St. Boniface Hospital. He was predeceased by his parents, John and Daisy, brother Leo in March of 2007 and son-in-law David. Eric is survived by his sister Doreen; his wife of 60 years, Rose; children, Sandra, John, Susan (Fred), eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Eric grew up in the St. Fran├žois Xavier area and baled throughout the Interlake with his father. Eric started his career with Hydro in Pointe du Bois in 1949. He moved to Winnipeg in 1951 where he continued with Hydro until his retirement in 1982. Eric was a 40 year member with Rockwood Legion Unit 303. He played a mean game of pool. In June 2008 Eric and Rose celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary with family and friends of all ages. Eric was happiest that day and he hoped that people would remember him that way. As per Eric's wishes, cremation has taken place and no other ceremony will be held. We wish to thank all who helped ease Eric through his last months.
