CHRISTOPHER (CHRIS) JOHN HALLIDAY (published on January 27, 2009)



CHRISTOPHER (CHRIS) JOHN HALLIDAY June 23, 1933 - January 23, 2009 Surrounded by his loving wife and children, on Friday, January 23, 2009, at the age of 75 years, Christopher peacefully passed away at the St. Boniface Hospital. Remaining to forever cherish Christopher's memory are his wife of 50 years of marriage, Isabel; his four children Bonnie (Brad), Sharon (James), Brenda (Todd) and Chris Jr.; siblings Connie (Derek) of Nepean, Ont., James of Killaloe, Ont.; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sisters Aileen and Marion (Lawrence); and brothers Clarence (Marge) and Richard. Chris was born and educated in Pierson, Manitoba. He was a Jack of all Trades , first teaching at Copley School at the age of 17, then moving to Winnipeg working as a picture framer for Eaton's, to then being an x-ray technician in Norway House. He then went back to school at Red River Community College, where he took welding, getting a job at M.C.I. Chris finally spent 16 years working for the City of Winnipeg ending up in the conservatory with the flowers and plants he loved so much. Chris was an avid crossword puzzler who loved all animals and had a huge sweet tooth. He had a vibrant personality and loved to joke and tease. Chris will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him especially by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A service will be held in the Spring in Pierson, Manitoba. Our family would like to thank all the staff on the Palliative Care Unit St. Boniface Hospital. In lieu of flowers, donations in Chris' memory may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way, Winnipeg, MB R3T 0R3.
