BENGT ANDERSSON (published on January 30, 2010)

BENGT ANDERSSON 1944 - 2010 It is with immense sadness that the family announces the passing of Bengt Andersson on January 27, 2010 at the Beausejour Hospital at the age of 65. Bengt will be lovingly remembered by his two daughters, Kim (Alain) Cimon, Catherine (Stephen) Andersson, and his grandson Samuel Cimon who was Bengt's pride and joy. He is also survived by his brother John (Gloria) Andersson; sisters, Anna (Dave) Speiss, and Lilian Doig; brother-in-law John Mason and sister-in-law Elaine Andersson as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. Bengt will also be sadly missed by his companion Ginette Allard and her family. Bengt was predeceased by his wife Gillian, parents Ester and Edvin Andersson, brother Lars Andersson and brother-in-law Robert Doig. Bengt was born in Sweden and at the age of 12 he immigrated to Canada with his family. After high school he was employed by the Hudson's Bay Company for 25 years. Later he joined the Arctic Co-operatives Limited where he remained until he retired. Thank you to all the doctors, nurses and staff who cared for him during his long, valiantly fought battle with cancer. Cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service will take place at 3:00 p.m. Monday, February 1 at Epiphany Lutheran Church, 200 Dalhousie Drive, Winnipeg with Pastor Ed Mitchler officiating. Memorial remembrance may be made in the form of a donation to a charity of your choice. It is healthy and honourable to weep at the loss of someone we love. Healthy because such passion must be released. Honourable because it is respectful to admit the importance of people who have loved and supported us... People whose footprints cannot ever be matched.
