ROBERT REGINAL CHANT (published on February 17, 2010)

ROBERT REGINAL CHANT It is with deep sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of Robert Reginal Chant on February 14, 2010. Robert was born June 18, 1934 and grew up south of MacGregor. In 1949, his parents relocated to Winnipeg where he finished high school and attended University. He graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1957. Upon returning to the family farm, he met his wife Lorraine whom he married in 1960. Together they farmed for 40 years retiring in 1997 and moving to the town of MacGregor to be close to their newfound passion of golfing. He is survived by his loving wife Lorraine; son Drew and daughter-in-law Lori; daughter Robin (Gary Moore); and his grandchildren Shealyn, Kerianne and Cassily; sister-in-law Dorothy Chant; brothers and sisters-in-law Frank and Yvonne Anderson, Darwin Anderson (Donna Carlisle), Eric Anderson (Linda Dueck), Lynne MacDonald (Allan Tait) and Beverly Anderson. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews including special niece Laurie Levert. He was predeceased by infant son Noah; his parents William and Violet; brothers Raymond and Lloyd; sister-in-law Nadine; parents-in-law George and Beth Anderson and brothers-in-law Lorne Anderson and Garth Anderson. His loves included university, running (provincial record 1951), weed free fields, full granaries, rainy nights, calving season, first and last day of harvest, travelling, wine, watching curling, black cattle, red half tons, blue jeans, bird feeding, cats and family gatherings. But most of all, he loved his wife and family. Robert was a very community minded man and served on many boards. Some of which included 4-H, North Norfolk Weed Unit, Pool Elevators, School Board, R.O.P. Research Station and MacGregor Cemetery Committee. Robert and Lorraine travelled quite extensively including trips to Europe and New Zealand. They visited all corners of Canada and the United States. Many trips included watching Briers and World Curling Championships. The Funeral Service will be held Thursday, February 18, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. at the MacGregor United Church with Rev. Quentin Robinson officiating. Lunch will follow in the MacGregor EMC Church Hall. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the MacGregor Multiplex Building Fund. Make cheques payable to the Town of MacGregor, Box 190, MacGregor, Manitoba, R0H 0R0. Life is not waiting for the storm to pass - it is learning to dance in the rain. Clarke's Funeral Home, MacGregor in care of arrangements.
