GARTH MUIR (published on July 03, 2010)

GARTH MUIR September 15, 1948 - June 29, 2010 To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord to those who love him and know him. After a three and a half year courageous battle with cancer Garth passed away at the home that he loved in St. Adolphe, Manitoba. He is predeceased by his parents Bert and Anne Muir. Left to mourn his loss are his wife of 40 years Lorna, his son David, his sister and brother-in-law Patti and Len Rolfson, their two sons Evan and Scott (Katherine ), his sister and brother-in-law Joan and Robert Bond, his sister- in-law and husband Brenda and Bill Hewitt as well as numerous cousins and friends. Garth first grew up in Wildwood Park in Winnipeg, then in 1960 his parents moved their family to their farm in St. Norbert, Manitoba. After high school he went to work for Northern Telecom, CN rail as an industrial electrician, and as a Supervisor with New Flyer Industries and Kitchen Craft. Garth was an outdoors man and an animal lover. Garth and Lorna raised Alaskan Malamutes for 35 years, and Garth felt privileged to be able to spend time training and running his dog team. He loved nothing more than being out in the bush winter camping with his dogs or on the trail with his team. The family wishes to thank all the staff at MB CancerCare especially Dr. Gary Harding and his nurse Cindy Pearce. The nursing and home care staff from South Eastern Health who made it possible for Garth to remain at home, especially his two regular nurses Rachael and Jennifer who were with him from the beginning and were very special to Garth. A heartfelt thank you to all the people who were holding us up in prayer, Garth was so grateful for you. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Thursday, July 8 at Thomson In the Park Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Blvd. More of Garth's bio can be found at, please feel free to leave a message there for his memory book.
