ROBERT MCLEOD (published on September 27, 2011)

ROBERT MCLEOD Peacefully in the early morning hours of Sunday, September 25, 2011, our loving husband, father and grandfather passed away at St. Boniface General Hospital. Predeceased by brother William and sister Muriel, he leaves behind to mourn his loving wife of 56 years, Frances, sons Ken (Cathy), David (Gwyn), and Gord (Debbie) as well as his precious grand-children, Amy and Alexander. Bob was born January 3, 1930 at his home in St. James, MB. He began his working career in 1948 at the Manitoba Power Commission. It was here in 1952 that he met Frances, the love of his life. The two were married in 1955 and took up residence on Garfield St. It was there that he began his night studies working towards an R.I.A. designation and graduated with Honors. As the family grew, another house move became necessary and the family settled in Westwood in 1962 and remained there until 1991. Countless life long friendships were established as the boys grew. Bob retired from the Manitoba Hydro in 1986 after 38 years of service and started his new retirement life. Many happy winter months were spent along the Gulf Coast of Florida, and in Pharr, Texas, combined with trips to Denver en route. Summers were spent at Granite Lake, ON where there were usually weekend fishing trips with close friends. The joys of grandchildren's hockey, soccer, dance recitals and music concerts happily filled many years of his life. As a long-term survivor of heart disease, Bob and family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the many skilled and kindhearted cardiac medical professionals in Canada and the U.S. that saved his life several times. A special thank you to Dr. Murray Cameron and Dr. John Rabson as well as the caring and compassionate staff of 5E St. Boniface Hospital. A celebration of Bob's life will be held on Thursday, September 29 at 2:00 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Ave. Flowers are gratefully declined, donations may be made to the Manitoba Heart and Stroke Foundation or to a charity of one's choice. Always loved Always in our hearts For those who wish to sign the online Guest Book please visit our website. Chapel Lawn 885-9715
