HASSARD: Martin B. (Marty) passed away on July 13, 2014 after a short illness with lung cancer. Beloved husband of Kathie and father of Chad (Kari), loving grandpa of Zachary Fullerton and Kamryn Hassard. Marty was born in Dauphin on August 19, 1954 to Mary and Mel Hassard. He was the second youngest of six children and the first son. He grew up on the farm at Valley River and went to school in Dauphin. Things were tough then and at 15 years old he quit school and went to work on the railroad in Northern Manitoba. His love of heavy equipment took him to Powell Equipment in Brandon where he fell in love with Caterpillar. He went on to Assiniboine Community College where he took the Heavy Duty Mechanic Trade and successfully completed his apprenticeship with Powell Equipment. He obtained his International Heavy Duty Mechanic Certificate and went on to own his own brush cutting business. He worked for various companies including C&C Construction in Brandon for a number of years. Marty got tired of being cooked in the summer, frozen in the winter, and lying in puddles or snowbanks to fix equipment. In 2000, he started work as a Security Officer at BRHC. A few years later, he started in the Faculty of Engineering at BRHC, which he loved. Even after he became sick he just could not stay away from FES and made almost daily appearances. Marty bought an acreage in 1986 and enjoyed his pigs, goats, chickens, cattle, and a horse or two. He enjoyed helping and working on his friend’s farms and could often be seen baling or combining into the wee hours of the morning. He enjoyed his skidoo until he could not take the cold anymore. He put an incredible amount of work into developing his property. Marty married his first wife Carol Wynes in 1974. They were blessed with their son Chad in 1978. Marty married Kathie Fullerton in 2000 and became a stepfather. Marty was predeceased by his parents, Melvin and Mary Hassard and his brother-in-law Peter Wasylyshen. Besides his wife, son, and two grandchildren, he is survived by his stepchildren, Earl (Nicole Kerkowich) and Jayne Fullerton of Brandon, sisters Marilyn (Don) Kruger of Ashville, Margaret Wasylyshen, Maureen (Vic) Lesaichuk, and Mavis (Bob) Allum, all of Dauphin, and his brother Murray (Dale) of Winnipeg. Marty will also be fondly remembered by Carol Hassard (Cliff Penno) of Rivers, mother-in-law Agnes Stevenson, sister-in-law Pat Hancharyk, and brother-in-law John Stevenson of Swan River, and sister-in-law Carolyn (John) Killingbeck of Brandon. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Marty’s life will be held in the Grand Salon at the Victoria Inn on September 6, 2014 at 11:00 o’clock in the morning with lunch to follow.

GUSDAL: Darren William Gusdal. It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my partner of 36 years on June 21, 2014 at the Brandon Palliative Care Centre. Darren was born on December 16, 1960 to Leonard and Doris Gusdal. He was raised in Winnipeg, Brandon and Erickson, Manitoba. He was predeceased by his father Leonard in 2000. Darren's passion was sports. He started hockey at the late age of 10. Although many of his friends had skated at a much earlier age, Darren's speed on ice was something that amazed others and that he was extremely proud of. He played midget hockey in Minnedosa, where he met many of his lifelong friends. His hockey career progressed to the Brandon Travelers (1977) and the following season he joined the Brandon Wheat Kings (1978-1980). He was very proud that he was part of the Wheaties 1979 run to the Memorial Cup final. In 2007 the team was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame. After the Wheat Kings Darren attended Brandon University and was a member of the university's hockey team (1980-1983) during that time the team advanced to the CIAU finals. He graduated from BU in 1984 with a Bachelor of Education and began his teaching career with the Rolling River School Division. Darren was a complete athlete. Besides hockey he loved baseball. In 1973 he represented Manitoba in the base running competition at the Montreal Olympic Stadium. In later years he won the 1983 senior batting title and rookie of the year awards with the Elphinstone Outlaws. In 1992 Darren sought a change from teaching and a new challenge presented itself, managing Riding Mountain Conference Centre and Camp Wannakumbac. Darren and Janet recently celebrated 20 years of management, something he was incredibly proud of. His life revolved around camp. During his years at camp he was able to add three new buildings while maintaining quality facilities for all camp clients. Darren had an impact on all that worked here especially during summer camp times. Many camp counselors, kitchen staff, medical staff, secretaries and maintenance workers came through over his 20 years. Many had a coffee with him, one of Darren's favourite things while sitting on the deck overlooking beautiful Clear Lake. One of Darren’s loves was boating and water skiing on Clear Lake. Darren took every opportunity to be out on the lake in his boat whenever he could. Darren’s winter passion was downhill skiing, a sport he enjoyed with his children. His last skiing adventure was just this past January with his brother in law and nephew in Jasper National Park. When he wanted to escape from the cold he looked to Maui to spend treasured times with both family and friends. Darren believed in community service. He actively participated on the Board of Directors for the Erickson Credit Union. Prior to that he was active member on the Onanole Community Recreation Centre board. Darren is survived by his wife Janet (Lewandoski) who he met in 1978 at Clear Lake and married on July 20, 1985. They have two children; Mitchell and Melissa. A private family service was held June 28. A memorial service to celebrate Darren's life will be held at Camp Wannakumbac on Saturday, August 23 at 2:00 pm. Donations in Darren’s memory can be made the Camp Wannakumbac Legacy Fund, Box 125, Onanole, MB. R0J1N0.

FOURRE: Marie Lena Fourre of Brandon, passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Tuesday, July 22, 2014. Marie was born at Fork River, Manitoba on March 24, 1947, daughter of Peter and Jean Wasylyk. She received her early education at Ducan School. As a young girl, Marie was a gifted sculptor of bronze pictures. Marie worked in the food industry for fifty years as a chef and manageress. She loved this work and did it well. Elvis Presley was Marie's #1 artist. If you were "gonna rock" with her, it was Elvis all the way. Marie also loved her large collection of Angels. Reading and watching true stories was a favorite pastime. HLN and ID were her preferred channels. Marie's flower gardens were her pride and joy. She was an organizer of many walk-a-thons for Cancer, silent auctions and anything to help a child with life threatening diseases. She loved all family functions. There were not many that she missed. At her illness, her family will remember the Promise of Love she made to her soul mate Rick. "I love you, she said, as she wrapped her arms around him, and gave him her last kiss. She held his face so gently in her hands and he said, I love you too. Love shone that day, from her bed of death; and filled that room with loves own light. This love of ours can never be defined, it is beyond all known love. Promise me you will not leave me she said, stay by me until I go; and stay he did, until our Lord called her home." Marie will be remembered with love and fondness by her soul mate Rick; her sons, Troy Kimball, Chris Kimball and Terry Kimball. Her siblings Shirley Slugoski, Natalie Wasylyk, Adeline Jones, Peter Wasylyk, and all her grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents, Jean and Peter Wasylyk, sister Rose Marie Wasylyk, brothers Walter Wasylyk and Steve Wasylyk Robins. No formal ceremony will be held at this time. Flowers are gratefully declined. Friends who wish may make a donation in memory of Marie to Lung Cancer Canada, 10 St. Mary Street, Suite 315, Toronto, ON M4Y 1P9.

Much of her life was spent in volunteer work. She was a frequent president and secretary of the Altar Guild, and Anglican Church Women at St. Stephen’s.

They were regulars on Cape Cod and in North Myrtle Beach, SC. Special trips included a tour of England, Scotland and Wales returning by a Cunard Lines ship with Treasure Jones as Captain, a winter spent in New Zealand and Australia, and an Alaskan cruise. They motored throughout North America. After Doug’s death Myrtle travelled with family including a helicopter tour of Mount Rushmore at age 89. Myrtle lived a life of service to her Lord and to her community. She was a quiet, gentle leader, ever gracious and a diplomat. Her last words were thanking her home care nurses.
