DAVIS: With great sadness we announce that on Saturday, April 16, 2016, William “Bill” James Roddick Davis, husband of the late Dorothy Jean Davis, suddenly passed away in Brandon, MB at the age of 76. Born September 6, 1939, Bill was the youngest of three children. His first year of life was spent on the family farm in the Brandon Hills. His family then moved to Brandon where Bill would grow up, complete his schooling and begin working, marry and raise a family, and spend many happy years. As a young boy, Bill was fond of organized sports including baseball, curling and especially hockey. He spent much time at the old Wheat City Arena where he honed his skills as a talented hockey player, and developed a life long interest in the sport. In his teens, Bill played for the Brandon Lions Juveniles, known as the Kings of the city before the birth of the Wheat Kings in 1958. The Lions Juveniles captured provincial championships in 1956-57 and 1957-58. Bill began his working career in Brandon at Gillis & Warren and then Ackland’s Automotive, where he would spend over 30 years. In the late 1990’s, Bill changed careers and joined the Keystone Centre, a dream job that allowed him to participate in and attend many events, and where he was treated like family. Bill retired in 2010, only after he was able to see Brandon and the Keystone Centre host the Memorial Cup. In 1967, while working at Gillis & Warren, Bill met Dorothy Jean Snider. They married three years later and began life on Rideau Street. Bill and Dorothy raised two sons and two daughters. In 1973, the family moved to Dogwood Blvd where they spent many happy years, and formed many life long friendships. As neighbourhood families grew up and moved away, Dad enjoyed and appreciated always keeping in touch. Bill was most notably the biggest Wheat King fan ever. A proud season ticket holder, he enjoyed attending every home game. Away games were not to be missed either: he would listen or watch – faithfully. Torn between watching a televised NHL game or listening to his Wheat Kings on the radio, Bill would do both, watching the NHL game without sound while listening to the radio play-by-play of the Wheat Kings. This passion for hockey sustained Bill throughout his life. Bill had many interests including the outdoors, taking care of his beautiful yard and gardens, and camping with family and friends. He was particularly fond of classic and antique cars and over the years, he painstakingly restored four vintage automobiles: a classic Chevy sedan delivery, a 1956 Chevy truck, a 1974 Nova and a 1955 Chevy truck. In retirement he attended classic car shows and enjoyed the camaraderie of new friends while proudly displaying his car and truck. Always willing to lend a hand and offer help to those in need, Bill was known as a loyal friend, a truly kind and caring person, and simply a great guy. As a parent, he was the best Dad anyone could ask for. He will be dearly missed as a great teacher, mentor, coach and friend. Left with cherished memories of a loving, hardworking, and wonderful man are his son Doug Davis (Pamela); daughters Shelly McCartney (Audey) and Sherice Claridge (Duane); Dorothy’s eldest son Danny Kucharyszyn; numerous grand-children, great grand-children, nieces, nephews and extended family. Bill was predeceased by his loving wife Dorothy, his parents Meredith “Med” and Eva Davis, his sisters Georgina Scott and Shirley Phillips and his faithful and loyal dog Nika. The ceremony to celebrate Bill’s life was held at Memories Chapel, April 21, 2016. Rev. Lydia Glawson officiated. Interment was held at the Brandon Cemetery.

DAVIS: Betty Janet Davis, Sprucewoods, MB, February 1930-2016. Born in Picton, Ontario, Betty was one of five children born to Hazel and Ralph Insley. Betty resided and was schooled in Picton. She was affiliated with the Salvation Army and played trumpet in the local Salvation Army Band. She met her handsome military husband, Alfred, in her home town and with him, began the next adventure of her life; which included the births of 11 children: Ron (Lana), Jim (Shirley), Don (Debbie), Cheryl, Cliff (Wilma), Vic (Jo-Ann), Ernie and Patricia. The family has since grown to include many and much loved grandchildren (24) and great-grandchildren (18), and a multitude of well- loved nieces and nephews. She was an excellent cook and family enjoyed spending time around her table. In her early life, she loved bowling in a league and had a great many friends there. Her hobbies were knitting, slippers being the favourite of all the kids and grandkids, and puttering in the yard and garden. She had many wild birds at her feeders and was especially fond on the wild canaries and hummingbirds that came into the yard. Mom was predeceased by husband Alfred, son Alfred Jr. and daughter Nancy. We invite people to come and Celebrate her Life with the family at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, on Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Interment of Alfred, Nancy and Betty will follow at Rosewood Memorial Gardens.

CORRIVEAU: Marcel Corriveau was born in Ste-Hélène-de-Chester, Québec on May 18th 1929 and passed away on May 11th 2016 at the Valleyview Care Center in Brandon, Manitoba. He was a week shy of his 87th birthday at the time of his passing. At the age of six, Marcel and the family moved to Victoriaville, Québec. Between 1944-1946, Marcel held various jobs and in 1947, he took his apprentice to become a commercial and industrial electrician. His apprentice work included installing electricity in the rural areas of Québec. He became well known for his competence and his passion for his job. He was the first to be called by his work place when there was a need for an electrician. In fact, when dad moved on to another employer in 1965, his prior employer lost several clients as Dad had gained a reputation of trustworthy and quality work. In 1950, Marcel met the love of his life, Monique Poliquin (born on May13th 1932) and they were married on June 23, 1952. Marcel was a devoted husband to Monique and dedicated father to their 11 children. Times were hard for our parents for many years as they worked hard to care for and raise their large family. Dad worked long hours to feed, clothe, and put a roof over our heads. He would respond to emergency calls from work, day or night, including weekends, to make some extra money for the family. After a long day at work, Dad would sometimes be called in the middle of the night for an electrical emergency. He would come back home, sometimes at 6am, and fall asleep on a chair in the living room as his next day of work would start in a couple hours. With the help of his uncle, Marcel built the house where all of the 11 children were raised. To save money, dad learned to build a house from the ground up, including framing, cement, plumbing, etc. He was a true handyman. Mom learned to sew and she became a very skilled sewer. She made the clothing for the family and a lot of mending. Although our parents did not have a lot of money to spoil us in a material sense, they showed us love, "l'esprit de la famille", the value of life and the importance of family. We have good memories of going on family picnics and car rides to the countryside. Dad played catch with the boys and Mom took the older boys to the early hockey games. Dad was a man of example; he was a hard-worker, demonstrated his love for his wife and children and showed his courage and sense of humour. The well-being and education of the eleven children were a priority to our parents. In 1982, our parents moved to Brandon, Manitoba to start a new adventure. Although dad had health problems, he kept busy with wood-working, fixing various things, walking, biking and helping his children in different ways. Marcel leaves to mourn him his wife of nearly 64 years, Monique, his eleven children: André (Joan) of Ottawa, Guy (Rhonda) of Ottawa, Gilles of Brandon, François (Suzanne) of Ste-Foy, Québec, Luc (Gisèle) of Brandon, Yves (Bernadette) of Brandon, Marie (Roger) of Dunrea, Jean (Jody) of Winnipeg, Anne (Roger) of Brandon, Julie (Maurice) of Brandon, and Charles (Noella) of Edmonton. He also leaves to mourn his sisters Monique and Ghyslaine and brother Jean-Paul of Québec, as well as 30 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his parents, Arthur and Marie Anne (nee Bellavance), as well as brother Magella.
We are very proud, honoured and grateful that you were our father. You will be very missed but never forgotten.
A Funeral Service will be held on at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, on Monday, May 16, 2016 at 2:00 p.m., with Kim Lewarne officiating. A private family interment will follow in Rosewood Memorial Gardens.
