STEVENSON: Robert Roy Stevenson. July 4, 1936 - November 17, 2010. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Robert “Roy” Stevenson on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 52 years, Eleanor; their children, Dale (Melanie), Jodi (Nick), and grandchildren, Cameron, Hannah, JJ and Mollie. Roy was born in Souris, MB and began his lifelong career with CP Rail at an early age, thus igniting his love of trains. This career took him and Eleanor to homes in Souris, Plum Coulee, Winkler, and then to Brandon where he retired as a mobile supervisor after 39 years of service. During this time he also became a lifetime member of the Kinsmen Club of Winkler. Roy took advantage of his retirement and enjoyed many hours of going out for coffee with the various coffee gangs. He also went to help out at the Carlysle farm by Souris and enjoyed being out there and working of their machinery. To further his passion of trains, he proudly showed generations of old and young how to operate a telegraph machine; most recently at the Austin Thresherman’s Reunion. Roy and a couple of his buddies also discovered an old payroll railway car in Neepawa and had it relocated to Souris to restore it so future generations can share in this bit of history. The family wishes to express their thanks to all the friends and family who came to see Roy while he was in the hospital, his emotions truly showed how much those visits meant to him. A special thanks to Rose who has been our “Rock” through all of this. Roy was a soft spoken, kind soul who will be missed by all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Town of Souris - Railway Museum, Box 1015, Souris, MB, R0K 2C0. A Celebration of Roy’s Life will take place at the Railway Museum in Souris in the summer of 2011.

McLEAN: William (Bill) Campbell Charles McLean passed away at the Assiniboine Centre at the age of 85 on Monday, October 11, 2010 with his family by his side. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 65 plus years, Mary, daughters Heather (Ralph) Warman, Carol (George) Dennison, Joanne (Charles) Cobb, nine grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren, one great-great-granddaughter, adopted daughter, Janice and family and many more relatives and friends. He also leaves to mourn, two brothers, Harry, Bruce (Donelda) one sister and one sister-in-law, Isabel (Ray) and Olive Hanson and their families. He was predeceased by his parents, Alex and Annie, sister-in-law, Joan, brother- in-law, Harris, son-in-law, Dale, niece, Anna and nephew, Duncan. Dad was born in Brandon, Manitoba, the eldest son of Alex and Annie. He grew up on the farm at Douglas, took his schooling at Derry School and then worked in Brandon at Trents Bakery and the Manning Pool. He joined the Navy at seventeen and stayed until after the war in 1945. While training in Toronto he met Mary Watkinson, who was in the RCAF, and they were married December 22, 1944 in Cobalt, Ontario. While out of the service he worked in the gold mines in Northern Ontario. He rejoined into the Army in January 1947 and served his 25 years. His military career took him from Korea to Egypt, Manitoba, Ontario, and Alberta. His home was always in Manitoba so it was fitting that he retired here. Dad went on to do many jobs from foreman of the cleaners in Shilo to working at a resort in the Whiteshell, went to Red River Community College twice to get his 3rd and 4th class stationary engineer ticket and then worked at BU, Simplot, BRHC and the Sportsplex, went to Vancouver Island and ran a restaurant, back home, then to BC again working for Weiser Locks, home again and finally retired for good in 1990. Dad loved to travel and throughout his life he and mom were all across Canada and the United States. Dad’s passion was reading and the local histories of families in our community. He loved to go to their homes, share stories, and write about them for the Carberry Newspaper. Dad was also a long standing member of the Carberry Legion and the Masons. One of Dad’s greatest joys was to have my family live right next door to him and mom and watch my children grow up. Ty was Grandpa’s boy his entire life and he was so proud of Chris and her independence. In 2006, after a trip to see mom’s sister in Ontario, mom fell and broke her hip and from there she eventually lost both her legs. Dad looked after her from then on doing whatever he could for her. Dad’s life was dedicated to mom right up until three weeks before he passed on. The family wish to thank the staff at the Assiniboine Centre on the 2nd and 3rd floors for the care and compassion they gave Dad and the support they gave our family. We would also like to thank Greg at Memories Chapel for the help and consideration he gave us. A memorial service was held on October 16, 2010 at Memories Chapel with interment at Madford Cemetery.
