He leaves to mourn his passing, daughter, Donna Collette, son, James Collette (Nina), grandchildren Brooke (David), Brittany (Edward), Paige (Greg), Rochelle (Jeremy)
great-grandchildren Finley Mae, Logan, Ryker, Preslie, Ella. As well as his sister Denise Kurlan, and his long-time partner Judy Mauro.
Dad was born December 30, 1933 in St. Elizabeth, MB. and grew up in St. Boniface. He worked at Saskatchewan Wheat Pool and retired from Florist Supply Wholesale Co. in 1989. He loved curling in his younger years, watched all kinds of sports and did the crossword puzzle daily. His biggest interest was family. He was so proud of us all, and he will be deeply missed.
The family would like to thank the staff at both Riverview Health Centre and Misericordia Health Centre for the care and compassion given to Dad while in their care.
In keeping with Dad’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service celebrating his life will be held on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. in the Coutu Funeral Chapel, 680 Archibald Street.
