October 27, 1944 to October 18, 2018
Dad passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at the Selkirk General Hospital, with family by his side.
Dad is predeceased by his parents Roddy & Emma Garrick, brother Henry, and sister Mary-Ann.
He is survived by his wife Edna Bisson, daughter Angelee (Kurt) Carlson, daughter Ginette Bisson, son Darren (Corrlea) Bisson, daughter Samantha (Max) Bisson and sister Freda Lepine; 11 Grandchildren and 2 Great Grandchildren.
Dad was always a very private person who spoke few words, but when he spoke everyone listened. Our dad loved fishing, hunting and spoiling his grandkids. His favorite pastime was watching the Montreal Canadians play hockey, and making sure his cheque book was always balanced.
Our dad will be missed by all who knew him. We find peace in knowing he is reunited with so many loved ones up in heaven. Our dad is now our guardian angel who is watching over us and protecting us. Fly freely dad, until we meet again. We love you.
Prayers and visitation were held on Tuesday October 23rd in Selkirk, Manitoba.
A wake was held on Thursday at the Ke-Na-Now Center in Wabowden, MB followed by the funeral service on Friday October 26th, also at the Ke-Na-Now Center.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Siloam Mission, or Selkirk United Church.
Thank you to the Selkirk General Hospital for all of the amazing care our dad received in his final days.
“I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an after glow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun of happy memories that I leave behind when day is done” -Helen Lowrie Marshall-
