Robert Francis Hastie

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather, friend, Robert (Bob) Hastie who on June 29, 2019 at the age of 83 lost his short battle with cancer.

Bob will be sadly missed by his wife Beverley; son Michael (Eleanor) grandsons Robert and Andrew; son Matthew (Erica) grandson Chris; son Eric; step son Scott (Maria) granddaughters, Mikalah, Sophia, Tayah and Mia.

Bob was a First Class Steam Engineer and worked 30 years at Seagram’s Distillery in Gimli, retiring at age 60.

 He lived his life to the fullest, and his first passion was sailing.  He was a long-time member of both Gimli Yacht Club and Silver Harbour Sailing Club.

He loved to work with his hands and there was nothing he could not build or fix, and would be the first to help someone, be it on the lake or land.

Bob had a terrific memory and loved to visit and exchange stories, many of which were from his sailing days on Lake Winnipeg.

Bob will be missed by so many and we are grateful for the love and friendship he gave us.

A Celebration of Life will take place on Wednesday, July 10 at 7:00 p.m. at E.J. Coutu Funeral Home, 680 Archibald Street, Winnipeg.

In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made to Cancer Care or a charity of your choice.

Arrangements entrusted to:  Interlake Cremation & Memorial Services
