Il laisse dans le deuil, sa fille Haley, ses parents Fernand et Georgette ( née Rocan); ses frères et soeurs Raymond ( Karen Gustaw), Gilbert ( Gisèle Desharnais), Nicole ( Pierre Dizengremel), Ginette, Gisèle ( Raymond Nicolas), Denis ( Pam Wiebe), et Suzanne ( Fernand Durand). Il laisse aussi ses nombreux neveux et nieces, Valérie, Jocelyne ( Paul Rowsell), Chantale, Roxanne ( Miguel Lécuyer), Janelle, Francine, Joël, Samuel ( Cécile Caceres), Jérôme, Anne- Marie, Michel ( Nicole LaRivière), Réjean ( Caroline Simard), Chantal ( Christian Bohémier), Cédéric, Pascal, Noah, Nicolas, Caleb, un arrière neveu Eric et une arrière nièce Chloé. Il laisse aussi dans la peine sa “ deuxième famille”, ses grands amis Stéphane et Danielle Gauthier et leurs filles Isabelle, Joëlle, Sarah et Tanya. Merci pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour Roger. Roger est né à Sainte- Anne- des- Chênes, le 23 octobre 1962, le sixième de huit enfants. Ayant grandi sur une ferme laitière à La Broquerie, il a pu jouir de la simplicité et la beauté qu’apporte la vie de campagne. Dès un jeune âge, il a su démontrer des talents de soudeur et de mécanicien. Il fit des études au Collège Communautaire Keewatin à Le Pas, Manitoba. Il se démarquait rapidement parmi ses pairs en étant toujours premier de classe dans son cours de soudeur industriel. Roger a travaillé au- delà de 20 ans à Steinbach Precision Enterprises où il fut grandement respecté par son patron et ses collègues de travail. Depuis les six dernières années, Roger poursuivit sa passion d’inventer, fabriquer et construire avec son partenaire de travail Stéphane. En partenariat avec d’autres collègues, ils développaient une entreprise innovatrice Prairie Bio Energy, dans lequel il mit tout son énergie, sa passion et son coeur. Ce fut là où il y trouva son plus grand bonheur. Très cher Roger, il n’y a pas de mots pour exprimer à quel point tu nous manqueras. Merci pour tout ce que tu as apporté à nos vies... les joies, les souvenirs, les histoires et les rires. Nous t’aimons tellement et tu resteras à tout jamais dans nos coeurs. Un merci sincère a l’équipe d’urgence à l’hôpital Bethesda de Steinbach, au personnel des Soins Intensifs Médicine du Health Sciences Centre et aux Soins Palliatifs de l’Hôpital général de Saint- Boniface. Merci à l’abbé Marcel Damphousse, l’abbé Jean- Louis Rocan, le Père Louis Vielfaure et Msgr. Albert Fréchette ( célébrant) de leur appui spirituel. La messe des funérailles aura lieu le samedi 9 avril 2011, à l’église Saint- Joachim de La Broquerie à 11h00, avec visionnement à 10h30. La crémation suivra et l’inhumation des cendres aura lieu à une date ultérieure au cimetière paroissial. Au lieu de fleurs, on peut faire un don à la mémoire de Roger, à la Fondation des Maladies du Coeurs du Manitoba, 6 rue Donald, Winnipeg, MB R3L 0K6. ROGER BALCAEN It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Roger on March 30, 2011 at 48 years old. He leaves to mourn his daughter Haley; his brothers and sisters Raymond ( Karen Gustaw), Gilbert ( Gisele Desharnais), Nicole ( Pierre Dizengremel), Ginette, Gisèle ( Raymond Nicolas), Denis ( Pam Wiebe), and Suzanne ( Fernand Durand). He also leaves numerous much loved nephews and nieces, Valérie, Jocelyne ( Paul Rowsell), Chantale, Roxanne ( Miguel Lécuyer), Janelle, Francine, Joël, Samuel ( Cécile Caceres), Jérôme, Anne- Marie, Michel ( Nicole LaRivière), Réjean ( Caroline Simard), Chantal ( Christian Bohémier), Cédéric, Pascal, Noah, Nicolas, Caleb, one great- nephew Eric and a great- niece Chloé. He will be greatly missed by his “ second family”, his wonderful friends Stéphane and Danielle Gauthier along with their daughters Isabelle, Joëlle, Sarah and Tanya. Thank you for all that you have done for Roger. Roger was born in St. Annes- des- Chênes on October 23, 1962, the sixth of eight children. Having been raised on a dairy farm, he grew to love the beauty and simplicity of country living. From early on, Roger showed signs of prowess in mechanics and welding. He took an industrial welding course at Keewatin Community College in The Pas, Manitoba. Having found his passion, he thrived and excelled amongst his peers and remained at the top of his class throughout his training. Roger worked for over 20 years at Steinbach Precision Enterprises where his incredible talent gained him the respect of his employer and colleagues. For the past six years, Roger pursued his dream of creating, building and inventing. This was done with business partners, including Stéphane, with whom they developed an environmentally conscious enterprise called Prairie Bio Energy, into which he poured all his energy and passion. This work brought him the greatest joy. Dearest Roger, no words can ever express how much you shall be missed. Thank you for all that you have brought to our lives... the joy, the adventures, the laughter and the memories. We love you dearly and you will be in our hearts forever. A heartfelt thank you to the Steinbach Bethesda Hospital Emergency Department, the Health Sciences Centre Medical ICU staff and the St. Boniface General Hospital Palliative Care staff for their care and compassion. Thank you to Father Marcel Damphousse, Father Jean- Louis Rocan, Father Louis Vielfaure and Msgr. Albert Fréchette ( officiant) for their spiritual support.

FERNAND ( FERDIE) BEDARD It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Father and Poppa, Fernand ( Ferdie) Bedard. Dad passed peacefully at Selkirk General Hospital in the early hours of March 31, 2011. Dad is survived by his large, loving family: Louise ( Barrie) Russell, Lucille ( Roy) Erin, Wilfred ( Debbie) Bedard, Elaine Bedard, Jim ( Cathy) Bedard, Christine ( Bryan) McDougall; 11 grandchildren and 13 great- grandchildren. Dad was predeceased by his sister, Fernande Hector and brother Louis Bedard. Dad was born on August 21, 1921 in Selkirk, Manitoba to Wilfred Bedard and Rosina Poirier. Dad spent his entire life in Selkirk. After leaving school, Dad began his career at the Steel Foundry ( Abex) in Selkirk and soon met the love of his life and future wife, Kay Chiborak. Their future life together was put on hold during the Second World War while Dad served in the RCAF between 1939 to the end of the war in 1945. Following the war, Dad returned to work at the steel foundry. Mom and Dad were later married on April 27, 1946. Over the following 64 years, they raised their family and saw it grow to the large extended family it is today. Their lives were filled with love and devotion to each other, their family and their faith. They were a dedicated hard working team, seldom spending time apart. Following retirement in 1978, Dad spent many hours meeting the seemingly endless requests for his picnic tables, deacon benches and toy boxes for his grandchildren. Each spring, Dad enjoyed planning his garden, starting most of his plants from seed. Like so many men of Dad’s generation, he was a confident handyman, always willing to lend a hand. Throughout his life, Dad enjoyed his many hunting and fishing trips and cottage getaways. In later years, Dad enjoyed relaxing with a good novel and his daily trips around town to visit with friends. The past two months were very difficult for Dad, as Mom predeceased him on January 24, 2011. Our family would like to thank the home care staff for their care and kindness to Dad throughout the past several months. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, P. O. Box 2598 Stn. Main, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 4B3. It was Dad’s belief to... Live Simply so that Others may Simply Live. Cremation has taken place and a memorial Mass will be held at 10: 30 a. m. on Wednesday, April 6 in the Notre Dame Roman Catholic Church, 269 Jemima Ave., Selkirk, Manitoba. Private interment will take place at a later date. We will all miss you Dad, but know you are at peace and together again with Mom.

Now she will be waiting to welcome us into her new heavenly home with that beautiful smile we remember. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated by Father Barry Schoonbaert at the St. Vital Parish Church, 1629 Pembina Highway, on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 at 1: 30 p. m.

Left to mourn his passing, his wife of 64 years, Toni, his three children, Karen ( Wayne), Eileen ( Bill) and Cal ( Bev), five grandchildren, Bobby, Danny, Scott, Toni and Andi, his sister Mary, sister- in- law Pat and numerous nieces and nephews. Hugh was born July 18, 1921 in Scotland. He immigrated to Canada with his family in 1928. He proudly served his new country during the Second World War. On April 16, 1947, after a brief courtship, Hugh married the love of his life and best friend, Toni. During the early years of their marriage, Hugh and Toni enjoyed an active social life with friends and family. In his later years, Hugh was content at home, surrounded by family, tending his tomatoes, and staying abreast of current events with CNN and the Free Press. Hugh was a man of his word, always punctual, never a hypocrite, a man who valued the love of his wife and family above all else in life. If the worth of a man is measured, as it should be, by the love and devotion of his wife, and the love and respect of his children and grandchildren, Hugh was rich beyond measure. At Hugh’s request, there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
